Today's Groupon offers a pole-based exercise more effective than 1920s pole sitting, more energizing than pole vaulting, and more sensual than polenta: for $22, you get six 50-minute sessions of core-strengthening pole-dance classes or thigh-trimming exotic chair classes (a $49 value) at Xpose Fitness. Choose between four Xpose locations:
A favorite exercise of telephone-line repairmen, firefighters, and skyscraper iron workers, pole dancing provides a challenging yet approachable full-body workout for all adult clients. You’ll battle high blood pressure with the power of dance, whirling away stress and weight like a flank steak in a clothes dryer. Classes at Xpose Fitness are a perfect way to spicy up your exercise routine or surprise significant others with an activity more exciting than making them up like a clown while they are sleeping.
SmartWoman reported on Teri Hatcher's Oprah segment in which she flaunted the positive physical effect of Xpose. TLC, CNN, and The John Hopkins News-Letter featured Xpose's fun and flirty workout programs.
- …this is the new craze. Teri Hatcher was on Oprah touting the confidence boosting, muscle toning effects of Xpose Fitness. She is our new inspiration girleens. – IttyBittyCityGirl, SmartWoman
- …perhaps more important than the obvious physical benefits, "self-confidence" is a word heard throughout the Xpose studio. There's something weirdly empowering about strutting around to the pulsating music and mastering a series of rather difficult moves. – Melissa Artnak, The John Hopkins News-Letter
Owner Anita Ammon’s disinterest in logging jogging hours on the treadmill led her to develop Xpose’s approach to keeping fitness fun. The class schedule offers 50-minute sessions organized into varying degrees of difficulty by the cheerful staff. Beginner sessions prep strengthening, walking, and transitional moves while advanced offerings focus on climbing, inverted moves, intricate spins, and introductory astrophysics. Choose the classes that are right for you, and then call ahead to make a reservation. Both pole and chair classes employ natural movements to increase flexibility, improve cardiovascular fitness, and produce long, lean muscles while maintaining a fun environment.
