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. Choose from two fitness options from Tantra Fitness’s Vancouver and Langley locations:
- For $45, you get one month of unlimited cardio and dance group classes (a $115 value).
- For $60, you get a punch-card good for any four classes (up to a $120 value).
Tantra Fitness eschews traditional fitness regimens, cultivating a collection of sensual sculpting classes and cardio-kicking disciplines. With either Groupon option, clients can choose from the many classes in Tantra Fitness's repertoire of sultry, fat-burning workouts. The Pussycat Dawls chair-dancing class spices up cardio workouts with props, while participants harness the moves known only to professional Shakira impersonators in a belly-dancing fusion class. The Sexy Flexy class bends and stretches the human body in such a manner to make even a blushing Gumby excuse himself from the room. While the unlimited monthly option can’t be used for pole classes, those opting for the four-class punch card can sample a taste of Tantra Fitness’s five levels of pole dancing, from the basic Pole 101 to the acrobatic Pole 505 for expert scalers and telephone repairmen.
Classes are offered at both Tantra Fitness locations throughout the week; check Vancouver's schedule or Langley's schedule for the times at the fitness centre nearest you. With a roster of skilled instructors and a welcoming, non-judgmental approach to wellness, Tantra Fitness provides an ideal environment for equal doses of confidence boosting and calorie scorching.

Tantra Fitness's owner Tammy Morris, a professional pole dancer, helms a staff comprised of circus aerialists, choreographers, and fitness specialists to help women tone their bodies through alternative fitness regimens. Coaches lead an array of fitness classes designed around their fun factor, value as body-weight-resistance exercises, and usefulness in mocking inflexible scarecrows. Topics include pole dancing, chair-based workouts, and dance routines ranging from ballet to hip hop as well as acro-stretch classes that challenge muscles to bend through exercises inspired by Chinese circus performers. Parties and private lessons bring small groups of students together to learn pole or lap-dance routines, or hone their professional jewel-theft techniques in a flexibility-enhancing exercise of their choice.
