Polenastics pole fitness & Aerial Hoop FAQ's
Please take a look at the FAQ's for Pole Fitness and Aerial classes
Is Polenastics® Pole dancing and aerial fitness for me?
Yes of course! We all have our initial worries. Common concerns are:
- Am I too old
- I don't have any upper body strength
- Will I be too unfit?
- Will I be the odd one out?
- Can I come on my own?
- Am I too heavy? Too Thin?
- Will I be strong enough?
Everyone has their own fear, Polenastics® pole dancing and aerial fitness classes in Milton Keynes cater for all abilities, our students range from 18 - 68 & in all shapes and sizes and weights.
Can men come to Polenastics®
Yep, they sure do! They have physical advantages over us women but can gain the same toning, strength and agility benefits. Our men to women ratio is very low though, our students are 99% women.
What shall I wear/bring to aerial hoop & AntiGravity classes?
For aerial hoop and AntiGravity Yoga, leggings (2 pairs for hoop), long sleeved top, bare feet. Bring leg warmers if you have them for hoop and something to drink
I want to teach pole fitness
We were always on the look out for experienced, bubbly and confident instructors with good spotting technique to join our fabulous team.
If pole instructors or assistanst wanted to come to lessons with Polenastics®, we asked that they let us know beforehand. We tended not to teach instructors in mainstream classes as we couldn't provide the attention that they require in a group environment.
We offered 121 personal tuition for pole instructors.
We ran regular instructor courses at the Polenastics® Studio with Spin City Pole Fitness. Keep an eye on their timetable here.
Unfortunately we didn't offer Pole Fitness Instructor courses ourselves but with our years of pole fitness knowledge, we were often consulted by pole fitness instructors who have regular lessons with us to better their pole skills.
How old do I need to be?
Over 16 with an over 18 buddy to pole with, or anywhere between 18 and 112.
Our eldest regular student was in her late 60's before she met a new boyfriend and moved away! We work to your ability and you only do as much as you can.
Who can't learn pole dancing or aerial hoop?
We won't be able to teach you if you are pregnant, recently given birth (under 6 weeks for natural birth or 3 months for C section) or have a recent injury or undergone recent surgery.
Otherwise, come along and we can see how we can tailor what you learn to suit your abilities.
What shall I do on my FIRST Pole lesson
Please arrive 10 mins early to fill out relevant information and medical forms.
Please wear leggings or tracksuit bottoms and a comfy long seleved top. Bare feet or pumps is perfect. For pole, please do not moisturise for at least 5 hours before class.
What shall I wear/bring to a pole dancing class?
For your pole first lesson, please wear long sleeves and leggings or jogging bottoms, bare feet or pumps are best.
Please dont wear any jewellery and don't moisturise for at least 5 hrs before hand.
Feel free to bring a drink.
Will I tone up and or loose weight at Polenastics?
YES! you will very quickly notice improvements to your:
- and thighs!
To loose weight though you will need to be eating well, as pole alone won't shift the pounds, BUT the BEST thing is that bingo wings are banished, waists and backs become much more toned and waists shrink! Upper body strength is very quickly developed AND you meet a WHOLE bunch of great new friends!
What about being on time and cancelling a class?
Please respect our other students and instructors and do arrive in good time for a lesson as the class will start without you if you are late.
If you miss the warm-up you may not be allowed to join in the class. The warm up is incredibly important for your own safety.
24 hours cancellation is required via text or your online account to receive a refund/class credit.
Currently you can ONLY book on line for classes at the Newport Pagnell Studio, all other locations you need to book directly.
