I've heard that pole dancing is really good exercise. They advertise pole dancing classes and I even remember something called Flirty Girl Fitness where you could order your own pole for home 'workouts.' It doesn't look easy to me. Think about it, you have to haul your butt all the way up by shear brute strength. Then you have all of those flippy moves. It puts me in mind of that crazy rope you had to climb in gym class. I hated that rope!

I joke with our corporate engineers about installing a pole in the studio. They assure me they would be able to anchor it well enough that I wouldn't be able to rip it out of the ceiling. I don't believe them. J/S There IS a weight limit.

Either way, any time I'm having a bad day, I watch one of these and realize, it's not all that bad!
