Is pole dancing the new retirement sport?

When I told my partner how inspired I was by this video, his first response was ‘where do you want the pole?’

Greta Pontarelli is 66 and killing it!

She is able to carry out these moves on a skinny, slippery pole, at the age of 66 – that is an amazing achievement.

This incredible performance immediately makes me want to step up my own fitness level. After all, if someone else can do it, why can’t I?

Pole dancing as a retirement sport?

I considered putting pole dancing skills on the bucket list. Imagine the fun you could have showing off in a retirement home. Beats watching television, anytime:)

Maybe one day. For now, I decided to watch it for motivational, rather than aspirational, reasons.

I am happy that when I watch Greta’s performance it gives me the motivation to go to the gym. As impressive as it would be to be able to pull off these moves at my age, feeling inspired is good enough for now.
