Merge the best aspects of being a firefighter and circus acrobat with today's Groupon: $20 gets you an introductory pole-dance workout at Sheila Kelley S Factor (a $40 value). Celebrate your assets with the workout routine that celebrity sexpots Teri Hatcher (Desperate Housewives), Allison Janney (The West Wing), and Kate Hudson (Almost Famous) love. Whether you're looking to spice up your love life or tone up your curves, S Factor will have you arching your back as if you were a sexy long-haired wildcat, not to be confused with the long-eared hedgehog, which is really more cute than sexy.
Harness the power of your curvaceous body to build confidence and muscle tone. Fun and inspirational teachers combine elements of ballet, yoga, and striptease (you won't be shedding clothes at your intro class) to strengthen your core and keep you limber. As the seductress embedded deep within makes her way to the surface, you'll engage rarely used muscles, sometimes resulting in day-after pangs of soreness and a confident saunter.
The warm and cozy S Factor studios in Chelsea are spacious enough to strut and flaunt with no danger of colliding with a low-hanging stalactite or inconveniently placed fruit cart. S Factor's female-only studios keep the focus on how you take your newly discovered moves back home, to the club, or on a subway platform. It's perfect for a unique girls' day out. Classes are taught seven days a week at a variety of times; check out the class calendar for more info.

While no removal of garmentry takes place during this introductory class, it will provide you with some of the slinky skills needed to shed your protective layers when and where you see fit. It's not often you can go au naturale in modern society, but we were able to find a few places through slightly embarrassing trial and error:
- nudity seaboard
- cloning tank
- diaper commercial
- pickle barrel
- mermaid boxing
Sheila Kelley's S Factor New York
Sheila Kelly S Factor New York's empowering fitness philosophy encourages women of all ages, shapes, and sizes to celebrate their bodies and express their femininity through invigorating pole-dancing classes. Hollywood actress, classically trained dancer, and S Factor founder Shelia Kelley began her career in sensual fitness while preparing for a movie role which required her to hone striptease and pole-dancing skills. Quickly recognizing the physical and emotional benefits of performing these slinky, strengthening movements, Kelley devised a routine that merged ballet, yoga, and Pilates with her new choreography and set out to share the workout with women across the country. In the process, Kelley and her pole-fitness technique have acquired celebrity students such as Eva Longoria, Amy Adams, and the flagpole outside Grand Central Station, as well as features in People magazine and Time Out New York.
