We are giving away something — but first, let me explain. I have to admit, I am always on the search for the latest and greatest new workout. I am so passionate about fitness that I have jumped on pretty much every bandwagon that rolled my way: Tae Bo, Pilates, Balete, the Barre Method, Yogilates, Krav Magraw, Spinning, Hoopnatica … the list goes on and on. You name it and I tried it.
Certain workouts have withstood my test of time (or my ADD, that is) and have remained staples, and one of them is pole dancing. Now, I am so not into the whole stripper element of it at all — I can keep my clothes on when working out, thank you very much –but the athleticism and beauty of pole dancing transcends its seedy origin. I actually did publicity for one of the major companies for quite awhile (the one featured on “Oprah,” hint, hint), but it’s overpriced and there are studios everywhere teaching the same thing, if not better, for half the price. But even better — do it at home …

This is your own removable pole. And having a lot of knowledge about setting up studios, I have tried every pole on the market and found the best to be those sold by Lil’ Mynx. Celebs like Kate Hudson, Fergie, Christina Aguilera, Nicole Ritchie and Paris Hilton agree with me (they all have Lil’ Mynx poles of their own), so this has to say something about the poles’ undeniable quality.
First off, I love that these professional-grade poles are manufactured in America. With a recession at the forefront, I am all about keeping production and manufacturing here in the states. These are not those cheap poles sold at novelty stores — because you can fly off those babies and break your precious booty! These are sturdy, reliable and — best of all — removable! I did not want my pole chilling in the family room while my boyfriend’s uber-conservative parents ate Thanksgiving dinner just feet away. Thankfully, these easy-to-install ones are just as easy to take down and with zero pain. Believe me, if I can do it, anyone can, because I am probably the least handy person in history.
Having a removable pole has a myriad benefits. It is so much more comfortable to try this unique workout in the privacy of your own home, without a class full of other women, and there’s always the added benefit that your loved one is certain to enjoy as well. There is a plethora of pole dancing workout DVDs available online, so it is truly very simple to get started. I gained tremendous upper body and core strength from whirling around the pole, and it definitely gives you a rush of endorphins. You almost feel like a kid again — flying across the monkey bars — only this one is vertical and now you’re old enough to do complicated tricks.
Unlike other poles, which rely solely on friction to hold them in place, Lil’ Mynx produces tension poles that are securely attached with a bolt-in mount, which completely ensures your safety. The pole comes in original, polished stainless steel, as well as fun, vibrant hues such as pink, red, black and white. In addition, they recently launched a new version of the pole called The Lil’ Mynx Petite, which is a smaller version (1.75″ in diameter instead of the standard 2″), for those with smaller hands.
