Who Is Number Two?

At Candy & Chrome, we have a brilliant team delivering your pole classes each week.
There is somewhat of a hierarchy, but to be honest – absolutely everyone on the team is equally important and without which, we would not be able to be as awesome as we are.

For this article though, I want to explain a bit about the role of our very special people who are chosen to be ‘Number Two’. Continue reading “Who Is Number Two?”

10 Motivational Tips

To Keep Your ‘PoleJo’ Flowing

Pole is for life, not just for January!
I know that when you make your new year resolutions, you really do mean it.  I believe you.  You genuinely have the best of intentions.
But you’d be a superfreak if you naturally just kept them all for the whole year without hiccup.
The human body DOES NOT store motivation, so don’t dwell when you fall off the wagon – that’s inevitable and the odds are never in your favour when it comes to staying motivated by yourself.
That only way you fail is if you give up when you’re on a downer. It’s easy done.

So how to beat it? STAY MOTIVATED! Sounds simple enough but actually THAT’S the hardest part of all.
I’m no expert at this either, however I do have at least 10 good tips that could help you… Continue reading “10 Motivational Tips”

As usual, it’s an eclectic mix of:  A lil bit of Rock (Ok a lot of rock), a few things dancey, something a little balletic, something a little fancy footworky, all out head bangin’ and pole thrashin’, LazysexyGrungey, grind worthy, hair flickery, and it’s skin strokingly good.

Your Health Journal

Ladies – Your body is AMAZING! It really is! Wobbly bits n all.
It’s a clever machine that can store muscle memory, nutrients, information, memories and all kinds of wonderful things.

But one thing the body does not store is – MOTIVATION! So it’s no surprise that those new year resolutions go a bit wayward after just a few short weeks.
Most people struggle with motivation, and that’s normal – especially when it comes to pole.   And we all hit plateau every once in a while as well (but I’ll save that chat for another time).

At Candy & Chrome we do have one weapon to help combat this and help keep you motivated, which is – Your Health Journal. Continue reading “Your Health Journal”

PRODUCT REVIEW: The Back Nodger

This… had made a HUGE difference to my life!

 

RRP = £34.99
CHEAPEST ONLINE = £24.99
OUR PRICE = £24 (And this INCLUDES UK postage!)  BUY NOW

 

Today’s review is all about this amazing, if not a bit odd looking device – The Back Nodger!
OMG this thing is my latest obsession and has made a massive difference to my life!
(it’s not a sex toy either btw – but it might be as satisfying!).
Great for releasing stress tension in the neck & shoulders – whether you pole or not!
But if you do pole, the nodger will locate and destroy those naggy knots! (especially the ones that hide just under your shoulder blade!).
Get the ultimate ooohhh ahhhh feeling and claim your back back!

LATENESS …

‘How to’ – Be late for pole class & our policies on it all.

I came across this article the other day, which – via hilarious stick men drawings, explains the inner workings of what goes on inside the brain of a person who is chronically late (hands up me).

It got me thinking about lateness in general, how it affects pole, and our three basic rules about being all tardy. Continue reading “LATENESS …”

HOW TO: Treat a Pole Bruise

Bruises, Pole Kisses – come hand in hand with pole, most especially when your a total newbie.  I firmly believe that if you ain’t bruising, you ain’t doing it right!

And if you do get some good ones, then we should wear them like a badge of honor as they represent achievement.

But that’s not for everybody and some people just bruise like a peach, ending up looking a bit battered and unsightly.

So here are our top 5 ways to treat a Pole Bruise: Continue reading “HOW TO: Treat a Pole Bruise”

DIET: Eating to prevent bruising

Prevention is better than cure …

**Important** 
Before taking any new supplements or making new diet changes, you should always consult your GP and dispensing herbalist.  OBVS. 

Bruises, Pole Kisses – come hand in hand with pole, most especially when your a total newbie.

I firmly believe that if you ain’t bruising, you ain’t doing it right!  And if you do get some good un’s, then we should wear them like a badge of honor as they represent achievement.

But that’s not for everybody and some people just bruise like a peach, ending up looking a bit battered and unsightly.

This could be because you are deficient in Vitamin K, or C, and a simple diet change could make a huge difference here.  But of course – speak to your GP about that as – I’m no Doctor!

Alternatively, you could talk to your local dispensing herbalist.  If you live in or near Chester, we like the people at The Groves Herbalist shop in Hoole.  They’re cool.

Either way, it’s generally a good idea to get your vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients from a good, balanced diet – naturally, as diet plays a role in both the prevention and healing of bruises.

Here are 7 diet changes you can easily make help prevent pole bruises:
