If you’ve ever taken a class at Polecats Manila, you’ve probably heard the teachers say, time and again, that you are absolutely, positively NOT allowed to wear any lotion, moisturizers or oils on the day of your pole class. Not only will you slip off the pole with every trick, you’re also going to ruin the experience of anyone else who will get on the pole you placed your slick self on.
You can just imagine the sadness a lot of women felt when they first heard this rule. No lotion leads to dry and flaky skin, which no one wants of course! But the more in love with pole you become, the more seriously you take this rule. It becomes a choice between smooth skin and not falling off.
And then we stumbled upon this little bottle that gave us a way around this No Lotion Rule in pole studios. We tried it for a month and came to this conclusion: it’s possible to have healthy skin AND be able to pole dance! Healthy skin is grippy skin, that’s the truth, and it’s all thanks to Pole Physics! If you have a serious love of pole AND healthy skin, this is exactly what you need to get your hands on. Slather it on 7 hours before your pole session and you are golden.
Pole Physics is specifically engineered for dancers. It’s fully absorbed by your skin, and it doesn’t give you an oily film when you sweat. Not only is it great for dancing, it’s also perfect for our tropical weather!
There’s nothing more we can say — you’re going to have to try it to see for yourself Pole Physics is available at the Polecats Manila Studio for the promo price of P1,200! It comes in Unscented, Scented and Tanning. Everything a pole dancer could ever need Grab a bottle now and enhance your pole dancing experience!

Poling is a little bit more complicated in Manila. The humidity and unpredictable weather can make for slippery situations on the pole – and that’s something we don’t want, especially during performances! We’ve tried all sorts of grip aids – pastes, powders and whathaveyous. Most of them were pretty effective but still depended on how sweaty a person is, or how clammy the weather gets.
Finally, we got our hands (literally) on some iTac 2, and it was love at first grip. It was grippy enough to keep us on the pole, but still allowed us to spin smoothly! It was great with sweaty hands or dry skin, and what’s more – it didn’t leave any kind of funky marks on our clothes or skin, so we still looked great in pictures
But don’t take our word for it – try it out yourself! Contact us at the details on the poster below

For this episode for Fitness Fridays, Kristine Warren drops by for a couple of tips on how to keep our muscles in tip-top shape. Kristine is a long time student (and friend!) of the Polecats, and a professional physical therapist and official PT of the Polecats. Read on and get those muscles ready for another round of pole madness!
With rehearsals for Stellar 2 going into full swing, we need to make sure that we keep our bodies, particularly our muscles, ready to take the challenges that each pole class brings.
1. To prevent muscle cramps, make sure you take enough fluids throughout the day. We need at least 2 liters of fluid (water/ sports drinks) for basic organ function. Muscle cramps are usually caused by dehydration, lack of minerals in your diet and muscle fatigue.
And you guys know how much we LOVE lightwater! All the great stuff minus the sodium
2. Rest is important for muscle recovery. It is during rest that we get “supercompensation”, meaning we get stronger muscles. In sports rehabilitation, rest does not mean lying down or sitting on the couch. We want to keep the muscles and the surrounding tissues moving. One way to do this is by getting a tennis ball or golf ball, and just roll it under your foot for a about a minute, 2 to 3 times on each foot. When you do this, the fascia (tissue covering the muscles) is relaxed or untangled relieving muscle tightness. Before you roll the ball under your foot, bend over and try reaching for your toes, stop when you feel tightness. After rolling the ball, do the same movement and check how much easier or more range you have now.
More for Fitness Fridays every week, so keep on checking in for more great tips from Kristine and other fun stuff with the Polecats
