So you have decided to start pole dancing and you need a home pole dancing kit but you aren’t sure which one is safe, or best. When you first start shopping for a home dance pole, you will notice that most people refer to a home dance pole as a starter stripper pole kit. Home stripper pole kits for beginners and home pole dancing kits are basically the same thing, just different lingo.
Many women who use a dance pole for a home workout prefer to call their pole a “fitness pole” or a home “pole dancing pole” because they don’t want people to mistake their intentions. Chances are if you are like most woman, you want a good workout that is fun and sexy, pole dancing for a workout at home is a great fit, however, the fear of what other people will think and the fear of being labeled as a stripper still lingers in the air. Nobody wants to be called a stripper if they aren’t one and they really don’t want to call their fitness pole a stripper pole, that’s when a more professional and softer description came about regarding pole dancing poles.
When you first get started, a pole kit is best for beginners because it will give you everything you need to get started. You may need other things like pole dance crash mats or gripping gloves as you advance and your fitness levels improve. A home pole dancing kit will give you what you need to get started for a beginner with ease.
Here is what a beginner would need in a good home pole dancing kit:
- A safe and sturdy dance pole in your kit: A pole that is both spinning and static is best, but you can start on a static only pole if you desire. There are many poles on the market that are good for home use and depending on your budget, you may or may not want to go with a popular name brand like X Pole or Lil Mynx. It’s also important to note that not all brand name dance pole kits are safe. If you don’t choose to go with a professional name brand, be sure to learn how to buy a SAFE no brand dance pole for your home. Don’t risk your health and safety over saving a buck or too – it’s not worth it!!! Some examples of brand name poles that are not safe are the Carmen Electra dance pole kit, the Chrome Dance Pole Kit at Spencers, and some pole dance kits on Amazon.
