Pole fitness is an amazing workout. It is just a shame that the only place offering this great exercise is a studio that does not value long term clients. If you want to start out here, they are fine, but if you want to progress through levels, prepare to pay your way up. It no longer relies on your ability to do moves, it is about spending "X" amount of money and time with them before being able to advance your skills. Long time customers are pushed aside and have limited time slots for workouts because all the focus is put on recruiting new people. Schedules change VERY often, so if you are fitting the workout into an already set schedule, be prepared to have it changed on you. There are no refunds and full payment is taken before sessions begin.

The flooring in the studio is dangerous and shabby. It's faux wood and separates from itself near the poles resulting in stuck heels or torn up toes. The poles rock back and forth, the securing screws are coming out of the floor and are even missing on some. Air conditioning is there, but never used, so the excessive SC heat affects your workout. Merchandise is outrageously priced. If you don't join them constantly in the "nights out" or suck up to them in classes, you're outcasted. Portraits are a waste of money, as they are so heavily edited it takes away from the subject of the photos - yourself.

Even safety has gone downhill - with all the new level 1's, there is barely room to fit everyone in there. But as long as money is going into pockets, safety isn't important. I personally saw multiple girls kicked or tripped over because so many were accepted into what once was an 8-woman class. They believe that they are allowed into all of your business, including what you do outside the studio, whether it concerns them or not, and that is unacceptable when they use it against you there. (Such as who you associate with, what your work/home/school schedule is, etc).

A long time ago I was happy to recommend this business, but it has been spiraling down hill quickly as of late, banning members, pushing members out any way they can, and only caring for the ones stuck to their hips or bringing in new money. A long time ago, this place was run much better, but all the "changes for the better", as they called it, affected everyone who had been around before. The "changes for the better" were equal to "more money, more new people, less senior members." They are also intimidated by anyone who can showcase something they have not personally taught them, or cannot do themselves.
