Pole Dancing May Just be my New Workout!
When all else fails why not try some Pole Dancing??  And that’s exactly what I did yesterday as I stopped in at JM Kennedy Studios in Pawtucket for a Pole Dancing AND Zumba class.  Let me begin by saying I love working out.  Yes you heard me I actually like it.  I also love running, but I’ve been laying off it a bit because of my lower back.  I decided it’s time to find something else to do instead of just running.  So I turned to the experts, Jennifer Kennedy from JM Kennedy Entertainment.  And let me just say if Pole Dancing can get me Jennifer’s body than DAMN I’m IN!  Lol.  I will admit I was a little intimidate and maybe even scared for my life.  I mean how the hell am I supposed to climb up this pole or even hang there.  But throughout the whole class I kept telling myself, “Just Have Fun” and that’s exactly what I did.  And what a workout!  I forgot that there are other things you can do instead of running to get a good workout.  Pole Dancing is a GREAT upper body AND core workout.  So does that mean I’ll finally have a 6-pack??  Well maybe not in the next few classes but maybe I’ll become a ‘Pollerina’ afterall.  So after an hour of Pole Dancing I stayed for Zumba.  My first Zumba class may I add and wow I felt like I was at a club.  I mean this is a workout right?  Zumba made me realize you can have fun while burnig some calories.  Geezzz I need to change up my workout routine more often and have fun with it.  I had a really good time and almost forgot I was working out.  Thanks ladies….you’ll definitely be seeing me again.  Check out the video below.  ENJOY!

It’s easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating, often building a deep-rooted community among returning students.

Students learn how to use lightweight, maraca-like Toning Sticks to enhance rhythm and tone all their target zones, including arms, abs, glutes and thighs.

Post Pregnancy Workout for the Modern Women!

Being a Pole Fitness Mom, Before and After!

Kerri's before and After Picture

I am the first at the JM Kennedy Dance & Pole Fitness Studio to have what we like to joke about as a “Pole Baby”.  Yes, taking Pole Fitness classes made me feel sexier and then before I knew it… “Oops!”…here’s my pole baby.  I had my son in July and in September I was back in the studio taking classes.  By October I was ready to perform in front of an audience for our annual Halloween Show and by January I was teaching Pole Fitness classes for the first time.

For the ladies out there that may currently be pregnant, I do not recommend pole fitness as a source of exercise.  With the pregnancy, it limits the number of safe moves you can perform and it’s just not worth the risk.  There are many types of safe exercises you can perform while pregnant like walking, swimming and yoga. I also recommend using coco butter daily to avoid stretch marks.

I also recommend that you wait at least 12 weeks after having the baby before taking pole fitness classes.  It does take time to gain the strength back and get your muscles back into shape after giving birth.  Even the students out there that haven’t had a baby know,  if you miss a few months or even weeks of pole you’re not going to be as strong as before. Don’t get discouraged, your muscle memory will come back. I am living proof of that.

If you’re looking for a way to get back into shape and be the sexy mama you know you are, pole fitness is the way to go!

Guess What? No Dance Background Required!

The Hinge

No Dance Background Required!!!

Guess What?! No Dance Background Required!

Hello to all the Sexy Ladies out there!  Yeah, I’m talking to you!  My name is Kerri.  I’ve been a Pole Fitness Instructor with the JM Kennedy Dance Studio since January of 2010.  I am certified through NETA.

So you’d like to know how I became part of this amazing studio?  Well, here it is!

It all started in February of 2007.  I’d always wanted to take some sort of dance class, maybe hip hop or jazz but I was 27 at the time….where would I begin?  I was driving home from work one day and heard an advertisement on the radio about Pole Fitness classes.  That would be perfect!  I made a mental note to call as soon as I got home.   I got the class schedule and came to the next walk-in class available.  Now, mind you, I had no sort of dance training or taken a dance class before in my life!   I walked into the 3rd week of the session surrounded by other students that seemed like professionals to me (Airplane…what’s an airplane?).  I couldn’t find my right from my left.  I’m not going to lie…it intimidated me.  But I hung in there and after a few classes I started feeling comfortable and couldn’t get enough of it.  After 6 classes there was a noticeable difference in my appearance.  I started getting comments such as “where’d you get those muscles?”  And we can’t forget the infamous bruising…”how’d you get those bruises”.  (I’ve learned that everyone has their own way of answering those questions).

After taking a few sessions at the studio, I got to know Jen and I started helping her out in the office.   Jen is a motivator and the saying, Never Say Never, definitely applies to her classes.  Elevator, I could never do an elevator…by the 6th week I’d guess about 90% of the students are doing elevators.  She also motivated me to start teaching my own Pole Fitness classes.  Did I ever think in my wildest dreams I would be a Pole Fitness Instructor one day? No way!  But here I am, teaching not only Basic Pole for Beginners but Jen also allowed me to create a Pole Level I class for the women out there not ready for Pole II. 

A little bit more about me….I am a proud mom to a 19-month old boy.  During the day I work as a secretary in Downtown Providence.  I am also part of JM Kennedy’s Fringe Dancers who have performed at various venues.  The Fringe Dancers specialize in Cabaret and Burlesque performances.  We most recently performed at the Hi-Hat in Davol Square for a Valentine’s Burlesque Show which included singing, pole dancing, chair dancing and belly dancing. 

So, take it from someone with no dance background.  This is the place to start!  It’s never too late.  I’ve seen all sizes and ages take class at the JM Kennedy Dance Studio.  I’ve seen mothers, daughters, grandmothers, sisters, friends, co-workers and even the occasional being of the male species.  We do not discriminate at the JM Kennedy Dance Studio!
