The R Pole brings Pole Dancing fitness to homes, health clubs, beaches, parks infact now any where...
The R POLE BRINGS POLE DANCING FITNESS TO HOMES AND HEALTH
Pole dancing has been stripped of its sleazy image and become a rapidly
expanding, popular choice of exercise for many women in recent years.
Now, worldwide fans of this fashionable way to keep fit and have fun
will be free to pop up a pole at home, at the health club, at the beach
or even in the pub, with the launch of the first, truly portable pole -
the R Pole (http://www.r-polefitness.com).
Designed by pioneering pole dance and fitness school, Pole Passion
(http://www.polepassion.com ), the patent pending fitness pole is
self-standing; it doesn't require a stage or tools and takes just
minutes to set up and take down. And being 50% lighter than its nearest
podium based rival, the R Pole sets a new standard in portability and
creates a new world of opportunities for pole fitness.
Stephen Penney, director of Pole Passion, says: "To be honest, my aim
was initially to make my own life simpler by inventing something that
users could easily put up themselves. But it's become an instant hit
with women who've had enough of paying for hardly used health club
memberships and are bored with the same old aerobic classes."
He continues: "We're finding that the home version of the R Pole
particularly appeals to women who are after more entertaining ways to
work out. With the R Pole they can practice in the privacy of their own
homes, or make pole-fitness part of their daily workout and even their
next girls' night out!"
Created with personal fitness in mind, the studio version of the R Pole
will also be a boon for professional pole dancing and fitness
instructors. The split pole design clips together in seconds, without
the need for butch spanners or step ladders, minimising set-up and
maximising teaching time. And being completely self-supporting, the R
Pole won't damage floors or ceilings with screws and fittings, making it
possible for professional studios to add more pole fitness to their
Kay Penney, a fitness professional for 18 years and creator (in 2008) of
the popular REP's accredited Pole Fitness Instructor training
qualifications, says: "At long last we have a portable, professional
pole fitness product we can use for teaching without the outdated
connotations of dancing on a portable stage. It's genuinely different to
anything currently on the market anywhere in the world right now."
Instructors and students don't have to worry that safety or stability
have suffered in pursuit of mobility: the R Pole has come through three
years of stringent design and testing in conjunction with the University
of Brighton. Its secure, wide base provides a natural exclusion zone and
is covered with a safety mat to protect student dancers if they get into
Pole dancing fitness is a great, all round fun and fitness routine,
incorporating all nine elements of fitness. It helps to build core
strength, increase flexibility and coordination, and provides all-over
body tone. And because it uses a person's own body weight rather than
the resistance of a machine, it results in leaner and more shapely
Fitness is not the only bonus: pole dancing & fitness techniques also
boost confidence and self-esteem, and can help women feel sensually
empowered. And, above all, it's fun. Pole dancing fitness classes are
safe, supportive environments where laughter is encouraged, making them
as much a social event as an exercise class.
The R Pole was demonstrated across the UK during the recent six day
masterclass tour by Felix Cane, the Australian champion and the current
World Pole Sport and Fitness Champion 2009. Cane said: "The R Pole is
probably the best free standing pole available at the moment."
