About Ottawa Pole Fitness

Established in 2008, we are Ottawa's premiere pole fitness studio located at 1066 Somerset Street West, just minutes from downtown. We have two beautiful, spacious studios with over 2000 square feet and a total of 17 competition grade 45mm spinning/static X-poles. Studio A on the main level has 6 poles for small group classes and a comfy lounge where you can relax and network with your friends. Studio B on the lower level is our larger space; it has 11 poles for group classes, workshops and parties. We also use this studio for Aerial Silks and Hoop. Both studios have vibrant colours, wall-to-wall mirrors, intimate lighting, free WiFi and are perfect for learning pole fitness in a fun exercise studio environment.

Pole dancing is a fantastic way to lose weight, improve muscle tone, enhance flexibility and coordination, increase strength, and build endurance while increasing one's self-esteem. Anyone can learn pole dancing regardless of age, size, or athletic background.

We offer a high energy, sexy and fun environment for people who are tired of trudging along on a treadmill or pushing weights in a gym. Our goal is to inspire, motivate and empower students to feel at ease and comfortable while creating the body they want. We offer this to you in a fun, safe, supportive and a non-judgmental environment. Although most of our clientele is female our classes are open to both men and women.

Our classes are designed to suit all types of students from beginners to advanced levels. Pole fitness classes are 6 weeks in length, and consist of a weekly 1 hour session of professional hands-on instruction combined with warm-up and cool down.

Students in session can come to free daily practice. The instructors follow a course schedule of weekly moves that incorporate turns, lifts, non-weight bearing maneuvers and combinations, so each student gains strength, flexibility and pole confidence to their desired level. On completion of each session the student can then progress to the next level.

We also offer a variety of Workshops such as Aerial Hoop and Silks, Chair Dance and special Events including our in-house showcase and studio photoshoots. Pole Parties for all occasions you can book online and free pole practice time daily for our students who are currently in session.
