I think I might go for it, it really does sound fun/satisfying. I think I'm just a bit worried that everyone else there will be really athletic and be able to learn a lot quicker than me, but that's a pretty rubbish reason for not trying
Did you do any other kind of sport/fitness stuff before you started?

I've been doing it since September (but only during term time). I definitely recommend going for it - I love it, it's so much fun. It's a great way to meet loads of different people, and there's a massive sense of satisfaction when you master a new trick.
Although be warned, after the first couple of classes, you will ache like hell! Also, you'll end up with some fairly random bruising
I read about the bruising, and some of the reactions from doctors/nurses I suppose it must get better, though? The girls on Youtube don't seem to have any bruises, anyway.

The friends I have who do it are all fairly serious gymnasts (competing on the national circuit) who also do things like circus acrobatics. And they seem keen on it as an extension of that - they like turning themselves upside down I mean I'm sure there are poledancing societies where it's dancing around a pole... but equally there are ones where it's gymnastics with a pole, and there's nothing inherently sexual about that, no matter how it started.
