Here is a small group of us from that night. These are my girls! Minus a few :( I wish I would have gotten a picture of the entire group. :(
And on a different note, I got talked into trying something so different, and so out of my comfort zone, (not to mention a little bit risqué) that I almost don't dare mentioning it. Almost ;)
It's called Pole. And it is a massive workout!
2 friends and I decided to check out a class in town last Sunday and all I have to say is WE ARE HOOKED!
It was so scary walking in that room, seeing the poles and not knowing at all what to expect. But the woman that lead the class was so warm and welcoming. She was 58 and in absolutely incredible shape! She doesn't lift weights at all (besides her body weight on the pole) and her arms were so muscular and defined. She used to be a nurse and after an injury that left her little options for exercise, she found pole. And let me tell you what, if you think you are strong, if you think you are fit, I dare you to try this class! You use your muscles in ways that you ordinarily don't, so it's a challenge.
We are going again. And again. And again! I'm already looking into getting a pole for my basement. They aren't very expensive and they are portable so you can take them down and put them up with ease.
Now, before you judge, (because I know you are out there), this is not stripping or sexual in any way. It's an exercise class - plain and simple. Except maybe not simple ;) Like XaBeat, you feel very sexy and feminine while doing it. We only learned the basics, obviously, because it was our first class. But by the end of the hour, we felt amazing! And we all said how much we couldn't wait to go again! I'm excited to see where this takes us! Here I go again - on another journey!
