Am I fit enough to start?
Absolutely! Whether you've trained hard all your life or it's your very first session, we cater for all fitness levels. The outdoor and group fitness session operate a tiered ability level system, so you can rest assured you'll only ever be expected to work to your own level. You'll be pushed, and asked to get outside your comfort zone for sure - but were here to help and improve your fitness, never to try and break you!
How often should I train?
As much as you can! But in reality we know that people do have other commitments. We recommend doing some kind of formal exercise at least 3 times a week. But in conjunction with this you should try and stay as active as you can day to day -walking, gardening or anything which requires you to move around more.
What should I wear? What should I bring?
For any of our sessions, we recommend wearing normal sports/active wear. For outdoor session we recommend warmer clothing in the winter and waterproofs when it's raining. Sturdy good quality sports footwear is also recommended.
For all sessions the basics -
Trainers (although you'll be bare foot for pole fitness)
Shorts/jogging bottoms/sports tights
Always bring water to keep hydrated and a sweat towel for when its hot.
Do you supply the equipment?
Yes! All equipment required for the session will be supplied by us (apart from the things recommended above) -so all you need to do is show up!
Do you have to have a dance/gymnastics background for pole fitness?
Nope, Lou didn't! Everyone has to start somewhere, but starting is they key! It's about having fun, finding new ways of moving and discovering what your body is really capable of.
I want to start but I'm nervous!?
Starting anything new is always a daunting prospect and taking that first step is always the hardest. It's perfectly natural to feel a bit nervous or apprehensive. Everyone has been in that position and we understand. We can honestly say from experience that once you're there and getting stuck in you'll wonder what all the fuss was about. The hardest part of any fitness journey is actually getting your kit on and turning up in the first place. Feel free to give Lou or Adam a shout prior to the session if you've got concerns or you just need us to reassure you. But most of all - just show up :-)
