Woohoo!! I think you're the only other pole-dancing person on my friends list. XD I've been doing it since the start of 2008, and I can't praise it enough. I'm fitter/stronger/more toned because of it.

Beware of inevitable bruises and soreness in muscles you never even thought existed in the human body as you start out XD But of course that will eventually lessen as you get better!

Oh man, I'm already noticing the soreness. :D And Liz had some bruises to demonstrate to us (she's been doing it for a year and a half) but she added that your skin toughens up in those places after some time and you don't get those anymore. :) It's great fun, I can't wait to do more! (And can't wait to see the toning you mentioned, either!)

It's awesome fun. XDDDD

And yeah, the bruises lessen also as you gain more control over your body - I got the majority of mine on my shins from when I started pole climbs. XD As I improved I was able to mount more lightly and precisely, etc. It's very rewarding because it's a clear indication you're becoming more skilled. :3 Also don't worry if there are tricks you just can't seem to "get". I've heard this many times now and I agree with it - that after a certain period of time something will just click and you'll get it. XD Thought I'd throw that in there!

How long have you been doing it?

Just over a year now and counting. Sorry if I rambled a little. XD;;

Dang girl, don't apologise - I love it when people ramble at me! Learn more that way. :D Ooh, I can't wait to sink my teeth into this hobby, I've needed something physical-yet-social for quite some time, since there's no good rollerskating rinks around here... This is going to be way fun. :)
