1. Weight Loss / Burn Calories Quickly!
Pole dancing is an amazing workout that taxes the muscles in the entire body! Pole dancing is a great isometric and cardiovascular exercise wrapped into one! It is estimated that a beginner can expect to burn between 290 and 400 calories an hour, while an advanced pole student could burn anything up to 700 calories, which will lead to significant weight loss over several months.
2. Muscle Toning
The true benefits of pole dancing are the muscle toning and muscle building benefits. Pole dancing is essentially an incredible upper body workout. Think about you, you will be suspending your entire bodyweight from the pole with only your arms which will help train your biceps and triceps (say goodbye to those bingo wings!) while at the same time building your shoulder muscles and lats. Most of the movements will also strengthen your core, helping you to develop flat, toned abs! However, the best thing about pole dancing for muscle toning, especially for women, is that it uses your own body weight. This means your muscles aren’t going to develop disproportionately, meaning you aren’t going to get too bulky. Your muscles will develop as your skills improve while your body stays light and agile.
3. Increased Flexibility and Balance
Pole dancing requires a lot of flexibility. If you can’t touch your toes right now then you will be able to after a few months of pole dancing! Not only will you see increased flexibility but also improved balance! Pole dancing requires you to constantly control your fast twist muscle fibres to stabilise yourself – leading to improved balance in everyday life. This improves your kinaesthetic awareness and helps to prevent trips and falls. In general, these improved abilities will help you to avoid accidents and to stay much more nimble and light on your feet.
Pole dancing is also a lot of fun and you’ll be amazed at the kinds of moves you can pull off as you get proficient. If you’re looking for a new way to improve your health and fitness then, this is definitely one to try. So why not try a class today at Cobra Pole Fitness – Al Bandar.
