Staying fit and healthy with pole dancing

If you think pole dancing is just for strippers and strip clubs, then you couldn't be further from the truth. The roots of the pole dance go back to ancient India and more recently, pole dancing was part of many a travelling circus. In the 1920's and 30's, pole dancing was adopted by burlesque dancers.

It wasn't until the 1980's that pole dancing became part of the erotic dancer's repertoire, and today, pole dancing has been reclaimed as both a sport and an exercise, with pole dancing fitness classes being run throughout the UK.

As a sport, gymnasts are competing in a number of pole dancing championships, and members of the pole dance community are even lobbying for pole dancing to become an Olympic sport. For more information contact me, Zoe Martinez on my Google+ profile page.


Pole Dancing Advice was set up to provide detailed information and specific advice for those who partake in pole dancing for fitness and fun, or as a competitive sport.

Pole dancing is great as a keep fit exercise as it provides both strength and fitness. Pole dancing fitness is ideal for both men and women, with classes being offered throughout the UK.

food and diet

On average, a woman should take in around 2000 calories a day and a man, 2,500 a day in order to maintain their weight. A one hour pole dancing session can burn around 200-250 calories.
