STRIP AEROBICS


 Girls. We have a gift. Our gift in the womanhood we embrace.

We celebrate our femininity by caring about our health

While finally, whether private or in class, and having los of fun.

 

No need to say it, it is receptive, valid and normal.  That is to feel silly at the thought of you stripping.

Girls, perfection is not an indication of where you are meant to be headed versus where you are standing right now. We are here to explore strip aerobics for those not aware of the growing crazed workout.

A workout that even if you do alone, is rewarding in ways a woman will truly be amazed with. Amazed at the fun and challenge it can offer.

Don’t take my word for it but do trust it.

Though not a prior I danced in many forms, most of my life. Grace, rhythm and timing were a trait that always came naturally, as mannerism for me. I believe this to be true all because of my passion in rhythm.

I published a similar hub to this a year and half ago. At that time I continued to love my 20 minutes to hour of private learning and complete lack of inhibition. Alternatively, dance fun daily. I say fun for me personally because I have always been driven by audio elements and not visual.

I suppose an example to give that may seem odd is the sound of a turning signal inside a car. That rhythm can change my mood or instantly have me rhyming, it cannot keep me from tapping different beat counts to challenge it, and I love that it never misses a click and is the perfect tempo for anyone with ADD and finds it impossible to sit still in the car which is the hardest place in the world for me to sit still.

My point is I was, despite my past always drawn to a beat. Music clearly defines me, simply put. I despise exercise but can dance until I literally drop, then start again. These are just a few reason why I loved strip aerobics. But the straw… It made me feel more feminine, sexual, like a woman, sexy, coordinated, attractive, fit, talented, challenged and ‘naughty’ to name a few things

Too eager to show my partner my proud continued progression constantly [poor dude]. Only rule I had was he was never allowed to do the pole or I would hurt him then leave him. I caught him once trying to spin just on the downfall, and well, those who know me, yep, pee, l

The Stripping Craze

Strippers are no doubt, in great shape. They have to be for their profession. Whether using a pole or not, these girls know about exercise.

The past few years’ strip aerobics has exploded in popularity.

Cardio Strip Aerobics is an energetic and exotic way to stay in shape.

It’s totally legitimate and the hottest new workout trend.

Thanks also to Carmen Electra’s DVD. An instructional striptease aerobics fitness videos are available. Who wouldn’t want to look like her? And now a sequel DVD. Check it out if you prefer to do this in the privacy of your home. There are benefits of starting out in a group setting. Remember, you can’t get personal advice or professional feedback on your own. Also doing the same thing repeatedly can get boring. To combat workout boredom in and out of the bedroom I suggest you alternate between many available DVDs.

Practice is everything

When I can, I use stripping techniques as a form as my aerobic workout. It’s very difficult, but slowly I am building up my strength, as I am very weak especially in the arms.

If, I hope, you choose to just try this even once, be prepared for a major workout. Be patient, it takes time but your coordination will come together quicker than you would think.

I suggest you join a class for beginners to start in your area. You will also make new friends and everyone has fun laughing at himself or herself and then magically, it’s interesting to share the natural progression as the class builds, in techniques.

Once the sole domain of strip clubs in urban neighborhoods, pole dancing is arguably the fastest growing fitness exercise around the world, and Durango visionary Eve Presser has outfitted Eden Pole Dance Fitness Studio with six poles, mirrored walls, a slick floor and dozens of 6-inch platform heels. She is also filling classes as fast as she can answer the phone.

“This is not stripper training,” Presser says strongly. “Pole dancing is aerobic as well as anaerobic exercise for women of every size and shape, women who want to get in shape or stay in shape and feel feminine and sexy in the process.”

The studio makes perfect sense in the evolution of the modern woman, as evidenced by a volunteer class of Snow down Follies dancers assembled for this article. As the women learned a few beginning foundation moves, hips began to swing, shoulders curved suggestively, and there was a palpable air of sensual enjoyment in the room.

Presser is a certified pole dance instructor working through requirements for advanced qualifications that will follow as her student’s progress. Right now, she’s offering basic pole orientation, enough to take the beginner to levels of body movement only previously dreamed of.

“I’m teaching three foundation moves right now, some with nine to 14 layers,” Presser says enthusiastically. “The more proficient they get in foundation moves, the more successful they will be in learning variations, which we call ‘tricks.’ We have some fun, have some giggles, and everyone walks out of class sweaty, tired and happy about their bodies.”

