Well, I think you should. A lot of it is physical. You have to be strong to keep yourself afloat at the top of the pool. It’s the biggest physical challenges. A lot of people say, “oh, pole dancing is no sport.” A lot of people feel that. But it is a sport for sure and I think a lot of people can appreciate the physical element. But I wouldn’t have changed much. When you’re on the top you’re going to feel your body get tired quicker than others. You’re going to have to get more prepared for that, so that’s something I learned at the bottom of the pool. But once you get on there, I think it’s totally worth it. It is an experience you will never forget. I think it’s the most rewarding type of sport you can give yourself.
Can you be the last person ever to pole dance the way you did?
Do you think pole dancing would be an option for you?
Probably not at this point — definitely not for a few more seasons. Not now because I can’t do it. I don’t think I’m as strong as I am because the last time I had any training was over 10 years ago. But there’s no question it still has value. Some people would argue you can get better by just doing something like boxing or football. It’s not quite the same but it’s still a fun way to get in shape and get on stage at the top of the pool. It’s always fun to be on top but there are some really intense challenges that need to be prepared for. I’m thinking about something like that for 2018 but I would have to go out of shape in the pool.
Do you have any regrets?
Of course every move I made looked good because those were me moving my hips to get higher and higher. The next moves I made looked a bit silly. Every move I made was really fun. A lot of times if I’m doing anything for two or three moves I look silly then because I’m not moving my hips or trying to put the energy in the proper place. But I think in the end what matters is going into the water and having fun and trying something new. It’s not like it is a sport that anyone will ever do again. I think a lot of people say it’s no sport but that’s just not the case at all.
