danielle_D2 years ago I made this decision and bought a term worth of casual passes on special. The best decision I have ever made. I am fit, strong, beautiful, confident and have met the most beautiful ladies who have become wonderful life long friends. If I had never taken the risk of trying something new and sticking with it even though it was hard, I honestly don’t think I would have been able to survive the last year. It has shown me just how beautiful I am and the amazing things I can do with my body when I trust it. I fall but I get back up. It has shown me that life will knock you down and that’s ok. I now have the friends and the confidence to reach out when I need help. It will hurt but I will continue on, pick myself up, dust myself off, maybe apply an ice pack or two and I will be stronger for it. The best thing about starting pole is that it doesn’t matter how old you are, how unfit you are, how fat you think you are, all you have to do is start and give it a go and you will find the people around you supportive and encouraging and you are bound to have fun, all it takes is the courage to step out of your comfort zone and take a risk on something you normally wouldn’t do.
