Pole Fitness and Pole Dancing can help people suffering from Mental Health issues

UK Active and Leeds University have conducted a  study as to how exercise can give a positive benefit and increase the general well being of students who are less active.

Not only can pole help with flexibility, strengthening, and conditioning. It can have a huge impact on the general wellbeing of students suffering from mental health issues

Exercise increases the serotonin levels in the bloodstream therefore giving that feel good feeling, boosts your mood and overall sense of well-being. It can also improve your appetite and sleep cycles, which are often negatively affected by depression.

Regular classes also help balance your body's levels of stress hormones such as adrenaline.

The grading is a unique concept to pole fitness. Developed by Pole Passion in 2009 with the objective to support students and instructors in their development and first steps towards performing and competing.

We are proud to announce the Pole Passion Grading system to all our students (and instructors alike), incorporating the system throughout our national network of professional instructors and licensees and in all our weekly student training sessions, which will enable students to gain a certification of their achievements in a structured manner.

ASK your instructor for the grading moves and syllabus – Register through your instructor or the office (theteam pre registration is essential.



How to register

1. Simply ask your instructor in class, for a copy of the grading system level you are currently working on, starting at Level 1 and progressing to Level 6. Find out the moves that need to be incorporated into your routine grading performance.

2. Select your music – Please email it on mp3 mp4 only format to
email : theteam@passion-fitness. com no later than 7 days before the grading date.
Please speak with your instructor for guidance and it is important that you show your completed routine to your instructor BEFORE the day of the grading – PLEASE NOTE: Your routine must not contain a move or trick higher than your grading level.

3. Create your routine, either working with your instructor or creating your own (make sure the length of your routine (music) is the correct time for your grade (see below).

4. Payment – the grading cost is £30 per level, per participant and you will receive
Professional certificate for you to frame for your wall
Professional on line badge certificate, for your social media sites
Goodie bag, contents will vary from grading to grading
The grading is a place where students can show off their skills to family and friends without the fear of being judged in a professional fitness environment. For many of our students, level 1 is their first opportunity to showcase their practised skills of tricks, spins, transitions, poses and floor work combining them into a routine set to music of their choice.

Gradings take place 3 to 4 times per year.

NEXT DATE - Pole Passion Grading
Friends and family welcome


Booking on a first come first served basis, spaces are secured on payment online or to your instructor.
