The Fitness Hangout has been open for 9 years. It was set up by Jo Dandridge who has been in the fitness industry for over 20 years. We are a large studio with 8 Xpoles over 4 metres high, 6 Aerial rigging points, and 14 hammocks. We pride ourselves on being more than just a studio – we are a community and a safe space for people to come and forget all their troubles. We run a large selection of pole and aerial classes including Pole Dancing, Aerial Hoop, Silks, Aerial Yoga and Pilates, Stretch and Strength and kids circus classes. All the instructors are experts in their fields with a very diverse range in teaching backgrounds to give our students a variety of class feel. We have seen many of our students successfully compete in amateur competitions, and we hold regular showcases to allow students who don’t wish to compete but like to perform show off what they can do. Several of the Instructors also hold Championship titles in Pole and Aerial. The Fitness Hangout has hosted workshops and Intensives with many UK and International Pole Stars.
