I must highly recommend this studio to anyone who is interested in pole dancing. It has been the only physical activity that has kept my interest for over six months now. I started with no dance experience and out of shape, and I can't stop pole dancing! Because of the nature of pole dance, there is an ongoing system of reward in learning a new move or skill, and then you build upon that skill to learn something else. It builds muscle, stamina, flexibility, confidence and positive self-image. Sarah is a very patient, knowledgeable and encouraging instructor who provides a variety of classes for different skill levels. Generally women are most self-conscious around other women and this simply isn't the case for me at Impulse. Everyone is positive, encouraging and friendly with no sense of competition. The ladies that go there range in age, body type and personality but all have a great attitude and are fun to be around. Class sizes are small, allowing for more feedback and a more personalized experience. I would recommend even the mildly curious try an intro class (there are occasional free ones) and keep an open mind!
I highly recommend Impulse Studios. I had preconceived notions about what to expect and was delightfully surprised to find an amazing group of normal women-instructors and students-and a new fitness routine that actually kept me interested. The students range in age, personality and body types, but I think its fair to say we all share the same benefits of a great workout, having fun and feeling more confident about oneself. If this interests you even the slightest I encourage you to try at least one class. There are even free introduction classes on occasion! The instructors are amazing and way better then any gym class. Plus the classes are small so you get personalized attention. And they are private so you don't have weirdos watching you like in classes you take at a gym. You'll laugh at yourself, feel proud of yourself and leave more confident and in better shape. I've lost over 20 lbs between diet and my classes at Impulse as my only workout. :) But best of all I love doing it and actually look forward to my workouts!
I have heard nothing but good things about this school! I am going to look into it for my son!
