Paul and I did the ropes course in Woodinville for a couple of hours and went out on his boat multiple times this past summer (not much of a workout, I know)

We even went ‘clubbing’ where I danced the night away for an hour and a half or so. (Have I mentioned that dancing is great exercise?)

I tried out a hooping class, an aerial dance class, a hip hop class, and a bollywood class and didn’t get much satisfaction out of any of them for various reasons.

And then I found Spinderella… I took 25 pole classes and 2 stretch & flex classes this past year at the studio. I love all my instructors, especially the owner, who is fabulous in so many ways.
