Editor's Note: this studio was previously known as Live Once Pole Dance & Fitness Studio
I have been attending Live Once for several years now and have come to think of the studio as a home away from home. The facility is always clean and there is a variety of equipment to use in each class. The fitness classes are very challenging and are always different so your body doesn't get used to any particular workout. There is a variety of classes and times to choose from so you can vary your workouts and not get bored. There are two types of pole dance classes to choose from. You can take classes that will teach you a routine which is always fun and there are classes that only teach you the spins and moves. All of the instructors are very knowledgeable and encourage you at your own pace. I love all of the classes and have seen amazing results!!! I would say this is the best studio in town. Give it a try and you'll become addicted!!!!
I've been going to the studio for a few years when the main offerings were dance classes and pole fit. Up until that point, I had worked out, but hit a plateau and I thought my arms were just meant to be shapeless. Elisabeth's classes were different - using your own bodyweight along with some challenging combos - you are guaranteed a good workout. I feel leaner and stronger. External validation took place last winter when I was reunited with some family members who were amazed at the difference in my physique. While the feedback was great, I go b/c I like the feeling of being fit. The classes at Live Once are small and I am energized by everyone's collective motivation to make the most of our time. Elisabeth changes the classes so you don't get too complacent in your exercise and she seems to value her students' feedback because she is always trying out new classes and adding new ones to meet demand. You could go to chain gym for much less - but the experience is incomparable.
Live Once Pole Dance and Fitness Studio is awesome! Everytime I attend a class there I know I will get a quality workout from great instructors. The atmosphere is fantastic and there is a variety of classes to choose from!
I have enjoyed attending Live Once Pole Dance and Fitness Studio for a couple of years now. The fitness classes are challenging and different each time. This is good because by keeping your body challenged, you will see quicker positive results, whatever your goal is. There are several types of fitness classes to choose from and a variety of times to sign up for. Elisabeth is very knowledgeable in dance and fitness and encourages everyone to work hard at their own level. Instructors are all certified and do a great job at keeping the fun in the classes and help you by correcting posture, form and answering any questions. I enjoyed some personal training with Elisabeth and have seen a gain in my strength and stamina which helps me in my other sports. I have also been able to loose some unwanted fat! This is definitely a place I would recommend for general fitness as well as pole dancing.
I have been working out at Live Once since it opened, and I love it! The classes are challenging and have kept me coming back for more! Elisabeth is a wonderful instructor who is motivating and keeps all the classes fun and the results are visible on all the girls that attend the classes at Live Once. The studio is clean and cozy, and you feel instantly comfortable when you walk in the door. Elisabeth and her staff have helped me maintain a great level of fitness and are always adding new and fun workouts to keep my muscles challenged. The variety of classes in the studio is great, there is always something new to try on any given day. The classes are a perfect size and all the instructors are willing to give you tips before and after classes. The class sign up on line is fantastic and allows me to sign up instantly and plan my exercise weeks ahead of time. This is a great place to go for challenging, motivating and fun workouts. You will be hooked after trying one class!!!
I found with gym memberships I would pay my monthly fee, but always make excuses for not going. This doesn't happen with Live Once because you sign up for classes in advance, and then you can't back out without 24hours notice. This meant that even when I was tired or just lazy I still had to get my butt to the gym! There is an awesome online registration program that allows me to check class availability from anywhere and book myself into classes.
Live Once also keeps me motivated with tons of different classes. Pole Dance is obviously my favourite and Elisabeth keeps finding ways to challenge us! She is an excellent instructor who knows just how hard to push you, but she also modifies some moves to help us reach our goals.
The main thing that keeps me going back to Live Once is the atmosphere. All the girls are super friendly and Elisabeth is always going out of her way to foster a family-like atmosphere. She is always organizing parties or nights out.....anything to get us all together!
I started going to Elizabeth's studio when she first opened, I have had my busy points of life when I had no time, and times when I attended six classes a week. I was in the best shape of my life at 50 from Elizabeth's classes, and she even helped me lose 18 lbs!!! I could not get beyond level 2 in the dance, but taking it three times was a blast! and the exercise classes, love em!!! for a completely different workout in a great atmosphere, give it a try, its the best place for exercise I ever found.
ok..... let's call a spade a spade here.... I have been in dance for over 40 years... there is a way to teach with class and quality, and Elisabeth has it. She has substance (a lot!) for even the most basic level of pole dance. Not just twirling around the pole while your feet are on the floor, she actually has a set amount of spins (airborne) to accomplish before moving on. If you are comfortable to rest at that level, then stay, she changes up the choreography, and it becomes great fun for students to remain at more basic levels. If you are there to soclialize and figure it's easy, then you're not looking for a dance workout...quite frankly, in any given dance program, very few students will aspire to get way up to pro or even very advanced levels. The beauty of what Elisabeth offers is to have a workout even at base level, in a gorgeous studio that is always kept clean. For anyone who is extremely critical about any given studio, then please try to open one up... or be very grateful to have one like Elisabeth's in Milton.
As someone who has worked out for years in a variety of gyms, I can say that Live Once is by far the best studio I have been a part of. All of the staff are knowledgably, friendly and bring their own uniqueness to each class, making it impossible to get bored. Even if you do the same class each week it’s different each time so your muscles never get too comfortable with the same moves. The facility itself is extremely clean, has a variety of equipment and an overall positive, motivating vibe. Live Once is like Milton’s little secret!
I've been at the gym for years and found I couldn't get any more results until I joined the live once fitness studio. I have more strength and endurance than before. Not only is there a great variety of classes to choose from, the classes are fun and full of energy and the staff and instructors are also positive and motivating.
