    Anyone ever taken any classes?

    Not the stripper kind the workout fitness kind.

    Apparently it's really effective after you have the baby to get everything toned back up because it works pretty much all of your muscles.

    I wanna take it up when babys born but I'm a total wuss :dohh: :rofl:

    I think pole dancing classes are becoming more and more popular now. I haven't done it myself and wouldn't have the guts but it is a really effective exercise, gives a real tough workout.

    :thumbup: it definitely works muscles that you didnt know could be worked. I've not done it since having LO, but you can certainly feel it working. Be prepared to struggle with steps/sitting/standing/basically anything the day after your first class though :lol: As for costs, I used to pay £8 per class (each class was hour and half long), although most instructors want you to pay up front for a course. So many people book spaces but don't turn up, which is a loss for the intructor, which is why they do that. I was lucky that my instructor didnt do that though coz there were a couple of weeks I couldnt go due to injury, and then I got pregnant and had to stop.

    And don't be shy. If you are shy and timid about it you wont benefit from it. Just go for it. You've got nothing to lose :thumbup:

    I think I'm definately gonna look into it now when babies born..I think I'd rather go on my own to begin with though then if I make a total tit of myself I won't have someone I know there bringing it up for the next 5 years :rofl:

    I've never seen any advertised locally though so I don't even know where to begin to look!
