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 spicy 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, muscle tone, and backyard sheds. 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 studio is 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.

Sheila Kelley S Factor
When Sheila Kelley broke into the fitness scene, fitness pole-dancing classes were unheard of. However, in just a few years, the S Factor—her unique fusion of yoga, ballet, Pilates, and striptease—became renowned for its physical benefits and confidence-boosting ability. Due to this focus on both mind and body, the S Factor garnered widespread acclaim, with endorsements from Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres, and Martha Stewart. The workout's mission is clear: engendering female empowerment, confidence, and respect through sultry pole dancing. The S Factor's healthful impact on its students' bodies can be attributed to its combination of diverse workout methods, all of which build lean muscle mass. The course's six levels build on one another, relying on stretches, pole work, and traditional dance to get students twirling around the pole safely regardless of their athletic experience.
