as some of you may know I have a new found love and appreciation for strippers. That's right, you heard me, strippers.
For the past few months I have been participating in a new exercise fad called SFactor. SFactor is:
"a groundbreaking movement technique that will help you discover a great new way to workout and an inspiring body attitude. This ORIGINAL workout inspired by yoga, ballet, striptease and pole dancing, promises to empower, enlighten and change the lives of women everywhere!"
Yes, that's right, pole dancing. And I have to tell you, I don't know if I've had so much fun in my life. The workout consists of an hour of warm up which has stretching, ab and arm work outs and a lot of touching yourself and "woo-hoo"ing. Its all women and it's very dark in the room so there's no need to feel self concious or nervous or anything. It's a great time to just let go and let out your inner sex goddess.
The second part of the workout is pole tricks and stripper routines. This is way harder than it sounds. The pole tricks often leave my body battered and bruised the next morning. Last week we tried to hold ourselves up perpendicular to the pole while spinning and still looking graceful. I failed miserably but still left with a smile on my face.
My class consists of 7 women, ranging in age from 20-40, single and married, straight and gay. They are all super supportive and throw away all their misconceptions about what is sexy, what is beautiful and what is powerful at the door. Once you walk through that door you become the sexiest and most sensual person in the room and it is up to you to use that power in the workout.
The last, and probably my most favorite part about SFactor is the clothing. You can pretty much wear anything you want to class but you're encouraged to deck yourself out with frilly panties, lacey bras, satiny tops and big plastic stripper shoes. I love my stripper shoes. They make me feel powerful, sexy and most of all, tall. Once you learn to walk in them you find that it's easy to feel like a powerful sex goddess when you're walking around in 6-inch platforms.
Anyway if you're curious, and I know you are you should take an intro class. They are usually $40 for an 1.5 hour class but they are currently running a special for only $20. If you take a class, love it and sign up for level 1 classes, please make sure to mention my name because I get free classes for referrals.
Honestly ladies, it's the most fun you'll ever have and you HAVE to try it at least once. Call it a holiday gift to yourself.
