Gravity is a new trampoline park that opened up in Edinburgh recently and as someone who's always looking for a way to burn calories without having to go to the gym I signed up straight away.
First I calculated my BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) which is the amount of calories my body burns by just doing it's daily functions.
In the 9 months that I've been pole dancing I've picked up loads of words and terms that make lots of sense to those in the pole word but pole muggles wouldn't have a clue.
I signed up for a six week beginners pole fitness class. This is what happened.
I've been pole dancing for about 8 months and in that time my self confidence has grown immensely. The attitudes and environment surrounding pole are so positive and encouraging that after one class you'll leave thinking you can do anything! So when I booked into a two week course of trapeze and aerial silks I was ready to absolutely own it. Spoiler Alert - I absolutely did not own it.