Participants in Eve Presser’s basic pole dancing class learn moves, or “tricks.” Using the resistance of the body, pole dancing is said to work the core, upper body and legs while improving flexibility, balance and posture. /Photo by David Halter man

Pole dancing is currently the talk of the fitness industry. One of the movement’s leaders is actress Sheila Kelley who said she “discovered” her sensual power and a fit body while researching and preparing for a role in the film, “Dancing at the Blue Iguana.”

Kelley says her life was changed forever through teaching the “S Factor” – her patented pole dance program named for the natural curve of the female body. “I watched other women experience similar dramatic changes in their lives simply by learning to move in this way,” she said. “Women don’t have to be afraid of their bodies or the way their bodies naturally want to move.”

Kelley has appeared and demonstrated pole dance exercise six times on Oprah as well as 48 Hours, The View, Dancing with the Stars, Prime time Live, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Late Night With Conan O’Brien and The O’Reilly Factor.

Pole dancing devotees can be found in the ranks of Lindsay Loran, Paris Hilton, Carmen Electra, Angelina Jolie, Kate Moss, Pamela Anderson and Demi Moore, and all of the actresses attribute their celebrity bodies to pole dancing.

“Pole dancing works the muscles of the arm, shoulder and torso, and strengthens the thighs, the buttocks and enhances stability, balance, flexibility and posture,” reports Presser. “Take away all the judgments about being pretty or sexy; this is for the average Jane, the mom, the office worker, and all the way up to the competitive athlete.”

Presser continues, “What I hope is for women to add a pole dancing workout one day a week to their regular exercise schedule. It will improve all other activities and develop a woman’s unique sense of body awareness and natural movement.”

Look at the shape this mother of two is in. Nevertheless, what I love besides her obvious daily dedication to strip aerobics is her pride when she nails a spot.

The funniest thing just happened. I was going to caption this video modestly mentioning it was I, sure I’d be pulling it off.

However, I am laughing so hard I can barely spell. OMG if you only know how shy I truly am, you would laugh too. Seriously though I hate ‘erg’ naked. Even alone!  So getting past this seemingly impossible fear we the girls in the aerobics class think are so unique, the more we use our own ‘seemingly’ flaws, and the more we learn to let gooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!

DID I JUST OPENLY ADMIT TO THE WORLD; AND, AM REPEATING SO, IN UPPER CASE, THAT I EVEN HATE BEING NAKED ALONE?   Oh hope not.

Don’t run out until you’re sure and have a poll installed. Think of alternatives around you or keep doing ground/chair work; The Answer you need is in the dance

Getting Started

DON’T FEAR NUDITY!

Besides very few clubs ask members to actually disrobe down to their Cork Stripper Heels.

  • Focus on working your body and loving it for what you have.
  • When choosing a class, stop and watch at least one and make sure your comfortable with the layout.
  • Talk to the CERTIFIED instructor and get a feel for his teaching objectives
  • Inquire or observe it is or isn’t a strip down class and choose which you prefer
  • Remember it is a commitment of a number of times per week to get the desired results your going there for
  • So get a copy of the class schedule and see what you can maintain-realistically-and what rotation the classes offer i.e.; pole vs. floor or chair work
  • I suggest you start with floor exercises and work your way up to the chair and props. The pole requires the most strength and should be left for last
  • Check if the class is Co-Ed or not depending on your preference.

The Effect on your Self Esteem

Strip Aerobics or Cardio Strip Aerobics’ goal is to shed self-consciousness, not your clothing.

As your confidence builds and you practice in your own private setting, it’s amazing how much better you feel about yourself. You feel sexier, firmer, stronger and again, more confident. It inspires you to show your partner, who in turn will be responsive. It improves your sex life for sure.

