Pole Fitness Society
DMU Pole Fitness is an evergrowing society offering classes for those interested in the sport or who want to try something new! Even if you don't want to do Pole Fitness, we offer socials every Wednesday and you can be a social member! DMU Pole Fitness was approved on the 22nd September 2014 and by the 22nd October had 90 members! Since then, we've had many amazing socials, been on Tour and 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 so that you have that motivation and regular incentive to look forward to.
It's great to make friends, to encourage each other, to get together 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?...
