The funny things you hear in a pole fitness class


Does my bum look good in this?
How  high should my shorts be?
What’s the best grip for that move?
When  can I go upside down?
What do I wear to your pole class?
Which leg? Gemini or is it called scorpio?  Outside leg hang or inside leg hang?
Arch your back Point your toes…. Breathe!!
Squeeze harder!! common
Will the pole tip?  Wow it moves
Awww look at my bruise?  No darling…… pole kisses
How long will it take me to be that good?
Can you do the spatchcock?
Awww im slipping?
Is the pole old or worn out is that why I can’t hold on any more?
No it just cold in here
Point your toes
OK so now im going to let go!!
What… you want a mat?
I cant do it!!
If I try hair spray will that work?
More alcohol for the dirty pole
I cant spin there’s too much grip on the pole
The gloves make me stick better
Do you think they match my outfit?
Wow its up already!!
You’re so strong!!
I wish I was as light as you,  I could then do that move
I wish I was as flexible as you I could then do that move!
I need more grip
Wow that’s a big pole – im used to 38 RPoles
What’s your favourite size? mines a 38!
I used to be a pole dancer – can I go to level 3 instructor training certification now
Do I have to wear a thong?
Omg I haven’t shaved!
I can’t do it!

Can someone help me down please………..

For Empowerment Confidence Fitness and FUN come and join us at Pole Passion





Nico Modestine teaches the Spatchcock


Learn the SPATCHCOCK move and techniques with Nico’s Master Classes

The move many of us only dream of!
So where did it come from and where was it first seen
For many of us it was Felix Cane in the summer of 2009 who famously executed it initially during the World Pole Dance championships in Jamaica for public viewing during her world class performance  www.worldpoledance.com
A wondrous account of super human flexibility with the over stretch of the legs and back

So what does the word mean?
It is how cooks prepare an uncooked chicken by flattening it on the grill plate
Glad you asked now ??  no means a sexy or glamorous name choice !!

However we must not let this somewhat unflattering choice off label misinterpret the skill and hyper extension required for this move

This move of course always look so much more amazing on a spinney pole



Come and support Nico at the world championships on November 10th 2012

Can I teach pole dance from home?


Is a question we are asked frequently and one that must be explored professionally and may be easier to approach and consider this question from the stand point that you are in a court of law, under oath and being subject to a legal claim for injury to another person (regardless how caused).
What credible documented defence would you be able to offer?

We appreciate it’s a bit harsh! but this is the reality today with lawyers  (no fee no win) advertising for cases to pursue, so in short, your only defence would be an accreditation or qualification in what you were teaching.
Furthermore; European Law states that you must have a Duty of Care.
A Duty of Care is a legal obligation imposed on an individual, requiring that they adhere to a standard of reasonable care while performing any acts that could harm others.
Breaching such a duty may subject an individual to liability.

We must point out we are not lawyers and not able to offer advice beyond our understanding of safety standards.
