Pole Position: Your Kit Bag

So I hope I've inspired a few of you to try Pole after writing about My Pole Story and also about my journey through the last course I completed (Intermediate 1). Yesterday I started the next course, Intermediate 2, which was one of my goals for 2013.

I realised that preparing for your Pole class, including packing your kit bag, is not exactly the same as packing your kit bag for the gym; so here is a little post to help.

Preparation
Ensure that you do not moisturise for a day before your class. I find it best to take my shower the night before, moisturise then and by the time I come to class my skin is suitable. It's as much a health and safety issue as is is for enjoyment! It's gonna be no fun falling off a pole and frustrating if you can't do the moves because you can't get a good grip!

For the ladies; you'll be wearing shorts so ensure you shave your legs and other visible areas, cut and paint your toe nails! Maybe the toenails thing is personal to me? But I prefer to see pretty feet and toes!

In the bag
Shorts
Sports bra
Top
Outfit (vest, bra, shorts) and leg warmers
High heels
Warm up clothes (sweatpants and sweater)
Towel (to dry / clean hands, wipe down pole)
Water
My favourite heels

I always take grip for emergencies :)
As before I'll be sharing my journey on the Intermediate 2 course with you all here on Keep it SimpElle so wish me luck and stay tuned :) Until then, check out my Yoga...Pole...Splits board on Pinterest which I use as my inspiration!
