The gym isn’t everyone’s scene – just too much grinding of teeth and too many maniacal expressions and exercise machines for some people’s taste. Today’s Groupon is a workout of quite a different nature: a beginner’s pole dancing class at Drop Zone for R20.
Pole dancing is one of those things that suddenly pops up on every second talk show. If you’re a chic for a challenge, this Groupon has got your name written all over it. It’s the perfect opportunity to let loose and give this daringly crazy but tempting workout a shot. But fear not – no clothes will fly around the room, it’s all in good taste. Chances are your mother won’t be all too proud so best buy her a Groupon so she can come along and give it a try for herself.
Fitness should be fun, according to Drop Zone’s skilled pole dancing instructor. According to this professional there simply is no better way to unwind than to wind your body around a metal pole. What was once perceived as somewhat vulgar and featured on the list of ‘things-we-do-not-speak-of’, pole dancing has become an acknowledged sport practiced by many a famous Hollywood actress, fitness fanatic and grandmother. Though it may be sexy and seductive, don’t be fooled – it is very much a workout and cosmic forces predict you might be a little stiff in the morning.
For survivors of the beginner’s class, Tuesday night will no longer be the nothing night dumped in between Manic Monday and Wacky Wednesday. Teaser Tuesdays feature the class’ top achievers strutting their stuff in the Drop Zone pole dancing competition. Best stock up on a Groupon or two to be sure you don’t miss a step, twist or back arch.
