Course Description

The theory section of this course will teach you the basic rules of working with the spinning mechanism, the importance of shoulder engagement, hand grip technique and control of momentum, along with health and safety specific to spinning pole. The practical section of this course will cover over key techniques using the spinning mechanism, including combinations and conditioning examples.


To begin the training we will cover the distinct differences between working on static and spinning pole. We’ll cover pole-specific terminology, how to create momentum on a spinning pole and most importantly, how to control the spin and combat dizziness.


The second unit of the course covers our spinning pole introductory syllabus, broken down into three sections; Basic Spins, Seated Spins; Climbing on Spin. Each move will be detailed with a video of the technique including teaching points, safety points, progressions and regressions. The accompanying course manual breaks these down even further with common problems your students may encounter.


Spinning pole leads naturally to lots of combinations where you can link together various moves and poses to create beautiful combinations. In this section of the course we have provided set combinations alongside a combinations ‘toolbox’, which is formed of a variety of prompts to encourage creativity and build in additional challenge for more experienced students.


This unit explores a short series of strength and conditioning drills that can be used with your students to help increase confidence and technique as well as their strength.


The final unit of the course covers Health and Safety from a both the general perspective of pole fitness classes, as well as spinning pole-specific safety principles.
