Back in February of this year, I contacted Fitbit with a request for developing their exercise options on the app so it would include options for pole dancing and aerial. After a lot of loyal fellow pole and aerialists favoring my proposal, as of July 11, 2016 the Fitbit app development team has reviewed and submitted my idea for evaluation!

I was tired of having to find alternative options to tracking my pole workouts. To me, pole is different than running through a traditional circuit style calisthenic routine. I want to see my progress in my weekly fitness overview for what it is. I also feel that major fitness merchants that produce items such as fitness trackers need to acknowledge pole dancing and aerial fitness as a legitimate fitness activity. We shouldn't have to label what we're doing by another term. It's 2016. We live in a time where being fit is an acceptable lifestyle. How we got here and how we maintain our lifestyle shouldn't be something to be ashamed of. Ever.
