What is Roar Pole Fitness?
Pole Fitness is an increasingly popular fitness alternative enjoyed by men and women of all ages. Roar Pole Fitness incorporates resistance training as you are carrying your body weight on your arms and legs as you lift or spin around a pole as well as an upper body workout requiring you to develop your core muscles to be able to do more advanced moves. Pole fitness is a great all-body work out but in particular an incredible core workout! It will help you build core strength like no other workout can – just take note of the professional and advanced polers… they have super strong abs because of the intensity of the exercise and the demands that poling has from your core for those advanced moves. Roar Pole Fitness will help you build strength, fitness, flexibility, co-ordination and balance. You get to improve your dance skills and get fitter at the same time – it’s really great fun!
Like all types of dancing, pole fitness gives you a cardiovascular workout, which raises your heart rate and helps burns fat. Participating in pole fitness on a consistent basis will contribute to overall improvements in balance, stability, posture, strength, flexibility, co-ordination, confidence, body awareness and most importantly- EMPOWERMENT.
