My New Pole Friend

My New Pole Friend
Just the other day I was half way through one of my dance classes and did a rather grueling core workout. I know how important it is to have a strong core and how good it feels to give it a real good workout.

The Pole, Rheumatoid Arthritis And I

The Pole, Rheumatoid Arthritis And I
“You will never be able to do anything like that, you are ill and that is the point.” When it came to sports I have always been one of the lazy children in my surrounding.

I can hold my own body weight for a long time in many different ways, so I’m quite proud of myself! I have always wondered why I have all this strength yet when it comes to holding actual weights or doing press-ups I fail miserably every time. Just the other day after all these years of...

Sexy Now, Sexy Then

Sexy Now, Sexy Then
You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby! It may sound like a cliche, but it’s true in more ways than one; though it may be hard for residents of the 21st century to believe, once upon a time – and not even so long ago – thin was definitely not in. In fact, through much of human history, a slender body was considered quite undesirable, as it wasn’t an indication of good health or...

How Do I Know “My Level”?

How Do I Know “My Level”?
Do you all know which level you are at in pole dancing? Are there more levels than beginners, intermediates and professional? Maybe some mixed-levels? I Really Don’t Know At first I thought it’s easy to classify. Beginners just started pole dancing and are lucky being able to invert.

Strong Is The New Sexy

Strong Is The New Sexy
