Come and get up and about with us – laugh, strengthen and feel good!
What should I wear?
For your first few beginners pole dance fitness classes, wear comfortable clothes. By week four you will be starting to climb so you will need to bring shorts – this is the week you may want to bring shoes or purchase some ankle grips or dance knee pads for pole. From there on you need skin, so while you may turn up in trackies, you will need pole shorts and t-shirt or crop top to grip as you go up in levels.
Please remember no lotions or fake tans on the day of your pole class as you will make the poles slippery and your grip will be less, and no hand or ankle/ feet jewellery or buckles or zips as they damage our poles.
How long are my classes?
Pole dance fitness classes run for 1 hour each week for 8 weeks. If you want to pick up a second class there is a great discount of 40% off on the second class in the same term!
About our Pole Dance Classes
Aerial Fit’s pole fitness classes are a structured curriculum – 8 weeks duration. Each week you learn new moves and practice moves already learned. This not only improves your technique, but also helps to build the strength required to go up in levels to more difficult moves. Structured levels also ensure the students are at a similar level and making sure you get the most from your pole classes. We do run cardio pole, stretch and bootcamp as casual classes.
What should I bring?
This is a workout so don’t forget your water and towel.
Still not sure?
Call and make a time to come down and see the studio for yourself and chat to our friendly staff.
Always remember that we like all our students to enjoy their classes with us. If you are unsure or feel that you are not keeping up or the class is below your level, please speak with our instructors or staff to see if we can help.
Pole Fitness Beginners (Level 1)
If you have never seen a pole before do not despair. This class is for everyone – even for those who think they are too weak, too big, too old, too unco-ordinated. Forget all the excuses and jump in. The beginner class takes you through the basic holds, spins, climbs and then you combine them into a nice routine to give you the cardio element of your workout. NO PRIOR FITNESS OR POLE EXPERIENCE NEEDED.

Time to go upside down.
You can now climb and sit so get those core muscles working and view the world with your feet up the pole.
Learn new moves up the pole and spend more time off the ground.
