Pole Fitness is a sport or exercise similar to what you would receive at the gym.  You would expect the same quality in safety practices and continued education from your pole fitness instructors as you would your personal trainers.  If you are learning outdated techniques, then you aren’t receiving the best instruction out there.  Our instructors travel to California once a year at least to learn from the biggest names in the pole community, so you can be sure you are receiving the most up to date, safe, and comprehensive pole education.
