Sometimes, late at night, firemen slip into heels and dance with their poles, spinning, dipping, and stripping away cumbersome fireproof coats and burdensome notions of masculinity. With today's Groupon, you get a fireman's acrobatic workout with twice as much confidence: for $30, you get five drop-in pole classes at Physique Pole Studio (a $90 value). After your initial pole class, you have 30 days to redeem the remainder of your classes.
Backed by a motivational staff of experienced instructors, Physique offers an array of female fitness pole classes geared toward shedding calories, bolstering strength, and improving confidence. An intense, vigorous workout, pole dancing blends elements of yoga, gymnastics, and Pilates into an unstoppable dynamo, generating enough sultry, cross-fitness energy to power the entire Canadian province of Manitoba for seven minutes. Women of all fitness levels can choose from several different classes, which focus on aerobic exercise, muscle tone, sexy performance, and more, allowing students to tailor their workouts to their personal pole-dancing goals. Basic pole fitness classes indoctrinate twirlers into the engaging world of sassy spins and walks while whittling waistlines to statuesque proportions. Most classes are limited to six individuals, ensuring an ideal ratio of at least one pole per pupil, keeping bodies engaged and in motion for the entire session. Because of its small class sizes, Physique recommends that students pre-register online or over the phone. Walk-ins are welcome, but like a relationship with a clingy partner, space is not guaranteed.
The bright, clean studio brandishes top-quality poles, full wall mirrors, and a wooden dance floor that gently cushions hard-working feet with its sprightly spring. Since pole dancing relies on skin contact, lotions and fragrances should be avoided for four hours before the start of each class. The studio also recommends wearing shorts and a tank top, T-shirt, or sports bra for optimum movement. Showers and locker rooms are provided for quick changes back into civilian attire or masked, crime-fighting duds.