Mostly aerobic stripping gave me a sense of freedom that could only come within. A confidence I never had. Shy to not so shy. 🙂

Here’s what other women have described:

  • It boosts your confidence, endurance, strength and flexibility
  • Striptease like a pro while getting a pro workout
  • It’s aerobics that make you feel good about your body
  • Sensual fitness for women’s aerobics
  • It’s a fun dance aerobic workout which combines some basic striptease moves and

Practice with a close friend, I promise the laughter will be continual

Pole

Pole dancing uses the body itself as natural resistance, and the exercise can easily cause injury if the foundation moves aren’t firmly established before other tricks are added. Some of the advanced tricks on the pole have seductive names such as The Fireman’s Spin, The Flamingo,

The Butterfly Trick, The Crouch Spin Move, The Inverted Snake Trick and the Headstand Trick.

Moreover, pole dancing has been described as “a beautifully progressive form of exercise, with many moves that absolute beginners can master quickly, right up to demanding poses that challenge even experienced dancers

Like other exercise, pole dancing also decreases blood pressure and cholesterol, increases bone density, reduces risk of cardiovascular disease, releases the body’s endorphins to produce a natural high and can burn 250 calories in each 45-minute session.

As pole dancing is moving from the strip club to the health club, its appeal is epidemic

Studios can be found in every major city in the U.S., Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, Japan, South America, and an Avant Gard group even on the subways, signposts and lamp poles of New York City is practicing it.

In addition to Presser’s classes, she hosts baccalaureate parties (while the bachelors are off getting drunk in a strip club), and sells portable poles and spike heels for home use.

I wanted to bring you this craze, explaining why and ask would you do it knowing, what your about to learn?

Fitness Clubs across the Nation have incorporated Strip aerobics into their exercise programs. It shouldn’t be hard to find a club near you.

If you Google strip aerobics you’ll find 66,100 results.

When I can, I use stripping techniques as a form as my aerobic workout. It’s very difficult, but slowly I am building up my strength, as I am very weak especially in the arms.

If, I hope, you choose to just try this even once, be prepared for a major workout. Be patient, it takes time but your coordination will come together quicker than you would think.

I suggest you join a class for beginners to start in your area. You will also make new friends and everyone has fun laughing at himself or herself and then magically, it’s interesting to share the natural progression as the class builds, in techniques.

Ten Examples

Here are ten very popular club songs you could start putting on CD for when you are working out. Songs/links that are favorites’ for professional club dancing

Try a few of these, we all differ in tastes of music, but try some and take notice to how a particular makes you feel and then in turn, creates a natural flow in body movement; or use you or your mates favorites

  1. Bob Seger, Mainstreet-under no circumstances can you leave this out-and even start stretching to it-game on I give you my word-click it to repeat- OK? OK? OK.
  2. Audio slave; Shadow of the Sun

NOT MY HUB NEXT

Pole Dancing for Exercise or Sex will explore pole dancing as an exercise and look at whether it is truly a fitness exercise or just a form of an erotically long foreplay for sex. As you may know pole dancing is no longer just for strip clubs and private gentleman’s clubs. Over the past ten years, many women have started to opt to use this art of dancing within their homes as a fitness regimen. Pole dancing exercise is a combination of highly physical acrobatic moves and erotic dancing on a stripper pole.

Pole dancing exercise moves typically include climbing, hanging, spinning, swinging, and striking sexy poses on or around the pole. Working with a stripper pole tones the upper body, legs, and core. Tara Karina the young lady dancing on the below video was trained by Venda who teaches lessons online; you can reach her info at this link – StudioVeena.com. You can also find a link to more of Tara’s YouTube videos of her dancing below in the “comments” section.

Getting Started

Pole dancing has really become popular within the U.S. and Britain. Therefore, if you’re ready to get started, I would suggest that you do not run out and purchase a pole for your home prior to taking some classes first. By investing in pole dancing exercise classes first you can learn if you are up to the task of getting physical fit enough to maintain your weight on a pole. Obviously, whether you are doing pole dancing for exercise or sex, you will need to develop certain muscles in order to perform the task.

Another reason I suggest finding a class first, is that you can try pole dancing at home, however, this will require you to invest in a good stripper pole. Removable in-home stripper poles will run between $200 and $500. A few classes to ensure that this is a fitness routine that you like will cost a lot less. Then you will need to invest in a couple of workout DVDs or perhaps try to follow an online course. As you can see also by the video it is important to ensure that your pole is properly installed and strong enough to sustain your weight.

http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Idiots-Exotic-Dancing-Illustrated/dp/1592575609%3FSubscriptionId%3D14H876SFAKFS0EHBYQ02%26tag%3Dmongliblo-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3D1592575609

Depending on your instructor, exercise gear may consist of high heels for strutting around the room, hot pants in order for your legs to remain bare in order to be able to grip the pole with your thighs. Of course, if you are a little shy and do not feel comfortable initially working out this way then you can select clothing that you can slip on and off as necessary.

