Celebrity fitness instructor Namrata Purohit has been in news for introducing Pilates to the life of some of the fittest and most well known faces from fashion, Bollywood and society. She has instantly hit limelight and gathered a large following due to her innovative techniques making the workout so much more fun. This month she introduces yet another kind of workout known as Pole Fitness to get you to come back to her studio.
Namrata Purohit speaks about her new workout routine. “Pole fitness is one activity that targets not only the entire body, but also the mind and soul. I tried pole fitness for the first time while I was studying at Loughborough University and immediately fell in love with it. It didn’t take me more than 5 minutes into my first class to decide that this was something I want to bring to India, a fitness form that Indians need to experience. Throughout my class I found this new appreciation for pole dancers, and people who practice pole fitness. They make it look so beautiful, so effortless but it is hard, really hard. Your entire body needs to be in sync in order to be able to do a move, and look good while doing it. I felt each muscle in my body, my arms, core, legs everything was working, and I was also having a lot of fun. Like Pilates, I found pole to be something that worked the body and mind. It not only works on your strength but on flexibility, balance, stability, and most importantly builds your confidence. After finishing a pole fitness session, you feel strong, sexy, and beautiful and you tend to appreciate and love yourself even more. It is a very enlightening experience.
There are many times in a pole class you will not know what you are doing, it does get complicated, but that is just part of the fun. You work your way through it and when you get it right it is the most satisfying feeling. Pole fitness is great for many reasons. It strengthens the core, burns calories, improves strength, flexibility, stamina, and balance, builds self-confidence, reduces stress, and is also something that will make you extremely happy. As I have always said fitness should be fun, and pole fitness is definitely a fun way to get fit. ”
