Heather from Rock of Love might have made pole-dancing look easy, but it’s actually a pretty strenuous workout. A woman named Debbie Plowman in Yorkshire, England, who was taking a pole-dancing fitness class called called KEEP-FIT, fell on her head while trying to do a move. She broke her neck and damaged her spinal cord. She is currently on a ventilator and only able to communicate via eye movements. It’s estimated that she will need six months to recover, so her friends and family have started a trust to raise money for her care and recovery.
This just confirms my belief that all forms of exercise are bad for you. I’ll be in a corner with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s if you need me.
