Pole dance your way to a better body this summer?

You’ve watched it on TV, read about it in the press and heard about celebrities doing it, now you too can pole dance your way to a better body this summer in the comfort of your own home.

If you've not tried pole dancing then now's the time as it's the fitness trend that continues to grow in popularity in the UK, with pole classes in many gym chains. It's also proved to be more than a fad, with pole dancing bidding for a place in the Olympics alongside Cheerleading and Yoga.

Pole dancing is a full body workout that will help you tone up, lose weight and get fit - whilst having a great time and gaining body confidence. You’ll be amazed at the variety of exercises you can do with a pole, similar to exercises you might do in the gym, but using your own body weight for resistance. From chin ups and crunches to work your arms and abs, to pole climbs and swan holds for your legs and bum - you can work it all on a pole!

Pole Motion: Pole Fitness Volume 1 is a complete pole fitness workout on DVD, led by expert instructor Justine McLucas. The Pole Motion workout uses the pole to its maximum potential as a versatile piece of fitness equipment, which enables you to improve your fitness whilst learning an artistic skill.

You'll have fun, get fit and feel sexy whilst learning a complete workout routine, from warm up exercises through to spins, poses, toning and stretches, all accompanied by a great dance music soundtrack! Whether you're a beginner or already pole dancing, Pole Motion is the perfect workout.

The DVD includes easy to follow, step by step instruction with one of the UK’s elite polers Justine McLucas talking you through the moves including basic spins, poses, pole sits, floorwork and hand grips. There are 3 lessons, 4 routines, 3 tone up sessions to strengthen and tone muscles, a fun warm up routine around the pole, stretch out session and special bonus features including a pole terminology section. DVD RRP 14.99 GBP
