This day last year was the day that I went to a pole dancing class for the first time. I was with my friend and we were both nervous, but it was something we had always wanted to do so we decided to take the chance and go for a taster class.
After that one class, I was hooked, it was super fun and everyone was really supportive and so I kept going back.
Flash forward to now and I am more than ready to start another year of pole. I think it’s crazy the amount of progress I have been able to make in just a year. When I started, I felt like I would never be able to do any of those crazy spins/moves I had seen my teacher do countless times between classes. But slowly I have been making progress and getting stronger and I think today it really shows.
The video above was taken today, and honestly, if you had told me last year that I would be able to do something like that? I probably would have laughed you out of the room. So I’m really proud of all the progress that I’ve made and I can’t wait to see how far along I get this year!
I’ve been sharing weekly progress updates on my Twitter for the past year, and I think I might start taking to my blog to post more in-depth updates depending on the week, so definitely look out for more pole posts in the future!
