ABS & ARMS
This fitness class we created help’s to build up your upper body and core strength, whether it be for achieving those harder moves in pole dancing or just for your own personal fitness and toning. The circuit changes every 8 weeks to challenge you.
This is an intense fitness class which focuses on toning up your body with body weight exercises. We focus on working out the abs, butts and thighs doing exercises like squats, lunges and burpees in this killer class. This class is constantly changing so your body doesn’t get used to doing the same exercises and movements for faster results.
BACK & SHOULDERS
We created this class to increase the flexibility in your back and shoulders. Pole dancers tend to have tight shoulders if they don’t stretch, which can restrict you in doing certain moves. Having good back and shoulder flexibility is really going to assist you in your pole journey.
This is a circuit class which we structured to sculpt your entire body combining cardio, light weights and body weight exercises. Your focus will be on correct technique and increasing the number of repetitions/weight at each station each week. The circuit will change every 8 weeks to keep you on your toes.
This intense fitness class is not for the faint hearted! In this 45min class you will work your entire body and get your heart pumping. Be ready to work up a sweat, and we promise that you’ll see your fitness improve in no time.

Kickboxing with Kat is an intense workout. She will get you sweating in no time as one of her favourite exercises are burpees. Kat will teach you how to punch, kick and hold the pads with the correct technique in addition she will get you doing high kicks and speed boxing in no time. This class is high impact with cardio.
This class is designed to increase your flexibility with the goal of achieving the splits. Being able to do the splits is going to assist you in your pole dancing by helping you with your lifts and inverts, most importantly, you increase your flexibility which in turn means you will be less likely to injure yourself. We recommend doing this class 3 times a week to maintain your flexibility and up to 5 times a week to improve your flexibility.
