I know, it's 2104 and the times are changing, but the minute that you start talking to me about dancing on a pole I assume that you are a stripper. Apparently that is not always the case, and Colorado's 2013 Pole Champion (yes there is such a thing), Melanie Piek, is proving that in Ft. Collins. 

The Coloradoan reports that Piek was bored with more mainstream workouts so she took a pole dancing fitness class and was hooked. So, two years ago she quit her corporate job and opened up the first of what would be three pole studios throughout Colorado, including Fort Collins, Longmont and Boulder.

Vertical Fusion, her studio, is open to both ladies and men. Yes, guys you too can learn the art of dancing on a pole! On the website it says "The “sexy” level is up to you," so basically to me that means whether or not you want to take your skills to the nearest gentelmans club.

Regardless of what you do with your new found pole skills, after watching the video below, at least you know you'll have a hot teacher who definitely knows how to work a pole!
