Rock The Pole, TKO, and a Link Up

White Tank:  Ralph Lauren // Rock The Pole Tank // Pants:  INC // Sneakers:  Converse

Don’t laugh at those pictures I had bruises for weeks (well two weeks) from that pole.  That girl with the dark hair in the last picture is my cousin.  She owns a studio in Gdynia, Poland (so for any of my Polish readers look her up!) called Rock the Pole.  It’s a studio that has I believe 8 poles on the one half and when you first walk in there’s a mini gym so you can work out if you prefer to do that.  I went to a Pole Dancing competition in Sopot, Poland and some of those girls are so fit it seriously motivates me to at least start working out.  Pole Dancing is becoming more of a competitive sport rather than just something women do at a Gentleman’s Club.  The girls that I watched were athletes.  Their bodies were the definition of #fitspo and pole dancing is definitely a lot harder than it looks.

When my cousin asked me to see her studio of course I went and tested out my skills and failed terribly lol.  My huge black and blue bruise on my thigh shows proof but I did get on the pole and hold this position for a little bit so I’m proud!

So with all of the above being said I wanted to introduce something to include in your fitness routine.  I was recently asked to review some jump ropes and we all know how big of a workout these things are.  I’m pretty sure that’s how I stayed so thin when I was younger.  I used to love jump roping whether I was alone or with other people.

Introducing TKO Jump Ropes.  My dad has already tried to take over these for his training but I think we are going to have to share.  TKO launched into the fitness scene under 20 years ago in 1996.  When they started they were selling boxing equipment that has evolved into what it is today.  These can be found at Macy’s here.  You can also find more TKO products that include excerise mats, push up bars, excersie gloves, ab wheels, and so much more here

After being on vacation and eating whatever I wanted I decided that it was time to get back into shape because first of all I’m not on vacation anymore and second of all I’m not as active as I was when I was in Poland.  I was using my legs and public transportation a lot and here in the U.S. I use my car for pretty much everything.

**Please note I was given these jump ropes to review, however all opinions are my own.

  1. You look like you had a blast on that pole!

  2. Looks like a fun studio, I had no idea pole dancing was becoming a sport. I know someone that did pole dancing for months and my hubby and I made the mistake of writing her off as a striper (I am not lying, and feel bad about it now) but now I know better and should check things out myself before assuming. What a cute workout outfit too.
