Pole Passion Blogging Thank you as we welcome in 2012 our 11th year

Wow more amazing comments on Pole Passion Blogging

I was happy and thrilled to receive such wonderful comments today with a little back log of emails from the Christmas period
Tapping away for what now seems my life (yes I have children and a very supportive husband that perhaps I take for granted over the passion of my subject , hobby and job ) – the pole!

I just want to say a huge thank you to all my supporters, friends and colleagues and to step back from busy life and to be grateful that I have the opportunity to share my knowledge (Pole Passion).

I started this business just over 10 years ago for personal growth and development, mentally and physically, which still continues 10 years on but had no idea at the time I would be inspiring so many worldwide either (at the beginning the internet and mobile phones did not exist!!)

With this thought I will promise to share more of my ’Secrets’ in 2012 and continue to work hard for myself, family and friends near and far.
With the knowledge of Wishing you all an amazing 2012 which will be more positive than before creating you and I more fabulous opportunities remaining healthy as possible both mentally and physically
I wish you all to LIVE, LOVE & LAUGH daily and unselfishly and my very special wishes go to my personal friend, Marion of over 20 years (she was a huge inspiration to me at the grand old age of 99 years, who I found out had passed away Christmas Eve) her wisdom lives on…….
Hugs & Passion Kay Penney  x


Atlanta Georgia USA - This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. You’ve got a design here that’s not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as your Company
NewYork USA - It is rare for me to discover something on the web that's as entertaining and intriguing as what you've got here. Your page is lovely, your graphics are outstanding, and what's more, you use source that are relevant to what you're talking about.
Great article, I just given this onto a co-worker who was doing a little research on that. And he in fact purchased me lunch because I discovered it for him FD :) .. So let me reword that:

Thanks for the treat! But yeah Thankx for taking the time to talk about pole

Is it safe to use a fake tan during pole dancing for fitness?

Do Pole Dancers Use tanning products and is it safe to do so?

- We do generally have a code of conduct for safety reasons here.

Do NOT to apply a face tan or body tan up to 24 hours before going on the pole and always shower after tan application.
This is for two reasons as some tanning products can cause a slight slippery (oil based) residue which may make a participant slip off the pole (not a good practice and very dangerous!) the second reason is they may deposit a slippery residue when using the equipment for other people using the equipment.
Our general rule is NOT to apply any cream, lotions or moisturisers prior to going on the equipment - showering before is highly recommended.

There are many pole gripping products now on the market, that are suitable for use, prior to pole which helps with pole technique, however non that are of a tanning/colouring nature for the skin!!

Mighty grip – powder based
Dew Point Pole – Moisturising grip
Gorilla Gold – tacky wax impregnated cloth
Liquid Chalk – liquid chalky based

Pole Passion Instructor Training - Pole & Burlesque - what makes us so unique and special

Highlights of the Pole Passion Pole & Burlesque Instructor training

Pole Passion’s foundations were established in the Pole industry from its birth here in the UK since the early 2000’s before it was desired as a fitness form and most definitely before it was considered as one of the new ideas for thousands of ladies and some men, across the world to keep healthy and active while having great challenging fun.

Founder Kay Penney, passionate about all things fitness, decided to think out of the box and design something new for the fitness industry. Of course it didn’t start out like that as Kay found the techniques on and around the pole a personal challenge when looking for something to rekindle her figure and mental positivity, after having given birth of her third child. A mammoth and almost impossible task at that time, especially as the fitness consultant she employed to help her, after one year, told her Pole Dance and Fitness would not be accepted or accredited in the fitness industry and IF they were,!! it would take at least 8 years or so – Fuelled by those words, Kay, what some two years later, had Pole Passion’s comprehensive fitness Instructor level 1 and Advanced level 2 courses accredited by REP’s (Register of Exercise Professionals) the route of all European fitness professionals that are monitored yearly and governed by strict code of conducts. Later published, Elite Accredited Level 3 and Burlesque for Fitness accredited courses, now also offered.

Pole Passion today is one of the most highly recognised Pole Training Providers and Brands in the pole world – developing comprehensive courses with great, comprehensive content and excellent value for money. One day courses costing as little as £150, we also offer discounts if more than one course is booked at the same time too. Students have attended as far from the USA, Russia, Europe, Ireland and Scotland to learn the Pole Passion way. We pride ourselves on being thorough and progressing each individual to their next stage, before, during and after they have attended our courses, whether an experienced instructor already with a fitness and dance back grounds looking for the well-deserved credibility or whether totally new to fitness, dance and or the pole 

The main benefits of becoming accredited have to be by far the credibility aspect and industry recognition in what you do is recognised and awarded to the highest of industry awards not to mention the fact your insurance will be cheaper and valid too. You will have the confidence and peace of mind you are teaching safely, correctly and effectively:- learning ways of progressing and supporting your participants without causing possible delayed injury or incorrect techniques.

NEW for 2012 we are now offering license opportunities to join our team at a very low set up costs once you have reached the required industry standards. We also offer you to join our Rpole equipment affiliate programme whereby sharing the rewards throughout the pole industry. Rpole was innovated by the Pole Passion team as there was a need for a portable and lightweight pole that could go anywhere, easily, to support our training programmes – Today we are proud to have created the world’s first, most portable and lightest pole in the world. We inspire people from all walks of life, from world champions, Felix Cane and Alesia Vazmitsel to everyday people, like me, offering world wide networking opportunities and to be part of World Pole Dance and Miss Pole Dance UK, owned and operated by Pole Passion, with our motto always being -
