5 Hot Workouts to Try

3. Pole FitnessWhat once was only found in seedy strip clubs, the pole has made a new name for itself. In fact, mention a strip club around die-hard pole fitness fans and you may be booted from class. Pole fitness combines cardio and strength training for the ultimate workout, but more than that, it’s verging on sport. So much so that pros are urging it to be included in the Olympics. You don’t have to be an athlete to get a great workout, though. You will be amazed at the muscle burn you feel trying to master spins, turns, lifts and poses. Most importantly, it’s a blast.

What to expect: After warming up, you will move on to the pole to learn techniques. Where most fitness classes are designed as a workout first and foremost, pole fitness classes are designed to teach you the art of pole dancing—the amazing workout is just a happy bonus. Class ends with a cool down that will leave you limber and relaxed. Classes are usually given in a supportive and encouraging environment that will improve your fitness, strength, rhythm and confidence.

What you’ll need: A pole and a saucy attitude.

Where to find it: Search for pole fitness classes in your area, or for more privacy, try Flirty Girl Fitness, an at-home DVD version.
