Chris

With a background in strength training and fitness model competition, Blue Phoenix took to the pole in early 2012 and has never looked back. He danced as part of Le Male (Melbourne), and is a member of the Aussie Pole Boys and their show – Voyeur, in Sydney. He has long admired the combination of strength, gymnastics, dance, flexibility and acrobatic aspects of pole, and brings the combination of these to his choreography and classes. 


Chris instructs the following:
  • FLEXIBILITY & TONING (Open Class)
  • This class is for anyone who wants to improve their flexibility on and off the pole. Flexibility & Toning will work on your whole body flexibility and increase your strength. You will then be able to apply your flexy gains & strength directly to your pole-work!
     
    If you aren't flexible at all, that's ok! This is exactly what this class is there for. If you're super flexible, we provide variations to make it harder for you. 
     
    This is a really great addition to your weekly fitness routine, you'll notice a big improvement with your fitness gains.
     
    WHAT TO WEAR: Socks, leggings, leg warmers or knee pads are a great idea to cover your knees for floor-based stretches.
