What is vertical pole gymnastics?

New ways of getting your body moving are cropping up every day. Why choose vertical pole gymnastics over yoga, pilates, zumba, tai chi, salsa dancing or any other form of exercise?

In purely physical terms, vertical pole gymnastics is very effective in developing strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. Regular practice will also increase your ability to concentrate, boost your energy levels and improve your ability to deal with stress.

Vertical pole gymnastics is an ancient practice that encourages you to respect your body and its capabilities, to challenge your preconceptions and to use the physical practice to improve your overall health and well-being. While vertical pole gymnastics is now practised worldwide, it is still relatively new in Australia.

Pole gymnastics has steadily been gaining mainstream recognition as a legitimate form of fitness training, which is not surprising as dancers, circus artists, athletes, and gymnasts are all among those adopting the sport.

Vertical pole gymnastics

Vertical pole gymnastics focuses on technique and execution, sharing many facets common to acrobatics, figure skating, callisthenics and most closely related to the "rope" commonly found in gymnasiums.

Gymnastics is a sport involving performance of exercises requiring physical strength, flexibility, agility, coordination, balance, grace and passion.

Callisthenics are a form of dynamic exercise consisting of a variety of simple, often rhythmical, movements such as bending, jumping, swinging, twisting or kicking, using only one's body weight for resistance and conducted in concert with stretches.

Vertical pole gymnastics brings gymnastics and callisthenics together to form a unique sport that benefits both muscular and cardiovascular fitness, in addition to improving psychomotor skills such as balance, agility and co-ordination.

Burn more calories in a single hour

You can expect to burn more calories and fat than with alternative strength training methods: you will sculpt your entire body, developing firmer arms, more defined shoulders, back and abs, glutes and legs. It also improves mental health, helps prevent depression, helps to promote or maintain positive self esteem, and can even augment an individual's sex appeal or body image, which is also found to be linked with higher levels of self-esteem.

Vertical pole gymnastics offer a fast-track to body sculpting, conditioning and improved posture unlike other fitness training routines available today.
