I’m a medical esthetician, hence, to me health, beauty and fitness are the most important aspects of life, especially my type of business. Among those three, fitness is the most critical factor, without it, it’s difficult to stay healthy and beautiful. Since I started attending the acupuncture program, I have found out I am lack to yang energy which is the energy that keeps us active, hence, I feel tired and sleepy during the days. This syndrome is also prone to cause edema and obesity. I’m supposed to get acupuncture treatment every other day to help balance my energy and regulate blood, body fluid, but haven’t got time for myself.
However, since I started pole fitness three times a week, 2 – 3 hours each time, my yang energy has raised up, I feel energized and active all the time without taking any naps during the day. This is a huge improvement for my health. I also notice my skin is glowing with pink undertone, I no longer look pale and lifeless. Besides, when you sweat more, your body is able to go through a detox process, hence less chance of getting breakouts. Working out also helps regulate body fluid, moisten the muscles, and hydrate the skin, therefore, your skin ages much slower. And obviously, the more you work out, the quicker you get your dream body.
I have tried most of the workout I’ve heard about, but nothing is like the pole experience. When putting your mind into accomplishing a move, you forget you’re working out. That’s what I love most about pole fitness, building your strength without feeling bored of the same motions.
If you are beginner, and would like to build up strength quickly, I recommend you to attend at least 3 times a week, as little as an hour each time. This would help condition your muscles and strength. Besides, it will start you with a good workout habit. Do your best and don’t rush!!! Those are my tips for beginners. Trying to keep that in the back of my mind, is hard. Resisting wanting to know all the moves; but try to relax. Do your best. You’ll get there before knowing it
