“It doesn’t feel like a fitness class. It’s fun and never boring,” says Melissa, of the increased interest in the discipline. “And now that it’s viewed as a respectable sport, it’s becoming even more accessible to people.”

She adds that it does wonders for your body confidence too – allowing women to embrace their femininity and sexuality.

How was the first discover pole class? 

When Lauren turns up to one of our shiny seven-pole studio – off Old Street – her initial misconceptions about the type of person who willingly writhes around a pole on a Sunday morning were swiftly busted.

We had two twenty-something women who wanted to try “something different” than a regular gym class, people of different shapes and sizes, and even a man. (Have you seen our new Pole Lads class yet?)

Join us everyday and discover pole in Old Street.
