Pole Fitness

POLE FITNESS is an excellent way to build full-body strength. We offer classes in beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. We also offer two stylized dance classes that focus on choreography and sensual movement. All of our classes begin with a warm-up for full-body strengthening and flexibility. Students spend the remainder of class learning pole tricks individually tailored to each student’s level of experience. Whether you are a seasoned poler or you just want to try something new, we have a class to fit your level.

Intro to pole

Intro to pole is for anybody who is new to pole fitness. In this class we will cover the foundations to pole fitness including basic movements around the pole, pole sits, beginner spins, and strength conditioning for climbs. This class is perfect for first timers or anybody wanting to focus on the fundamentals of pole fitness.

Pole Beginner Level 1

Beginner level 1 classes place additional emphasis on strength and flexibility conditioning to help you gain the strength needed for basic pole spins and tricks. Level 1 focuses on basic climbs, spins, and beginner combos.

Pole Beginner Level 2

Beginner level 2 focuses on building upon the basics as well as executing techniques and mastering control on the spinning pole, basic inversions, and building your strength to prepare you for intermediate level challenges. It is recommended that you are able to climb the pole and have a strong basic tuck before moving on to level 2 classes.

Advanced pole tricks

It is stongly recommended that you are able to invert and hold basic inverted tricks before moving to an advanced level class.

Low Flow & Basework

Low flow and basework focuses on tricks and transitions around the pole and on the floor. This class will focus on conditioning to make low flow moves look graceful and effortless whether you are wearing heels or dancing barefoot. Each class will work on a short combo that can be used for either exotic or contemporary pole. This class is suitable for all levels, although some experience is recommended.

Contemporary Choreo (All Levels)
Contemporary choreo will combine dance and pole tricks together to perform a more lyrical style of dance. This is perfect for those who want to dance without exploring the more sensual side of pole. The choreography will be broken down piece by piece, allowing time to practice each spin or trick. At the end of class we will dance the choreography together.
 
It is highly recommended that you take at least one beginner technique class to become familiar with basic spins and movements.
Exotic Choreo (All Levels)

In exotic, emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of Russian-style and American-style exotic pole dance. You’ll learn a short choreo that encompasses various styles of exotic including tricks on the pole, basework, floorwork, and legwaves.

This class is suitable for all levels. Heels and kneepads are recommended.

Liquid Motion®
In a Liquid Motion® class, we will use dance theory, natural organic movement and the Liquid Motion techniques, and fundamentals to build a proper foundation for floor work. Students will be lead through a 15-20 min full body warm up involving cardiovascular work, full body conditioning, and mobility exercises. The bulk of the class will take you through intricate floor flows and across the floor drills. The class will end with time for each student to explore their new found skills, and then a proper cool down and recovery to close out the Liquid Motion experience. This class is suitable for all levels with modifications to fit each student’s level.
 
  • Covered knees are required. Leg warmers are okay, but knee pads are ideal.
  • Arms and legs should be covered with something fitted and that will not stick to the floor, you can wear booty shorts underneath if you like.
  • Layers and socks are recommended.

Janice

Janice’s pole style is focused on strength and tricks. She started doing pole 3 years ago in April of 2014 and has been teaching since 2016. She started pole about six months after she lost her eight-year-old son due to complications from cerebral palsy. It was the start of the healing process for her. After spending months in bed, unable to function, she decided to try pole dance. It was the first hour in six months that she was not lost in grief; she had to focus so hard on what she was doing and couldn’t think about her loss. Little by little, pole strengthened her physically and mentally. She hopes to give her students that same sense of empowerment, confidence, and an inner strength that will carry people through hard times.

Outside of Be Fitness, Janice loves to run and travel. She has participated in a few triathlons and marathons. She also loves to spend time with her husband and beautiful children.

Erin

Erin doesn’t like to label her pole style but, if she had to, she’d call it sassy — a little too awkward to say it’s sexy, but her playful/flirty side definitely comes through. She tends to incorporate more strength based tricks, but she’s also been working on adding more fluidity to her movements.

Erin believes that exercise should be FUN and she likes to bring that energy to her classes. We each have our own unique abilities and strengths and she tries to nourish that in her students. She hopes that her students leave class feeling empowered to pursue their goals on and off the pole.

Erin has been a pole student since 2013 and started teaching pole in May of 2017. She is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and has specialty certifications in FXP Hula Hoop and POUND, which she has been teaching since 2015. Erin started her fitness journey by taking Zumba classes. She had read research studies suggesting that physical activity can be therapeutic and wanted something to help her deal with some of the emotional baggage that came with her divorce. After about a year of taking Zumba, she learned about pole fitness and was instantly attracted to it because it was so different from anything else she she would normally do. Pole has emboldened her to step outside of her comfort zone so that she can continue to evolve and grow as a person.

Tori

Tori has been dancing for 22 years and is thrilled to be working with Be Fitness. She has trained in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern, Contemporary, Hip Hop, and Musical Theater. Tori has a BA degree in Dance from Slippery Rock University and is currently teaching and performing all over the Cleveland area. Tori started her pole journey at Be Fitness in 2015 and has loved combining her classical dance training with this amazing and unique art form.

One of the things Tori loves most about dance and pole is that they allow a freedom of expression through movement when words aren’t quite right. She wants her students to feel like they can express themselves and move through a sense of poise and grace while still building technical skills that can be used in all dance forms.

Heather

Heather took her first pole class on a whim with a Groupon in 2015, but didn’t get hooked for good until an unlimited month at the end of 2017, when she really got an opportunity to see all that Be had to offer. As an AFAA-Certified bootcamp and cardio hip hop instructor, pole was a welcome combination of strength training and artistry. She loves that pole has so many aspects that there’s no end to what you can do and loves how supportive the Be family is of everyone’s accomplishments, big and small.
