i have seen the pole break before. just joking, the pole is securely attached to the ceiling and floor and won't break. But, if you are too heavy and you lack the arm and leg strength, it will be hard to hold on for long.

there are schools in singapore, where they have professional coaches that will ensure your safety,of course if you are super rich can hire private coach.

and yes, it burns ALOT of calories. try holding your body weight up on a pole using just your inner knee and inner arms.

I used to do yoga in the morning , but after I start work, kinda lazy, if not I will be doing in the evening for 2 hours.
Too vulnerable, too scary, too risky, yet so much love. My soul has died.

I learnt pole dancing before.
There are plump gals who pole-dance as well. However, there are not many because generally we will wear minimum clothing so as to create friction between our body and the pole. If not, we will slide down from the pole easily due to sweat. Hence, we will be more conscious of our body and tried to lose some weight. And we will get some mini biceps after the lessons.
I went to Bobbi Pole studio and Groove Pole studio.
Bobbi Pole Studio is good because the pole itself, will swirl when you swirl yourself around the pole. Hence, you will still remain at the same level even after you swirl. I would recommend that for 1st timer.
Groove Pole Studio is using pole that do not swirl when you swirl around the pole. Hence, it will be difficult if you are a 1st timer. So, generally, when you swirl, you will "drop" as you swirl round the pole.
Hope this helps.

I'm learning pole dancing at acro polates. Similar to yoga, we master 2-3 new moves each week and it gets pretty addictive because it feels quite awesome (not to mention the moves look really pretty) mastering each move. The moves aren't hard to do too, not when you start out at least since it starts off with spins.

And it's really quite a workout! Some of the moves as we progress include climbing the pole, pulling our entire weight with both hands to flip upside down, and holding our full weight while upside down with our legs off the pole. You know you're getting stronger when you can finally do a move that you never could previously.

There are free pole trials for anyone who wants to give it a try - just look out for it in their training calendars and chope your slots fast! And no one judges based on looks, everyone's just there to learn and have a fun time trying out a new sport ;)

i used to do pole, and yes like the rest of the girls,  i have to admit its very very tiring. your core must be there even before you start. our instructor did some core exercise routine with us before we started spinning. some girls have an issue with sweaty palms (keep sliding) whereas i always kena abrasions on my palms becos mine is too dry :( you will also end up with bruises on your inner thighs after each session cos you need to 'kiap' the pole as a pivot when you spin. we call that "pole kisses". :)
