Yesterday I got to try Pole Dancing! This was something that I have been wanting to do for a long, long time, but never have. But then I recently started following OC Pole Fitness on Twitter, and Collette posted about a special deal on a first time class, so I jumped on the opportunity!
The room was gorgeous and clean:
I was hoping my friend Lindsey was going to join me, but she skipped out. :( Oh well, it was fine. I actually had a GREAT time! It is an INCREDIBLE workout. They gave us a demonstration at the beginning of class to show us what we could do if we continued coming to classes, and let me tell you - these women are incredible. They make it look easy! I can tell you from first hand knowledge, it is anything BUT easy, and I was doing the simple stuff. :S
We did some floor work (which was hard enough) and then did some simple stuff on the pole. I am not coordinated - it takes me forever to dissect every footstep and hand move, and of course, it feels odd to move your hips that way. And then we moved on to spins! The basics of a spin - reasonably easy. But of course, Miss Uncoordinated, I couldn't get my feet in the right spots. I'll have some shin bruising tomorrow. LOL You know what else I will have? Pain from my shoulders to my hips! My arms were burning. And then after spinning around a pole, we did what Collette calls "End Workout" - that pretty much finished off my arms and abs.
As much as I am complaining, I loved it. LOVED it. I hope H gets a job soon, because I want an unlimited plan. And a pole. :D
