Vertical Pole Rocks!

This is our X - Pole we now have a X - Stage Lite.
I always wanted to try gymnastics when I was younger.  I played soccer, baseball, football, basketball, track n field, cross country, tennis, swimming, but no gymnastics.  Doing flips was what interested me the most when I was younger.  Now being strong and having a killer core is more interesting that I'm older.  Vertical Pole lends itself to strength, stamina, and flexibility.  The trick I want to master on the vertical pole is the flag.  The flag is where the vertical pole performer is extended from the pole by their arms horizontally.
Attempting a flag

This has been one of the most fun and effective exercise I have ever tried. I always thought that I had to go to a gym or be part of fitness club to get the fitness results that I want. Then I tried using a vertical pole and it puts my body weight to work creating strength and tone. Combining static pole moves with dynamic pole moves can also provide an excellent cardiovascular workout.  

As much of a flag as I could do.
