Empower Fitness Studio – Pole Fitness

Hi I’m Emma and I am the owner of Empower Fitness Studio in Alford. The studio, now in it’s 12th year, was born from my own passion for pole dancing. Pole classes really are “fitness magic”, they don’t feel like exercise. It’s the feeling of dancing with a group of people that are there to have fun, without worrying you haven’t delivered your best, no judgement, no limitations, where you can be who you want to be.

Experiencing my body doing things that it previously hadn’t or couldn’t was amazing, it was a huge part of what made me fall in love with Pole Dancing. Pretty early into my Pole journey I discovered other forms of fitness, like kettlebell training, to help develop strength for pole dancing (and life!) and loved those too. I started teaching classes to share my love of Pole with other people and things just sort of snowballed from there.

At the studio we have a packed schedule every week offering a diverse range of classes to cater for all our members fitness needs. I personally teach Pole classes where I get to share that fitness magic. We practice lot of different movements including climbs, spins and trick. But don’t let the language intimidate you, the classes are really fun and very accessible, no matter what your fitness level or ability there is a place for you in Pole.

“I’d recommend pole fitness for people of any age. The classes cater for all levels of ability and is totally non judgemental 😊”

I also teach circuit classes once a week and stretch sessions, both of which are a great compliment to Pole or wonderful workouts in their own right.

Empower Fitness Studio is also home to some other wonderful instructors who share their love of Pole, Dance, Pilates, Kettercise and Yoga with the local community.

Who can join in?

Anyone can join our classes. We have a really broad range of ages, genders and abilities in all of our sessions and everybody feels at home.

With Pole, anyone aged 14+ is welcome to join our adult classes. We also run Kids Pole for children aged 8-13.

“I was 60 when I went to my first pole fit class at Empower and I never dreamt I would be able to achieve so much. Emma and Sandra are wonderful teachers giving so much positivity and encouragement. I leave every class feeling uplifted, good about myself and wearing a big smile on my face.”

Why do Pole?

There are so many benefits to joining a Pole class . One many people don’t expect when they start attending is that you walk into an amazing community of people who are really supportive and make you feel as though you can conquer the world! There is always such a wonderful camaraderie in the classes, the atmosphere is fantastic. There is no judgement, just encouragement. The community is a massive part of Pole.

Another reason people love Pole dancing classes is because they don’t feel like exercise. There are so many ways to get fit and they often don’t look like the standard gym workouts. Pole is great for building strength and tone, but also wonderful for overall health.

“Pole fitness has improved my body shape, core strength, confidence and general sense of well-being. I go home buzzing – absolutely love it!”

People also love the variety. Pole has so many elements no two sessions ever feels the same. We never run out of new things to try it keeps people coming back time and time again. The options are limitless!

But honestly if you ask most of the people who come to Pole why they love it one of the biggest themes is confidence. Often body confidence but also the confidence to believe in yourself and try new things. Pole is empowering. That’s why people love it.

How to get involved

You don’t need any equipment to join any of our classes just come along.

For Pole it’s best to wear shorts and a cropped top, just because some exposed skin is needed to stick to the pole. There is definitely no need to buy anything special. If you have any questions or concerns please do give us a call to chat them through.
