Enduring tedious treadmills and dull weights for weeks on end can cause blinding rage or legendary singer-songwriter Neil Young to fall into amalgam goo and gain superpowers. Sensualize exercise with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two 90-minute workshop classes at PoleLaTeaz. This deal is valid at three locations: the main studio on Richmond Avenue and the satellite studios in Cypress and Spring/Woodlands (up to a $70 value).
PoleLaTeaz's workshops offer women a heart-pumping workout that tones muscles, slims waistlines, increases flexibility, and boosts one's sexy feeling, raising sexiness levels 12.5% Zeta-Joneses higher than the national average. A wide array of class options exist for all levels of dancing experience: feel free to learn the basics during the introductory sampler workshop, summon the inner vixen with the Pussycat Doll pole workshop, or take in the teasing and pleasing moves of the pole tease workshop. The down-to-earth instructors help everyone from newbies to seasoned sliders perfect their pole prowess, and a spin on a floor-to-ceiling steel staff can burn more calories than the same amount of time spent unsexily treadmilling, stair-climbing, lifting Aunt Gladys above your head, or attacking a punching bag made from recycled car batteries.
Firewomen, batwomen, lady busters of ghosts, and any gal looking to build upper-body strength, burn calories, and discover the power of the pole can participate in workshop classes most weekends. Check out the class calendar for dates and times. Due to experience requirements and capacity limitations, be sure to preregister for classes online or over the phone.
PoleLaTeaz's mix of weight-training workout and striptease sensuality has gotten plenty of press, including from CNN Health. While there aren’t any reviews for the Houston location, Atlanta-based Yelpers and Kudzu reviewers give PoleLaTeaz 4.5 stars.
- I'm a shy person, but I wanted to challenge myself to step out of my comfort level, so I enrolled in one of the Pole classes at PoleLaTeaz. Not only did the staff made me feel really welcome and comfortable, I was happy to find out that the other women in my class are very friendly and supportive too! – AerialGirl, Kudzu
- Casual classes are great to take as well...and be prepared to sweat like heck...what a workout! – Nateia F., Yelp
As CNN Medical Correspondent Judy Fortin discovered during her visit to Atlanta, PoleLaTeaz's flirty-fitness classes encourage self-confidence as much as toned muscles. Led by studio owner Angela Edwards and her staff of experienced instructors, sultry sessions range from introductory pole dancing to suspended yoga. Each class retains an all-female roster to further promote a comfortable environment. Before participants learn routines consisting of swings, swivels, and uncanny imitations of flagpoles, they also work to gain agility by practicing Pilates stretches.
