Mile after mile on the treadmill added to the monotony of crunches and push-ups with a few free-weight spurts here and there – your workout life desperately needs a makeover, and PoleKittens Fitness has the sexy solution.

 

After losing more than 25 pounds and several dress sizes with her workouts, founder Victoria Lore opened PoleKittens for business. The fitness studio, located at 4719 Vine St. in Over-the-Rhine, offers workout and dance classes, specialty workshops, and private lessons to give your body a workout while letting you tune in to your inner sex kitten. The classes range from the SophistiKitten class, which moves at a slower pace and is designed for women with age and weight concerns, to the AlphaKitten advanced class that requires an instructor’s approval.

 

The classes also offer “practical” classes that your man wouldn’t mind seeing you practice. “LapKittens is a spicy lap dance class that provides an amazing lower body workout,” according to the Web site. And if you aren’t quite ready for LapKittens, the Booty Camp Class might be for you. Far from a Boot Camp, this fun class focuses on teaching you how to shake what your mama gave you and then some.

 

Coming up on Jan. 29, PoleKittens is playing host to a special Valentines’ Day StripTease workshop from 7:15 to 8:45 p.m. And with V-day around the corner you might want to think about giving a sexy StripTease instead of (or in addition to) that bottle of wine and box of chocolates you had planned.0208GIBBERMAN.gif

 

Before venturing into some of the classes, PoleKittens requires you to take a PoleKitten Primer class to prepare you for the other classes. This class teaches basic skills every Friday at 7 p.m.

 

With any of the PoleKittens classes or workshops, participants receive individualized attention because classes are kept to a strict limit, which ranges from four to six women. (And yes, the facility is a man-free zone, so you can enjoy the sanctuary with your femme friends.)

 

If you’re not comfortable strutting your stuff in front of a class, small as it may be, PoleKittens also offers private parties. For $200 on weekdays and $250 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, you and up to nine friends can learn some moves on the sexier side of the spectrum with some basic pole dance instruction. (More friends can join for $20 a person.) “You can come out and play, have fun and feel very supported by your friends and one of our qualified party presenters,” according to the Web site.

 

So whether it’s to achieve your goal of a better body or your desire to feel sexier, check out PoleKittens online or call (513) 559-1665.
