After 2 weeks of your training, I can now handspring – something I have been trying to learn for the last 3 years. Just thought you should know how amazing you are!!

I tried your handstand gym session on Sunday, and I am feeling it today!! This is just what I need to get myself training again. I love being able to film myself, keep notes etc and this has really motivated me to get my butt in gear.

Just started this week and am really enjoying it! The app is super clear and easy to follow – I like the way it repeats so I can listen to your instructions whilst I am doing my reps. It is good to have the written and visual guidance and different levels to make things easier or more difficult! Fab!

I’ve been working with Neo since October. She is a great accountability partner, even from across the pond! She’s helped me be more conscious of what I’m eating and how I’m moving. Life changing!! Highly recommended!!

Neo has been the best and keeps me super accountable. Run don’t walk to contact her.

Third week of training with Neo…. Just did a clean set of six nice chin ups, after being stuck at four for months. Sometimes the best results are when we least expect them!! THANK YOU NEO!
The pole handstand deadlift isn’t purely a strength move – bio-mechanics plays a big part in this move too!
My progressive 8-week programme contains EVERYTHING you need to master the pole handstand deadlift, including:
A new on-the-pole workout every week
A new gym workout every week
A new home workout every week (handstand training you can do with no equipment at home)
Access to my private, client-only Facebook support group
All provided direct to your computer, tablet or mobile phone through the Pole PT app
This 8-week pole handstand programme focuses on strengthening all the muscle groups you need to execute this move with finesse, coupled with the mobility exercises you need to get the shoulders, hips and wrists in the right alignment to deadlift your pole handstand.
Take a look at this video to find out more…
What you need to know
This is a strength and conditioning programme – NOT a trick tutorial! Before starting this programme, you should be comfortable with basic moves on the pole and familiar with twisted grip. You don’t need to have your (kick up) handstand already, although you will progress much faster if you do.
Please note: Our 8-week strength programmes are NOT personalised. If you’d like a fully customised programme, check out our online personal training page.
And please remember: it takes some polers years to master these tricks! Our 8-week programmes will give you all the tools you need to nail them faster and can be repeated as many times as you need, with moves advanced or modified, depending how quickly you progress. You will have access to your programme in the app for 3 months. At any time during that 3 month period, you can log into your account online and download PDFs of the workouts so you can keep them forever.
You’ll need the following equipment to do this programme (if you don’t have something on this list, please let me know and I will provide an alternative exercise for you!):
For your gym workout, you’ll need some kind of CV machine for your warm up – ideally a rowing machine or crosstrainer (elliptical). Both these machines provide a full body workout, but any other CV machine will do (like a treadmill, bike or stepper).
We also be using the following in your gym workout: dumbbells, a box or sturdy bench to stand on, a pull up bar, a Swiss ball (yoga ball), TRX and a yoga strap (a tie or belt from a dressing down makes a good substitute if you don’t have a yoga strap!).
For your pole workout, you’ll need a pole, a resistance band and a box/bench or some large crash mats that you can stack to elevate the feet for your handstand progressions!
