Pole Fitness and New Beginnings!

By | March 15th, 2017|Categories: Guest Writer|Tags: , , , |

By Mary Milligan   About a year ago, I ran into one of my shyest, most introverted friends whom I haven’t seen in a long time. As we were catching up, she took a swift look at her phone, noted the time and paused for a second. I think she knew she was about to make my day. She invited me to join her for a pole fitness lesson. “Just for fun,” she said. Twenty-four hours later, I was so in love, and in so much pain. This turned out to be one of the most memorable experiences in my life. And now, as I'm getting ready for one of my first performances at our pole studio, I wanted to share why I not only started [...]

Why weight? Get started today! See what I did there? The Secret's Out For years, people have avoided the weights room. It's almost been like an exclusive club which required a meat head membership. The biggest guys were in there, the loudest and more often than not, the most obnoxious too.

People are beginning to realise, the weights room is where the results are. It doesn't take a genius to realise that the most impressive physiques, whether it be the strongest or the most aesthetic, all lie in the same place. The Weights [...]

The Squat. Best Booty Builder right? Wrong! The Squat can be a great exercise, but more often then not, the way it's executed makes it one of the worst exercises to build a Booty. Unless you have someone constantly watching the way you squat, or you have enough experience to keep constant tension in the glutes through every rep in the entire set, you'll probably miss out on a lot of premium muscle growth. What you're doing wrong, and how to fix The Squat! Ass to grass! Every single rep! Here's the problem with squatting too low. Most people don't have the flexibility or mobility to keep the glutes working all the way through the squat. There's a point you get to in your low [...]

The exclusivity of boxing is long gone and the time is ripe to get fit and strong all while learning to float like a butterfly and [...]

By | October 10th, 2015|Categories: Guest Writer|Tags: , , , , |

My reason for posting this infographic should come as no surprise.  Many people are convinced they want to achieve a particular physique goal but generally they have no idea the sacrifices and planning needed to achieve the body of their dreams.  It's very easy to set out on a goal, and it's also pretty simple to move from one level to the next, but in order to get super lean, or even close to it, requires more than most people are willing to give. There's a reason why very few will build a lean cover model body, because the work, effort and dedication required will take a lot out of you.  Hopefully this infographic will be [...]
