Solent Fitness & Aerial Arts is launching TWO beginner pole courses in September!
If you have been thinking about giving pole a try, then these classes are perfect for you - we will be working through the beginner syllabus, which includes spins, tricks and dance elements.

Our last course sold out, so this time we have come back with two!

You can book the classes on the following links:

No classes today as we are off to Lexi's wedding! 😍💍

Looking forward to a beautiful day and a cracking party! Stunning weather too!


Bookings are still open for our Parent and Child Hoop Workshop!

Saturday 1st October at 13:30

This workshop is for you if your child does hoop and you want to have a go (or they want you to!)

Or perhaps you do hoop and you want your child to have a go - perhaps they reckon it'll be easy?

Or maybe both of you already do hoop and you want to train together!

This is a FUN session with lots of laughs! Please note, it can be siblings, or aunt/uncle/nephew/niece or any other relation, but one adult, one child! No experience necessary!

You must book at least 2 spaces, one for yourself and one for the child. You are welcome to book and bring more than one child to join in.

We have a few announcements to make about the booking system, pricing structure and timetable - there’s loads of information but we are just going to summarise the main points here for a briefer read! To read the full info please visit:


We are making the switch to GymCatch from classes on the 2nd of September. Link to the new system is here:
Julie’s Pilates and Aerial Pilates are moving to her own system.

GymCatch has an app and uses Stripe, like TeamUp. You can also have children’s accounts as sub profiles under a parent account. The app allows you to contact us directly there too.

The cancellation period is staying at 12hrs - classes cancelled within this time, and no-shows will forfeit the class fee/membership. This *may* be increased to 24hrs in the future. (Workshops and private lessons have a 24 hour cancellation period.)

Recently purchased memberships will be transferred to the new system. Some people have old unused memberships and credit on their account which will not be transferred but we DO have the records to apply these credits to use on classes if you would like. Please check your teamup account before the 20th August. This also applies to people who had to stop mid-course due to COVID and haven’t been back yet!


On GymCatch there will be the option to book single classes but also buy bundles of classes (like the class packs we’ve had) and we are finally in a position to bring back the monthly membership options from pre-COVID times! Do check the Ts and Cs of all memberships/classes when you book.

We’ve not had a price increase on pole/aerial classes in over 5 years, but we are now having to increase the cost of the PAYG sessions to £12 - HOWEVER we have taken a range of measures to try to make sure this doesn’t impact our regular students. The new membership option gives you similar value classes (and better!) as the class passes we have had on teamup. Essentially you can choose how often you are coming to class (or would like to) and go with that membership, and it runs for 3 months, giving you pole and aerial classes for £9 each, or less.
Fitness classes, private classes, circus and youth hoop has NOT been impacted.

Check out all of the options on our blog post or on GymCatch.


There are a range of changes, here are some key points:
Youth hoop times are changing slightly - do check dates & times when booking!
Saturday afternoons will now be workshops by various instructors and practice sessions. These workshops give you an opportunity to work on something specific, they will be a variety of ages, styles and abilities.
All adult classes that are NOT beginners or advanced, are now mixed ability. This is to give you maximum flexibility on which classes you feel you can attend.


That’s the end of our announcements but do check out the blog post for more details!

All of the instructors are still finding their feet and getting used to using the new system so please be patient if there is an issue! If you need any help or have any questions please DM us on here or email us on [email protected].
