We are going to see if we can share some gym space with one of these places.





You know, to cut costs.

wow. That is just wrong.

It says that it is marketed for adults, but. . . it doesn't look like it to me.

I second the entire wrongness thing!

Although, I can imagine this line:

"So.... You're a stripper! You should come over sometime. No really, I've got the pole and everything"

Performing in heels is an art in itself I hear!

When I saw the topic I thought that it would be refering to pole acrobatic work which I would really like to try.
Any one with access to good recomendation of pole work links,set up or silk rope work for that matter.
Anyone investigated using this in WOs?
Cheers
