What should I wear?
Most people start off in their jogging bottoms, a vest top or T-shirt and a pair of trainers. As the weeks go on, you may want to wear cropped pants or shorts and a skimpier top as this does help with grip on the pole. As feeling sexy and confident is an important part of fitness pole dancing, the key is to feel comfortable in what you're wearing. If you don't feel comfortable in shorts then always wear your tracksuit, but if you feel sexier with less clothes on, then this is what will work better for you.
You may want to invest in some dance shoes as the weeks go on, as pointing your toes helps make moves look more graceful and this is often difficult in trainers.
Why shouldn't I wear any body lotion?
If you wear anything on your skin, including body lotion, fake tan and hand cream it will seriously effect your ability to grip the pole and you will just slide off.
What if I'm not strong enough to hold my body weight?
People very rarely manage all the moves on the pole without some practice initially. Week by week you will feel improvements to your upper body and core strength and the spins and lifts will become easier. Fitness Pole Dancing will help build your strength and muscle tone.
