Pole Fitness Club


Welcome to UCA Pole Fitness Club!

Pole Fitness is about having fun while improving strength, flexibility, and coordination. We run supervised sessions each week with an experienced pole fitness instructor. EVERYONE is welcome in the Pole Fitness Club – regardless of gender, body type, or experience level. We value good team work, encouragement, support, and positivity. Pole Fitness Club is a safe, judgement free space.

Please wear comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement. Shorts are preferred as skin grips well to the pole, however there is no pressure to wear clothing that make you feel uncomfortable. Jewellery must be removed before class, as it can scratch the poles. Make sure to bring water.

We practice on six X-Stage poles.


After the success of last year’s Charity Showcase we are hoping to provide more performance opportunities for members to show off what they have learnt in class.


Thursdays on the Glasshouse dancefloor/W40


Class size is limited due to health and safety.


Taster session is free.


Instructor Bio

Karla Hardy 

Having stumbled across Pole Fitness in 2008 whilst looking for an exercise regime that wouldn’t lead to boredom or excuses not to go, it was soon apparent that this would be a love – love relationship!

She also recently won ‘Best Choreography’ at The Kent Pole Championships 2017. She became a certified Xpert Pole Instructor in 2013 and is a 3 Star Approved Instructor with the Pole Dance Community. Karla enjoys working on fluid combinations and tricks on the pole and has a supportive and encouraging teaching style.
