What is Pole Fitness?
Pole dancing, or Pole Fitness, is a fun and physically demanding form of exercise that can make you fit and feel sexy at the same time. It is a beautifully progressive form of exercise that begins with moves that someone with no experience can quickly master; right up to demanding poses and combos that challenge even experienced dancers. So no matter which end of the spectrum you are on pole dance has something to offer you.

Do I need any previous dance or gymnastics experience?
No athleticism, dance background or flexibility is necessary to join the fun. All you need is a positive attitude and an open mind. If you've been searching for a workout that you'll actually look forward to, then Arete Pole Fitness has it.

Anyone can do it, no matter what your age, size or fitness level. Whether you're wearing 6-inch heels or your frumpiest T-shirt. There's something for everyone to learn no matter what kind of shape you're in.

What should I wear?
​Dress for a great workout. Shorts and a tank top are recommended for beginners. You will be working up a sweat, but also skin-to-pole contact is important for stability in many moves and poses.
