Pole dancing obviously has a sexy reputation, but the sport is actually harder than it looks. Simply lifting yourself up and around a pole, not to mention completing tricks and full routines, requires a lot of core and arm strength. Pole fitness is so much of a workout that organized competitions exist, during which trained athletes can show off their skills.
Take this Beauty and the Beast-themed routine from the 2018 Pole Sport Organization Liberty in July last year. A talented performer told the classic Disney story with a series of moves (and a costume change), fit to blow your mind. Watch her full routine above, and enjoy how effortless she makes it look. We bet you’ve never seen Belle like this before.
