Your Beginner’s Guide to Rocking the Pole
This handbook is a great training guide for all levels, containing loads of information on everything from basic spins and transitions, to conditioning, correct posture and how to put together a routine. It contains dozens of helpful photos, space for your own notes, and tick lists so that you can check off when you nail stuff! This handbook relates to the syllabus we follow here at Emily’s Pole Fitness, but is suitable for beginners worldwide!

If you’re loving your pole classes and want to get some practice in at home, it’s vitally important to get a high-quality, safe and reputable pole. There are a number of good brands out there, but also an awful lot of cheap, knock-off and frankly dangerous poles that a serious pole enthusiast would not look twice at. There are many low-priced poles with a reputation for snapping or falling, and you cannot put a price on your safety. If you have found a second-hand or cheap pole that seems too good to be true, it usually is – we highly recommend that you consult with your instructor before purchasing it.
The brand of pole we recommend at Emily’s Pole Fitness is X-Pole. Emily is an authorised seller of X-Poles, and if you purchase through Emily’s Pole Fitness instead of on the X-Pole website, you will not have any postage and packaging charges to pay. X-Pole is the brand of pole that we use in the studio, so you are already familiar with them. We have six stainless steel poles, and two chrome (the chrome poles are the two shorter ones at the back of the studio). Six of our poles are 45mm, and two are 40mm. If you want to compete and perform, we recommend that you stick to a 45mm (this is the standard size in the pole world). If you have very small hands, you might prefer the 40mm for better grip.
When choosing your pole, you will need to decide:
- Which thickness you prefer (40mm or 45mm)
- The type of finish you want (the most popular and inexpensive is chrome, but other options include brass, powder coated, silicone and titanium gold – the type of finish affects the grip)
- If you would like the option to have your pole both static and spinny (the X-Pole Xpert has static and spin modes, whereas the X-Pole Sport is static only)
- The type of pole you want (the X-pert and Sport poles are tension-mounted between the floor and a joist in a standard ceiling, meaning no drilling or fixings are required; X-stages are free-standing and do not touch the ceiling)
The most popular pole with our students is usually the 45mm X-Pole X-pert in chrome.
X-Poles are bottom-loading, which means that you don’t need a ladder to put them up, and tension-mounted, which means that they won’t damage your ceiling when installed correctly. They have a smooth surface from top to bottom, with no nasty gaps or protrusions at the joins to catch and pinch at skin. From the box, they fit ceiling heights of between 7ft 4ins and 9ft, and they can be made heigher by purchasing extensions. Each pole comes with a detailed instruction manual, and is easy to install, even on uneven floors. If you get stuck, there is a comprehensive troubleshooting section on the X-Pole website, and a lot of helpful videos on YouTube. All poles come with carry cases.
