Strange Class

There is a very weird class at the gym on Sundays. Women on huge transparent heels and in tiny little shorts stand in bizarre poses. Then they shift slightly and stand in different yet still bizarre poses. It looks like they are preparing either for a beauty contest or for a career in prostitution. 

The class is not listed on the brochure and I feel too shy to ask.

    It sounds like a pole dance class. It’s supposed to be good for your abs.

    Depending on how heavily muscled or spray tanned they are, it is either a pole dancing class or a female body building tournament class. And yes, both involve scanty clothing and clear heels. Tournament days also involve weeks of weighing chicken breasts and dehydration a couple of days before. In the off-season, competitive female body builders look like normal people.
