Scientists have determined that a sexy spin on a floor-to-ceiling steel pole can burn more calories than the same amount of time spent unsexily treadmilling, stair climbing, or hoisting Aunt Gladys above one's head. Exercise your atrophied sensuality with today's Groupon: for $30, you get any two 90-minute workshop classes (up to a $70 value) at PoleLaTeaz. Your Groupon is redeemable at either their main location or North Atlanta satellite locations.
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 do it any day of the week at PoleLaTeaz; the class calendar has workshop classes on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Shy beginners can get comfortable with feeling sexy after trying a taste of floor-work, chair dancing, and pole dancing in the introductory sampler workshop. Otherwise, bring out your inner temptress with Nasty Naughty Boy Striptease workshop—which tones the torso and lengthens the legs with classic burlesque-style routines—or discover a sensuous way to remove jeans that doesn't involve toppling over into the laundry hamper with the "Blue Jeans" Striptease workshop. Some of the down-to-earth instructors are former nurses and stay-at-home moms, though you'd never guess it after witnessing their pole prowess.
Pole dancing is 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. It's a fun skill to learn, and it's even more fun to perform, unless you're performing outdoors in winter and get frozen to the pole, resulting in hours of sexy thawing. PoleLaTeaz lets you try your first fireman's spin on a comfy room-temperature pole while surrounded by friendly, well-thawed classmates.
- 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 [sic] 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
- The instructors and classmates are very encouraging. 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.
