Most experts say mild to moderate exercise is fine if you pass the “neck check,” which means that your symptoms are above the neck (for example, a runny nose or a sore throat). Having symptoms that involve other areas of the body-fever, extreme tiredness, muscle aches, and swollen lymph glands- indicates that you need to take it easy. “Bed rest and a gradual progression back to normal workouts are recommended,” says David C. Nieman, a professor of health science at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC.

Hobbies: Working on cars, racing, snowboarding, and of course…pole dancing!
Tell us about your Work It experience: I got into pole by taking an intro class at work it dance and fitness October 2011, I saw videos of a friend doing it online and though it would be something I would enjoy. It seemed like a very fun way to get in shape. After my first class I was instantly hooked and could not get enough of it.
For me, pole has given me confidence and motivation I never thought I would have. I always strive to get better and learn new tricks and the pole community is the most supportive environment I’ve ever been apart of. I’m currently in the best shape of my life because of pole. I had to stop taking classes to get knee surgery and had a 4 month recovery period, which caused me to gain a lot of weight. In the past 4 months I lost 20 pounds with pole fitness being my only workout.
I have perform at the Sono Arts Festival, a student showcase in Vernon, and recently I performed up in Boston at the Supershag Invitational Championships. I plan on performing another showcase in Vernon and the CT Pole Showcase this winter.
Find your “inner diva” through this fun & flirty class. A mix of burlesque, jazz, and theater dance (think “Chicago”) will give you a sexy attitude and confidence…no matter what your body type is. No dance experience necessary!

Paula has been part of the Work It family of clients for a little over 1 1/2 years. She spends her days as an Office manager / Executive Assistant and her nights practicing her passion, pole fitness. Paula was not a dancer, gymnast, or an acrobat growing up. Her only dance experience was when she decided to take up Salsa dancing, which she did for a short time before discovering pole.
“I wanted to do something fun. I tried to gather a few of my friends together to take a pole class with me. When they all decided not to go, I decided to go by myself.” Paula caught the “pole bug” and has been practicing her art ever since.
“I didn’t even know I could do this” says Paula.
I had the pleasure of watching Paula’s development over the past year, mentally and physically. She has become very strong, very confident, and a beautiful dancer. She progressed so well, she performed in behalf of Work It at the SoNo Arts Festival.
So next time you come to take a pole class, Flex & Stretch, Tone and Tighten, Sensual Movements II, or any other class, say hi to Paula! You will be glad you did!
