5 Reasons You Shouldn’t Not Do Pole Fitness

Firstly, we're following the double negative here, right? I'm suggesting maybe you SHOULD do pole fitness - if you really want to. (If not, no drama. I get it's not for everyone.)

I read an article a while back that said there were over 152 million blogs on the internet. The article was a couple of years old- by now there are probably shitloads more.
