Class Descriptions

          PoleFly™ Aerial Fitness offers classes for all fitness levels. None of our classes are weekly series, no waiting for the next cycle to start or worrying if you miss a class that you will fall behind. We understand that everyone progresses in their fitness journey at different paces, therefore our classes are designed to help you meet your unique individual goals. Instructors will keep classes fun and challenging while providing safe modifications so everyone can participant.

 

           **PLEASE note that Pole Fitness Classes, while at your own pace, are still a progression. Spend as much time as you need in each level, to

                                 learn all you can, and talk with your instructor when you are ready to advance to the next level. 

 FRIENDLY REMINDER

 NO LOTION the day of pole class, it makes the poles slippery and that's a safety concern ! 

Also, NO JEWERLY- We have a lockbox you can keep your  valuables in. Jewerly can get caught up in spins & inversion and also can scratch and damage the pole. 

 Intro to Pole is required for all students who are new to Pole Fitness. This class will teach you all the basic pole terminology. We will help you develop your unique pole walk and introduce you to beginner spins and some sassy floorwork. Even if you have gone to a Pole Party, we still require you take atleast one Intro to Pole class with us !

 

Work out pants and T-shirts can be worn for this class. 

Intro to Aerials is required for all students who are new to Aerial Silks & Lyra. This class will teach you proper engagement and strength training drills to get your body prepped for the wonderful world of floating in the air.

We will use both silks & Lyra to learn about aerial fitness and open your eyes to what you will need to know to continue your Aerial journey. After Intro, you can then decide to just take Lyra Fundamentals, just silk fundamentals or if you loved both, then take both classes!
