Pole Passion supporting Sparks the Children's charity

Virgin Pole dancers get wet for charity

At Pole Passion we like to support charities throughout the year and this one sounds like fun! We would like to invite you all to take part in the Virgin Active Triathlon in Crawley for charity on Saturday 3rd November 2012 in the afternoon around 3pm! (More info attached).

Whilst testing your fitness and raising money for charity we will also be promoting Pole Passion, you as instructors and the new Pole Passion policy for pregnancy on the pole! This will also be blogged!

You’ll start off with a stint on the treadmill, before hitting the exercise bike and finally splashing down in the pool. The name of the game is to get fit and have fun, so it’s all about doing things at your own pace. Go hard. Go easy. It’s up to you. The only person you’re competing against is yourself. So get involved and tri something a little different!

Run -   1.2km
Cycle - 5km
Swim - 200m

This can be completed individually or as a group too!

Team Pole Passion

Dressing up is encouraged, we have been told the Virgin PT’s will be in their short shorts too! We are thinking of wearing T-Shirts stating  ’Virgin Pole Dancers Get Wet For Charity’!? Or maybe just our Pole Passion T-shirts and hot pants? It's optional.

All money raised per completed triathlon will be donated to Spark's charity -

Healthy diets for pole dancers

Keep healthy snacks in convenient places at all times, such as your desk drawer, the car glove compartment or your pole bag!!

I often prepare raw vegetables such as carrots or sliced apples in the morning and put them in a bag or small pot and put peanut butter or hummus in a small container.

This way, you'll always have a healthy, convenient snack ready to eat when you begin feeling hungry. Which if you are like me quite often, this keeps your energy level up and your metabolism working efficiently, and will prevent you from losing control later in the day.
