Let's get physical with pole fitness

THE exercise scene on the Coast is about to be flipped upside down.

Those looking to spice up their fitness routines will be able to get their sweat on at PhysiPole Studios' new Buderim location.

Owner Kirsty Van Noordenburg said pole fitness wasn't just for strip clubs and shady bars.

"Pole dancing has changed a lot in the last decade, it's becoming very popular in the fitness industry,” she said.

"Stigma isn't a worry because I don't try and change people's minds, I just say it's a great way to exercise.”

Both genders of all fitness levels are welcome to attend classes, Kirsty said, despite the misconception it was only for women.

"We have a lot of guys that train with us, so it's becoming more accepting that everyone can do it,” she said.

"The more we grow as a fitness industry, the more people realise that men can do it too.”

She said even those who avoided exercise love it.

"You're exercising but not even realising how difficult it is because you're having so much fun,” Kirsty said.

Yet the best part of PhysiPole Studios is the encouraging environment, she believes.

"Everyone is so beautiful, there is no judgment and there's just that vibe that you know you're a part of something incredible,” she said.

The PhysiPole Studios Sunshine Coast open day will be on April 28 from 2-4pm at Wises Rd in Buderim. Guest performances and raffle prizes will be on offer.
