POLE SAFE APPROVED
AJFitness PT&Pole are proud to announce that we are now officially a pole safe approved and have been accepted as a member of the pole safe federation!
Polesafe Trainsafe is dedicated to raising the awareness of teaching and training safely within the Pole Dance and Pole Fitness industry and to develop our industry as a whole.
With the growth of the industry, the desire to get the 'next big trick' has also grown, which has unfortunately seen a shift in some students and instructors skipping through the fundamentals or the 'boring' stuff, to fast track through to the hardest stuff as quickly as possible. This is not safe, and is damaging to the industry and the safety of our discipline. Polesafe is a commitment to the pole world working together to provide safe training to help students and instructors alike, to minimise the risks of injuries and ensure pole stays a safe and fun industry for generations to come.
This means that our studio and instructors have been vetted and approved by the governing body of the pole community and are a part of the wider pole safe community to help ensure AJfitness PT&Pole are the safest and best that we can be. Our policies, procedures, training qualifications, certifications and our teaching ethos have all been looked at and reviewed to ensure we meet the pole safe standard. And as such, we are proud to announce that we have been accepted as a member of the pole safe federation!
HELLO TEAM UP - HELLO NEW TIMETABLE
Following your feedback, we will be trialling a new timetable which will look and feel a bit different. This will mean some slight changes to class times and duration's and will also introduce a booking system to allow us to put on more classes for you.
Stretch and yoga will make a comeback, as will two new classes voted for by you - pole conditioning and pole practise. Our current core pole classes will reduce to 1hr and these new classes will each be 45mins.
The introduction of the Go Team Up booking system will be a greener solution to registers, sign up forms and disclaimers - it will also stop you getting those dreaded burpees for not signing in!
EVERYONE WISHING TO BOOK ON TO ANY CLASSES AT AJFITNESS MUST REGISTER VIA GO TEAM UP
If you have not received a team up welcome email, please let me know and i will arrange for one to be sent.
Team up will give you the flexibility to book in your own make us sessions, and make booking your favourite classes a doddle! Note our cancelation period will increase in line with Team Ups terms of 48hrs notice to qualify with make up sessions - all of which can be managed straight from your phone.
HOW TO BOOK YOUR NEXT COURSE
To book on to the next pole course (starting 22nd July) you will need to follow the steps on your Go Team up welcome email and completing our new paper free health questionnaire. Team up will request your payment details for the next course, all of which will be taken on the date of purchase. If you have not recieved your GoTeam up e-mail, please let me know.
During your next course, you'll be given your 6 core pole classes plus an additional 3 fitness classes to book as you please (from the list below)
- Pole practise
- Pole conditioning
Note team up will automatically book you in for your regular pole class and add your 3 fitness classes to your membership, all you'll need to do is register for your chosen classes on your preferred date. NOTE THESE CLASSES WILL BE VISIBLE FROM 22ND JULY ONWARDS SO BE SURE TO SELECT JULY WHEN LOOKING AT THE CALENDAR :)
For make up sessions, you will need to un-register via team up for the days you cannot attend (giving 48hrs notice) and then book in your make up session via team up.
Once you have completed your three classes, we'd love to hear your feedback, as this will help us to shape our timetable and class offering going forward. Note we will be looking at alternative payment packages which will be announced at a later date.
YOGIS, STRETCHERS & DAYTIME POLERS
Our bookings will change ever so slightly, in that you will now require to buy a class pack rather than paying per class. You'll need to pick your pack and then book in for your desired days.
If for any reason you can't make your session, you will need to un-register via team (giving team ups required 48hrs notice) and then book in your make up session via team up. Follow the link below to pick your pack https://goteamup.com/p/2549315-ajfitness-ptpole/memberships/
SUES POLE COMPETITION

I would both like to thank you all for your amazing support and positivity and the great quotes and pictures you all shared, and some words from Sue -
"I just want to say a HUGE thank you to you all for all the pole photos & competition entries ...being in hospital so often is not much fun but you girls really helped me get through a tough week...and actually made me LMAO at times with some of the pics...oh you should have seen some of the looks I was getting when i almost spat my coffee out I was laughing so hard on an almost silent ward! Thank you all and see you in a few weeks!"
