    How to Choose the Right Spot in your Apartment 

    If you live in the city, you may be paying a higher price for a smaller apartment. That’s why portable dance poles are the new trend in 2021! These fun and simple poles are full-body workouts and can be easily installed and removed in a matter of minutes. Here are some tips on how to pick the right spot for your pole:

    Measure the space before you install. Your dance pole should be at least your full body length from the wall and other objects. This will ensure the best safety practices while you’re dancing and avoid injury to yourself or damage to your apartment. You should also measure the distance between the floor and your ceiling to reduce the risk of damage to your home.

    Use a stud finder. Mount your dance pole under a stud in your ceiling. This is the best way to securely attach your pole to your ceiling at its strongest point.

    Avoid Lighting fixtures. Even if you do not plan on climbing to the top of your dance pole, it is a good idea to avoid the lighting fixtures on your ceiling, especially if it is a chandelier. This is because as you become more skilled on the pole, you may go upside down, and you need as much room possible to practice more dangerous tricks. 

    How to Install Your Dance Pole 

    Step 1: 

    Measure the distance between your ground and ceiling and refer to the diagram below to decide if you need to install either the pole or extension pole or both or neither.

    Step 2:

    Loosen out the protruding part of the bottom pole a little bit, as shown in the video.

    Step 3:

    Tips For Installing a Pole at Home - Wink Fitness Wear

    September 10, 2021

    In our previous bog posts we talked you through how to buy the best fitness pole for home use and hopefully you gained enough knowledge to make your purchase. If your pole has arrived, you’re probably wondering how to install your pole at home. But don’t worry! It isn’t as daunting as you may think, and we have pulled together this handy guide to help. You will be swinging around your shiny new pole before you know it!

    Of course, each type of pole requires a different installation process, and you should carefully read the manual which came with your pole for the finer details on the specific installation process.

    There are however several things you should consider when tackling a pole installation at home which are often not covered in the manuals. That’s where we can help!

    Have a Spotter

    Spotter. A word we use a lot in pole fitness! Just to clarify for any beginners, a spotter is a person who is there to watch you ‘doing your thing’ and catch you if needed. As well as using a spotter when learning new pole moves, it is also important to have a spotter when installing a dance pole at home seeing as your will be using a ladder.

    Bear in mind that you will also need help when extending the pole into its final position.

    Get to Know your Ceiling

    You probably already have a spot in mind for your pole, but it is extremely important to ensure that the ceiling is suitable to hold a pole safely.

    If you have opted for a freestanding pole, then you can skip this section. If you have opted for a tension and pressure pole or a fixed ceiling mounted pole, then please read on.

    Concrete ceilings are ideal for home pole installations as they are extremely sturdy and consistent throughout. If you know that your ceiling is made of solid concrete, then all areas of the ceiling will be strong enough to hold your pole.  However, if your ceiling is made up of metal girders or joists and boards then you need ensure that you are locating your pole underneath a girder or joist for maximum safety. You can locate these by using a stud finder or by tapping the ceiling. When tapping on a girder or joist, the sound will be much more solid.

    Assess the Space

    Once you have found a suitable location to install your pole, you must assess that there is enough space around it. To do this, put an object on the floor where the base of your pole will be, fully extend your arms and walk around the object. If your can walk freely without any obstruction, then the area is suitable.

    Follow Instructions Carefully

    Poles tend to come in several pieces and require some assembly. Firstly, check that you have all the pieces listed in your manual. Once you have checked off all the items, follow the instructions very carefully to construct and secure your pole to its location. If you are unsure about any part of the instructions, it is important that you contact the pole manufacturer directly to get clarification.   

    Carry Out Final Checks

    Once you have finished the process of installing a pole at home your will probably be desperate to jump straight on, but it is important that you carry out some last safety checks before you do so.

    Firstly, check that all fastenings and joints on the pole are pole are tight using the allen key or tool provided. If you have opted for a tension and pressure pole you should ensure that the rubber on each end of the pole provides adequate grip by applying high pressure to the top, middle and base of the pole. When doing this, you should feel no movement or slipping. If you are using a permanent ceiling mounted pole, do the same to check that it is properly secured.

    Pole dancing, striptease - how to dance; man pole dance | Chita.


    A little more and the video will load

    Yuri is one of the few men who decided to master pole dance. Look at the video how he manages pole acrobatics

    Video: Kristina Polevaya

    Yuri Proshin from Arkhangelsk chose a pylon instead of a barbell - in such an atypical way for men, he decided to maintain physical fitness. Acrobatics really requires stamina and agility. And let for the uninitiated, everything looks like a striptease - in fact, these are hard workouts in which all muscle groups are involved. Although without huge heels - nowhere.

    Pole dance is a type of dance that uses one or two poles. The performance combines elements of choreography, gymnastics, and acrobatics. Often mistakenly confused with striptease.

    Of course, you could go to the gym for strong muscles, but for the creative personality of Yuri Proshin - he works as an actor in the drama theater - it seemed too boring.

    - The main difference from the pieces of iron is that you cannot choose the weight here. You are still working with your weight. Well, you can't get away from him. You have to lift yourself up, just in different positions.

    Pole dance involves all the muscles. After a month of training, Yuri felt the result. So he was drawn into pole acrobatics. For the ninth month he has been training surrounded by girls. For Arkhangelsk, a man in such classes is a rarity, which is also confirmed by Nadezhda Istomina, head of the Soul Club studio:

    - When Yura wrote, I remember sending this message to all my coaches: “Look, a boy wrote to us!” But I so wanted him to try himself, because for other cities it is normal that a man dances on a pole.

    The coach gives Yuri a more difficult load. It is easier for men to perform the power elements of the dance. The main profession prepared Yuri for pole dance. As we have already said, he is a drama theater actor:

    — And it helped me a lot that I had also encountered acrobatics before, and it seems that I have no problems with a sense of balance. I know how to fall safely, it also helped a lot. I’ll tell you a secret: in order to fall safely, you need to quickly lie down, says Yuri Proshin.

    The actor has always loved the language of movement and dancing, but 20 cm high heels became a test...

    - I thought, my God, how high. In fact, dance shoes, they are specially designed for this, and it is very comfortable to stand and walk on them. And there are elements that are really easier and safer to do in strips than just with a bare leg.

    Hobbies are not the most common in male circles, but Yuri Proshin is not afraid of a wave of hate. Relatives accept all his hobbies.

    - Friends support, mother supports, but does not understand why strips. At work, they got used to me that I was constantly doing something incomprehensible. So, they giggle, but in a kind way.

    Earlier we told the story of hairdresser Nadezhda Semyonova, who, at the age of 57, also decided to master pole acrobatics. She went to pole dance out of pure curiosity, but over time she was so carried away by this direction that she even installed a pole at home.
