From pound to pilates, the next fitness trend that should be on your radar is pole fitness. Beyond an art form, pole dancing is an exercise—an exercise that’s been observed to have a positive effect on mental well-being and physical health by researchers. This is because pole dancing is a whole-body workout that promotes strength, flexibility, and coordination. Pole fitness, on the other hand, is not so far removed from the concept. Pole fitness classes emphasize the fitness aspect of the art form, where you focus more on bodyweight training. If we’ve convinced you to try out this workout for yourself, look to these studios in Metro Manila. All of them offer beginner-friendly pole fitness classes and other related group exercises and dances available to all levels.
