Afraid to train alone at home?Aug 28, 2021
Let's say you've only been doing pole for 4 months and you're afraid to do the tricks from the top of the pole.
Let's say you specifically can't let go your hands if you're on top while from the bottom, you're not afraid?
Is it you?
Don't worry, we've all been there. In fact, fear will be with you throughout your poler life.
But it doesn't have to stop you or prevent you from making progress.
If you attend live classes, you can try new or more "dangerous" tricks with your teachers and pole mates and at home do only what you feel most confident in.
If, on the other hand, you only practice at home, buying a pole mat is a good investment. Not only for your physical safety but also for your mental safety.
Every once in a while you can invite a few friends over and share your progress and give you a hand with the elements you are most afraid of or where you don't feel so confident.
Have you thought about training with a friend on videocall? Sure, this person won't be there physically however it allows you to give you cues to each other... "try putting your foot this way, push here, etc."
If you don't live alone, you can practice when someone is home...ok, as long as there is no space issue...watch out for someone else's head! (LOL)
However you decide to do your workouts, the most important thing is to listen well to your body and go slow at the beginning to feel all the contact points on the pole and then have safe holds.
