Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know about my Books & Online Programmes!

What is the difference between the two Pole PT books?
My first book, Strength and Conditioning for Pole, is focused on strength training for pole dance. It contains a framework for creating your own training programme to help you get strong for pole. Although we do discuss pole biomechanics and anatomy in this book, the focus is firmly on strength and conditioning and HOW to structure a training programme for pole. Pole Anatomy dives MUCH deeper into the biomechanics and anatomy of the individual tricks of pole dance. It covers over 60 individual pole moves and explains the skeletal and muscular actions of each one. The purpose of this book is to help you understand the biomechanics of pole in more detail, to help you troubleshoot individual moves. It does not cover how to train for those moves - you'll need my first book, Strength and Conditioning for Pole for the training side of things!
Who are the Pole PT books for?
Strength and Conditioning for Pole is for all pole dancers – whether you are just taking your first tentative steps around the pole, or are performing or teaching at a professional level. If you are a beginner, this book will help you start your pole journey off the right way with a step-by-step approach to your training that will stand you in the best possible stead for your future success as a pole dancer. If you are an experienced pole dancer, the book will allow you to explore your strengths and weaknesses with pole-specific strength and flexibility tests. It will help you to pinpoint the areas that might be holding you in a pole plateu and help you to understand and refine your movements even more. It will also help you to create an advanced training structure so you can look after your pole body for the long term. Pole instructors will enjoy geeking out on the finer details and biomechanics of pole dance. The book will help you to better understand your students’ unique strengths and weaknesses and structure your studio’s syllabus in the safest, most optimal way for progression. Pole Anatomy is for any pole dancer who likes to get super nerdy on the anatomy detail of pole tricks! It's written for pole students, instructors and fitness progressionals who want to know more about the skeletal and muscular actions of individual pole tricks. Pole Anatomy contains over 60 pole tricks with full colour anatomical illustations of each one. It also comes with an interactive 3D model library so you can see each move from all angles! Unleash your inner pole nerd with this one!
Are the Pole PT books good for beginners?
If you are just getting started in pole, Strength and Conditioning for Pole will help you to get your pole journey off to the best possible start with a step-by-step approach to your training that will stand you in the best possible stead for your future success as a pole dancer. You don’t have to be strong and flexible already to start pole – we are all working on it at different levels – but the book will help you to understand what levels of strength and flexibility will be needed for different moves and teach you how to work on those areas both on and off the pole.
