new fun fitness for women (pole fitness and more) in Zurich

just discovered this place (it's a gym/dance school, so website is office friendly!) and very happy to finally see pole fitness in Switzerland!

Ok, I've always found the idea fun and believe that this is much more interesting than your traditional workout in a gym. Plus, you burn a lot more calories this way anyway. It's been popular in the states for a while, but still mostly in big cities only, so unfortunately, I didn't have the chance to become a "regular" when I lived there. However, I've had a lesson while in Vegas and it was tons of fun. All the girls really enjoyed it, lots of laughs.

So... I noticed that they offer both PoleFitness and Aerial Circle classes. Never done Aerial Circle but just feel like this might be more fun and provide more possibilities than a single pole. Contacted the school already and then confirmed that the teacher speaks English so minimal German on my side is not a problem

Now, any other EF ladies interested in joining?

Re: new fun fitness for women (pole fitness and more) in Zurich

Do you have to look that fit when joining?
If yes, what's the point of doing this kind of fitness, because 5 kilos more and you simply can't do this kind of thing can you???

actually, as you'll be supporting your own weight, the heavier you are, the more of a workout it'll be

when we took the class in Vegas, the students ranged from skinny teenagers to plus-size older ladies. Everyone seemed to enjoy the class regardless. The instrutor we had, a former stripper, was by far the fittest person in class

Fun fitness for women should be in their bedrooms with their partners

yeah you bet.

besides, I absolutely don't see what the fuss is about this pole thing. it is so unerotic and more like something out of a circus.
hence, perfect for fun fitness. but no way I'm gonna torture myself like that. no way!!!

by Letzipark is the location with the most choices in Zurich...

They do have a studio in Aargau though (noticed that you're in Aargau?) - click here. The first time I heard about them was actually through either DeinDeal or Groupon (can't remember) when they were selling a deal for their studio in Aargau

Why am I not surprised about that one...

Their studio is between a tennis sock shop and a car tuner specializing on Polos and Corsas. (probably)
