Pole Fitness Society
DMU Pole Fitness is an evergrowing society offering classes for those interested in a unique fitness experience for all levels! Even if you don't want to do Pole Fitness classes, we offer socials every Wednesday and you can become a DMU Pole Fitness Social Member! DMU Pole Fitness was approved on the 22nd September 2014 and since then we've had over 300 members! As a society we've had many amazing classes, socials, been on Tour, taken part in Charity events and so much more!
Pole Fitness is all about improving and building your core strength, co-ordination and confidence; all whilst having a lot of fun. The best thing about Pole Fitness is that at every level there are achievable targets providing motivation and regular incentives. It's great to make friends, to encourage each other and to get FIT! It works your core like a no other, builds both strength AND confidence and is for ALL shapes, sizes and abilities! No experience required to join!
So what do you get as a member?...
Discounted Pole Classes!
DMU Pole Fitness partner up with Vertical Fitness Studio to provide our Pole Fitness classes. Vertical Fitness is a studio with a team of 9 instructors run by Kerry Blunt who has 10 years of Pole Fitness experience. There will be a minimum of 2 instructors per class so everyone can get valued time with an instructor.
All DMU Only class bookings are done through the DMU Pole Fitness Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/532207193577791/. These classes are open to DMU Students only. All other classes are open to DMU Students and students of Vertical Fitness, so if you have a friend that is not a DMU Student you can still go together. You can book on to these via Vertical Fitness Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/164880443655086/. Both pages will give you regular updates on availability. If anyone does not have facebook please contact Kerry on 07961926172 or email email@example.com to book on to a class.
If you book on to a class and cannot attend please cancel NO LATER than 12:00pm on the day of the class so someone can go in your place, please be aware that if you do not cancel before this time you may still be charged.
All Beginner classes, DMU Only and Mixed Ability classes can be used as taster sessions throughout the year. You book on via the process above and pay a one off £6 fee for the class. You can then gain a feel for it and see if you wish to continue. These are a great opportunity to 'try before you buy' so please take full advantage.
All payment is currently done at the studio when you come to a class with either cash or card. All sessions are at a discounted price of £6, as oppose to £7.50-£10.00 which are normal admission prices. If you like Pole and wish to continue then you pay for a block of 6 classes for £30 and can use these up until the 31st March 2020 (end of the financial year). You can also book termly, by paying £55 for 12 classes. All you will need to do is book on and bring your loyalty card to the session so Kerry and her team know that you have paid.
You do not need a DMU Pole Fitness Membership to come to a taster session. However, if you wish to continue you will need to purchase a membership off the DSU website: https://www.demontfortsu.com/soc/DMUPoleFitness/. Membership is £10 for the whole year. Once membership is paid you will get a set of vouchers from Kerry at classes which show you have paid and are eligible for the discounted prices.

Every Wednesday we go out with all the other DMU Societies on Social. This is a great way to meet new people from all societies and have a great time. The first few weeks or so we will meet you all outside the Foodhall on campus at 7:30pm to take you to Locker Room for 7:45pm (this will be posted on the facebook group so make sure you click the link above!), Once there, we play some games and have a bit of fun and a boogie until we leave for Fat Cats at 10pm to meet up with all the other societies. At midnight we all move to De Montfort Student Union where we all finish off the night together! All societies most weeks do fancy dress with loads of fun themes - we are no exception but we keep it simple and cheap! If you come to socials regularly and have purchased your membership, you will also get an opportunity to get a Pole Fitness Bow (you may have seen these worn by other members throughout Freshers week) and an optional Society hoodie for an additional cost. Wednesday's are always a great night out and definitely not to be missed. All the details about socials are posted weekly on our Facebook page, if you do not have facebook please email us or send us a DM on instagram and our Social Secretary will get in touch and give you all the details.
Don't feel pressured to join in with the drinking if you're not a big fan, were very inclusive and respect all members regardless!
You can purchase your membership on this website for £10 for the entire year, the earlier this is bought the better as you will receive your DMU pole fitness membership so you can start getting discounted classes as soon as possible! This includes all your insurance, discounted pole classes, socials every Wednesday, varsity events, the opportunity to go on Tour, access to other events like stretch classes etc, and the chance to get involved with some charity events we run throughout the year. (By volunteering with us at these events you can log volunteering hours with DSU which will be printed on your HEAR once you have your degree, also it will also look great on your CV).
PLEASE NOTE - you can get involved with this society at any point in the year. NEVER think it is too late to join our society, everyone is very welcome!!! If you would like to join us but have many questions then feel free to email us at any point on firstname.lastname@example.org - We can then send you out our welcome email with a great deal of information regarding classes, socials, Tour and any other upcoming events we have planned.
