Typical First Timer Questions
What do i wear?
Pole Class: We recommend form fitting work out clothes that allow for easy movement. You will be most comfortable in short shorts, a tank top and leg warmers, over the knee socks and/or knee pads. Platform shoes are optional but allowed in Pole Level 2 and up, and sometimes encouraged for specific classes.
Fly Gym / Aerial Fitness: We recommend form fitting work out clothes that allow for easy movement. Long/short sleeved t-shirt, leggings and socks are ideal.
How old do i have to be?
Participants must be 18 years of age to join our programs.
Do i need to be really fit to try it out?
Absolutely no! Anyone with a great attitude and willingness to try can join our programs. Everyone is a beginner to start and remember: “you don’t have to be great to start but you must start to be great”
I’m really uncoordinated, will i be able to keep up?
Our instructors are trained to take it nice and slow, making sure that you have lots of time and encouragement from the very beginning to get comfortable with our moves and techniques. Our series classes progress on a week to week basis and our optimizer classes are important little extras that will help your body with the necessary conditioning needed for desired progression and results such as flexibility, endurance and core strengthening.
This is really outside of my comfort zone, will i fit in?
One of the things we are most proud of at Bombshells is the diversity of women who form our student community and have adopted our culture. Great things don’t usually come from within our comfort zones anyways, right? Trust us when we say….you will be glad you did!
And remember….posture and attitude are everything! Your dress size doesn’t matter. If you have a great attitude and a willingness to try, then this is all you need to get started!
What else should i bring to class?
Water and a towel are normally all that is required but kneepads or legwarmers are strongly recommended.
Please remove jewelry – rings, watches, bracelets that can scratch the poles and potentially harm you as well. Please also have your hands free of lotions or moisturizers as this affect your grip with the pole and also makes them harder to keep clean. Keep your cell phones in your bags please.
Our studios are a fragrance free zone as many of our members are sensitive to strong perfumes and detergents. Please refrain from wearing perfume or using scented products prior to your class.
