Are there any restrictions on joining classes?
Our classes are open to everyone, male, female, old and young. However, all new students will be required to fill in and sign a disclaimer which will require you to declare any existing medical conditions. An existing medical condition will not necessarily prevent you from participating in aerial fitness classes. However, as with any form of exercise you can put in as much or as little as you are able to. Aerial Fitness will require you to exert yourself physically and you are responsible for ensuring that you do not over-exert yourself and that you only exercise within your abilities. We do not allow anyone under the age of 16 years old to take part in any of our Aerial Fitness classes only private lessons, which would require a parent to be accompanied for their first class.
How many poles are there and how big are your classes?
We have up to 6 poles available in class, we never have more than 3 people to a pole (usually 2 people per pole)
I’ve never danced before! Will I be able to do Aerial Fitness classes?
Of course! You don’t need any dancing or fitness experience at all. At your first class we will help you determine your level of experience and fitness, and work at whatever pace you are comfortable with.
What should I wear?
Ideally for pole you will need to wear shorts and a t-shirt or vest. It’s not necessary to wear shorts for your first lesson or two but you’ll need bare skin as you progress to be able to stick to the pole. We recommend that even if you are not sure about wearing shorts you should put some in your bag and bring them to class anyway – we find people quickly get over their fear of shorts when they get annoyed by not being able to do certain tricks! For Aerial classes please ensure you have the tops of your arms and backs of your knees are covered, so ideally fitted leggings or cotton trousers, and pair of leg warmers.– this is a lot more comfortable for you!
Do I have to book in advance?
We always ask that you book your space in advance so we can ensure we have spaces, you are welcome to turn up to class without booking – however if we are already full we will have to ask you to come back to another class.
How do I book a class?
Via email or messenger fb.
Do I need to come with a partner or can I come on my own?
It’s entirely up to you! You are welcome to come along in groups or on your own. A partner is certainly not essential. All of our students and instructors are very friendly and will ensure that you are teamed with other students of similar ability during classes. If you would like to come along as a large group you must ensure that you all book in advance so that we can make sure there are enough spaces in class. Alternatively you can contact us by text, phone or e-mail to enquire about booking a private class or party for a large group.
I’m really unfit! Will I be able to Aerial Fitness?
Of course, although you will soon become fit through Aerial Fitness! All of our classes cater for all abilities so it won’t matter if you haven’t exercised in a while.
I’m not very strong, will I be able to Aerial Fitness
Absolutely! As with any form of exercise you may find aerial / pole fitness hard work to begin with, but you will very quickly build up your strength!
I’m under 18, can I still come to classes?

What happens if I can't attend a class?
If you can't attend your class, please notify us in writing via TEXT or EMAIL or FACEBOOK). You can do this up to 24 hours before your class and be eligible to re-arrange your class for another time. Within 24 hours would be chargeable.
On a course, you can rearrange ONE class (subject to availability) or receive ONE class credit towards your next booking. Inside 8 hours please let us know by text or email so that your instructor and fellow students are not waiting for you at the beginning of class.
Classes are popular, and often have waiting lists, so cancelling your class with as much notice as possible, will allow another student to take your place.
There are NO REFUNDS for any classes.
Once booked, if you miss a class then unfortunately you will forfeit the class.
We cannot carry over or refund classes.
I'm pregnant; can I join a class?
No. We recommend getting doctors confirmation prior to booking.
I have an injury; can I join a class?
It depends. A doctors note is recommended following any kind or injury or surgery that could be affected by exercise. If you're unsure then contact us to discuss things further.
Will moisturiser help me to spin around the pole?
NOOOO!! We have a strict policy to avoiding any moisturisers, lotions or oils for 24 hours before your class. It will make it very difficult to grip for you and anyone sharing your pole.
If we haven’t managed to answer your question here please email us and we’ll give you all the info you need to know
Although at JD Aerial Fitness Academy we pride ourselves on making classes fun, pole fitness and aerial fitness are potentially extremely dangerous sports.
You must ensure that you listen to your Instructor. If any student is seen to be ignoring instructions, they will be asked to leave.
We are fully trained to teach in the safest, most effective way possible, so you must only ever take instructions from your Instructor.
Teaching other students moves or attempting moves that you have not yet been taught is strictly prohibited and will result in dismissal from the class without a refund.
