A few years back, pole dancing became the latest exercise trend to hit the world. Instead of yoga, people would trot out to pole dancing lessons as a way of staying in shape while also staying sexy, and pole dancing continues to gain ground as a legitimate form of workout. So recognize that Pocket Pole Studio is strictly designed for this kind of audience, and not the strip club enthusiast.
Pocket Pole Studio is basically a collection of photos and videos designed to help budding pole dancers learn the moves. Photo galleries serve to showcase the desired position, while the Youtube videos demonstrate how to attain it. The collection is easy to browse, and the moves are sorted by difficulty, but this is intended solely as a reference tool and not as a step-by-step guide. Because of this, it is not recommended for complete beginners, and it is clearly stated that you should consult with a medical expert before attempting any kind of new workout.
The moves showcased are undeniably athletic and I have no doubt that they would make for one heck of a workout, but it is probably worth mentioning that I have not personally tried any of the moves. I don’t have a pole installed in my apartment, nor do I ever intend to take any pole dancing classes, but if I did, Pocket Pole Studio would certainly make for a handy tool.
In addition to the gallery of moves, Pocket Pole Studio also has a few other features, like email addresses and links to pole dancing experts and websites to help you get started, but a lot of it boils down to “educational” advertising, a fact I wouldn’t have minded so much, if not for Pocket Pole Studio’s rather high $9.99 price tag. No doubt attending a class is the best way to get started, but the stealth advertising still left a bad taste in my mouth.
That said, for all of its popularity in the media, aerobic pole dancing is still a fairly small niche market, so you won’t find many apps catering to it, and Pocket Pole Studio is definitely the most comprehensive and professional looking one out there. It’s almost certainly not for everyone, but if you’re one of the pole crazy few looking for a convenient way to fine-tune your pole dancing routine or a teacher in need of inspiration, Pocket Pole Studio is a valuable, in-depth resource.
