    poledancin is fantasic exercise, it really does work muscles you wouldn't even know existed! I lost weight with LL a few years ago and took it up, but since putting weight back on (plus more) I havn't been back. I will though when I lose some weight, it's so much fun! X

    I really want to try it too, like you said it makes you ultra toned, one of my friends does it. I was going to join the society at university, where they meet each week and do it, however I felt too self concious lol! maybe when I lose the weight!!

    Its fab ........ I did a course last year, it really does tone you up.

    Before the first lesson I was really nervous but after about 15 mins I was flinging myself at the pole with the best of them.

    Its a really good workout, brilliant fun and really does work those muscles!

    Go for it - you'll be hooked in no time!

    One of my friends does pole dancing, and she loves it. I have to say, I think I would be too embarassed to do it, although maybe when I look a little slimmer?!?! Who knows! Go for it. If you embarass yourself, you wont have to go back again! ;)

    Oh you won't be embarrassed once you get there, honest ....... its just such a good laugh, and everyone's in the same boat. Its more about getting the spins right than being/looking sexy - at the end of the day its an exercise class so you don't need to worry.

    I'm a size 16 and thought I might be a bit big to do it but I emailed the instructor beforehand and she said it was for all shapes and sizes .... and when I got there, she was right!!
