There were quite a few pole dancers on America's Got Talent. One of them was male. Pole dancing requires a lot of strength and coordination, similar to ballet or martial arts. I would most definably call it a workout.

Cannot even imagine how to approach my friends with the suggestion. Think I need a new group of friends cause this does sound like fun.

My sister took classes, she loved it. She would always come home feeling sore, so it is a good workout. But I think I'll stick to yoga
