It's fun, a little sexy, and it gives you a heart-pumping workout.
Some call pole dancing a fad, but others say it's the best workout you'll ever get with only one piece of equipment and an open mind.
Larissa Hanson and Jaylyn Martin are the instructors and owners of L & J's Pole Dance Studio in Marquette, Michigan.
They have been teaching pole dancing classes in Marquette since June.
"When we tell people what we're doing, they automatically think that it's a gentleman's club, or we're teaching people how to go and work at a gentleman's club, and it's not that at all," says Jaylyn Martin.
Instead, it's a mix of dance and acrobatics which tones your upper and lower body as well as working your core.
In order to get started, you must properly warm up to prevent injury.
However, the pole must also be warm, allowing you to have a secure grip on it.
You'll want to hold on tight because even the basic moves can be deceiving; it's a lot harder than it looks.
According to Larissa Hanson, it does work.
She swears by pole dancing.
"I started to feel a lot better about myself," said Larissa, "and the weight has come off."
As a form of aerobic exercise, pole dancing can burn up to 250 calories an hour.
Even more important, says Larissa, is how pole dancing can empower women.
"It makes women feel really good on the inside, something to do with the spirit that comes out," Larissa says.
Both instructors are hoping that more women join in on the fun and give the pole dancing workout a spin.
