HOW TO: Treat a Muscle Injury

Although most of the time this happens outside of class, and at pole we have lots of great practices and injury prevention techniques in place, every once in a while someone may experience an ouchie.

Even if we can deadlift and suspend our entire body sideways, aerially via pole – shockingly we are not super human after all, and injuries happen to the best of us.

Muscle soreness is pretty standard and honestly, if you don’t feel beasted after a good pole session then did you even work out?
But torn muscles is more serious and painful, and needs to be treated with care. Continue reading “HOW TO: Treat a Muscle Injury”

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”

First Trimester

Intro to ‘My Pregnancy & Pole Dance Diary’

Firstly I would like to point out that I am not a Doctor, or of the medical profession. This is not a medical journal and in this diary I am in no way recommending that other women (whether they do or do not pole) continue their activities in the way that I have.

I simply want to share my pregnancy experiences in an honest blog/diary as reference for other possible pregnant women – who pole dance. Continue reading “First Trimester”

Second Trimester

Weeks 13-16 – The weeks ‘Peanut’ became REAL

So after quite a miserable start to being newly pregnant, this trimester was the bit I was looking forward to the most….it’s known as ‘The Honeymoon Period’ because you are still you, not too visibly heavy yet, you can still do all the things you normally would without the sickness or aching, and you get to see your baby for the first time with your 12 week scan, or ‘The Dating Scan’.
I was told to drink loads of fluids ready for the scan – this pushes the baby higher up so they can get a good shot. I was expecting to see a chicken nugget shaped object with not much character or detail……. MAN was I pleased with this ……. Continue reading “Second Trimester”

Third Trimester

Weeks 28-31 – Prepare for Battle!

These weeks felt like a constant battle plan, prepare, prepare, prepare! Now that I knew I had been a bit ambitious to think that I would be able to teach for another 10 weeks (yeah right!), I decided to chop it down to just the 6 weeks. That in mind, I finally had a maternity leave date – or as near as, so I spent most of my life in these weeks applying for various benefits and chasing the applications through. Also, I had to make sure all the current students had a plan for their lesson structure too – make sure I helped them perfect what they were currently working on, and give them a load more stuff to work on whilst I would be away. I spent a lot of time sat on my arse, writing articles for the site for my girls to use whilst I was off. They turned out really nice, you can see them HERE. Continue reading “Third Trimester”