How to Choose a Pole

Well, you guessed it just like other poles all stripper poles are not created equal. In some instances size does matter. You must first decide if you want a pole that remains stationary in one room or do you want one that can be taken down and stored in between uses. So your choice will be a stationary stripper pole sometimes termed a permanent pole because it screws into the ceiling. The second choice is a removable stripper pole, which is semi-permanent and is connected to the ceiling by tension. Thirdly, there is the podium stripper pole that does not fit from the floor to the ceiling, but is usually attached to a base.

I would suggest that you research the type of pole you require, and consult with an instructor or a licensed expert prior to making a purchase that later could hurt a love one if it falls. However, here’s what I have learned. The more expensive poles are said to grip better, static poles are not suppose to move while you are moving, and spinning poles are meant to spin with you. In addition, here is a website that offered stripper pole reviews.

Men can do it also…

Benefits of Pole Dancing

Fitness benefits are:

  • Burns lots of calories
  • Cardio vascular exercise
  • Tone your abs
  • Define your arms and shoulders
  • Tone Legs
  • Makes you more flexible
  • Teaches you to Dance
  • Builds confidence and self- esteem
  • You will be the envy of EVERYONE
  • It’s so enjoyable and fun!!

I think that everyone will agree that holding your body horizontal to a pole with just your abs will require strength training to improve your core and burn a lot of calories. With continued practice participants of pole dancing are seeing increases in upper body strength and endurance. Legs will become more agile as abs become stronger from making spins and moves that in the beginning you could not do. Even if you did not have good upper body strength in the beginning you will develop the strength required while shedding pounds from the exercise.

A good cardio vascular exercise will get your heart pumping and make you sweat while you burn energy. Amir Dante states, “Pole dancing is a great way to improve your stamina, over time you will improve your skills and be able to hold your body weight, complete more difficult and testing moves and spins and you will feel less tired and achy the more you do.” In addition, as with any exercise program as individual progresses his or her self-esteem builds.

Yes, that’s right ladies and gentlemen your stud muffins can join you on the pole. Ladies I’m sure you will agree that if you are into pole dancing for your man that it would be nice to see him develop some upper body strength and perhaps perform an erotic dance for you every once in a while.

Getting to the Sex

O.k. while some people might have the mindset that pole dancing is something that goes on in clubs and nice girls don’t do such things. I think within this hub there is enough information to prove that this is a great means of exercise and can definitely assist in strength and stamina fitness.

While it appears to be a very great fun way to keep fit: there is nothing wrong with spicing up the bedroom. If you and your partner want to get a little naughty, put on your hottest outfit that your partner loves; put on your favorite “in the mood music; grab your pole (the dancing pole that is); add a little grinding and seductively sliding around the pole and ooh la la…

An exotic pole dance has been deemed entertaining and erotic as the dancer performs a burlesque dance to his or her on lookers. The dancer may choose to perform a strip tease during the dance. Obviously this form of entertainment and frisky prowl will tease, tempt, tantalize, and torment leaving its participants sexually aroused.

After improving upper body strength, agility of the legs and increasing stamina from your pole dancing will contribute to a better sex life. A stripper pole in the privacy of one’s own home can add to a couple’s imagination while providing a “new toy” per say to express your sensual side and create interest and excitement in the bedroom. So ladies and gentlemen, or should I say diva vixens and stud muffins put up your stripper dancing poles for exercising and or sex.

Conclusion

According to Tracey Lloyd, “There are 3 main styles when it comes to learning the art of pole. These consist of exotic dance, empowerment and pole fitness.” Tracey Lloyd owns a pole dancing supplies website http://www.isntshepretty.co.uk offering sexy lingerie, erotic outfits, and daring club wear.

Both men and women are enjoying the benefits gained from pole dancing. One article that I read made mention that the stripper pole was no longer just for young women only; that men and women beyond their 30’s are exploring pole dancing as a means of getting in shape while having fun. In conclusion pole dancing is for exercise and or sex it is an individual decision.
