Hi this is Susan Hilferty owner of Pole Fitness Miami located in Coral Gables, Florida. In this clip we are going to talk about and demonstrate the art of pole dancing. Now pole dancing has come a long way from when it was first created as a fitness and art form. Early back in the United States about ten years ago even though it was done in other countries. Right now it's being seen as ballet, gymnastics, contortionist, all different types of dance put into one movement on the pole and it's only now that it's taken very seriously. So as far as fitness goes in pole dancing it's extremely demanding. First of all there's a lot of weight loss involved once you start pole dancing but also it does use muscles that you never used before. It definitely tones and strengthen your body but it's also a complete mind body experience, because it also creates confidence in women because they start feeling better about themselves. So the overall fitness and mind benefits of the art of pole dancing is unbelievable. So I'm just going to show you a short routine that we are going to get to right now to show you how it will all start in a class for you when you start doing this. You are going to put your right hand up above your head, you are just going to walk around the pole and we are going to do the beginner Trick the Fireman. We are going to put our leg up and you are just going fall into the pole and come around and then just push your body up. You will learn while you are taking these classes to utilize your core muscles and your upper body and they will get stronger in time. This is Susan Hilferty and thank you for watching.
