9 Months, 4 Courses and a Breakup

July 26, 2017

Nine months ago, I was crying in Penang because I had just recently broken up with a friend (haha luh ang drama kasi namin ni Tonix, pero bati na kami ngayon). I let myself cry until I was okay. Then I said, "Okay lang yan, I now have more free time. Maybe I should learn pole and commit to it."

After an hour of deliberating which pole school in Singapore to join, I decided on Studio Sands  I don't remember exactly what it was that made me choose it but I'm glad I did.

Nine months later, I have taken Beginner 2, Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2 and Intermediate 2.5 courses with them, and currently in an on-going 5th course. And as a supplement, I have enrolled in Crossfit, which is another monster workout in itself, to help myself reach some pole goals. It's almost funny how the body craves for more pain. Totoo nga that it's addictive. 

Anyway, I'm posting this because after just a short amount of time, pole has changed my outlook drastically. It requires a shit-ton amount of discipline and practice. I'm still not very good at it now, but I look and feel a lot better and stronger than I did 9 months ago. So that's a win!

Bonus: Another really great thing that came out of it was having my classmates, now friends, who are always there to support me, and each other. There's something about going through pain collectively that bonds girls! 

Lastly, (yes, I'm not done haha) I'm encouraging friends to try it too! Even just one class. Check if the nearest pole school has trial classes and decide if it's something you would want for yourself. It's really fun, I'm telling you! 

If you're in Singapore, check out Studio Sands' website  to see if there's a course that interests you. It is located at the second floor of 23 Kampong Bahru Rd. I am usually there every Thursday night. Come and say hello!
