So, you will need a variety of certified products which will prove handy for safe training.

Available forms of products:

There is a wide variety of products on the market, specially designed for pole dancing. You will find a variety in density such as liquid, powder, chalk, cream, spray and wax. Always remember that those products leave residue on the pole and they should always be cleaned after every practice.

Which product is right for you?

Choosing the right product depends on:

  1. Skin type
  2. Pole material
  3. Climate conditions

Everything you need to know:


Warm-up, temperature and stress coming from our effort to exercise properly, might cause sweating which leads to a “slippery result”. Antiperspirants are designed to prevent you from sweating by drying the palms. Clean and dry your hands after the application.

Usage: Apply a small portion on the palm and spread out on the whole surface. Let it dry for about 15sec without rubbing your hands. Some antiperspirants contain sticky substances to provide a better grip. They can be used in other parts of the body.

Grip aids

Grip Aids for Pole Dancing can help the body have a better grip on the pole by improving control and by saving up stamina. They are used on key points of the body such as legs, sides, armpits etc. (depending on the moves we are about to perform) or/and directly on the pole.

Usage: Make sure you use a tiny portion because otherwise, it will make the pole quite slippery.

Gloves & Ankle Protectors

These special gloves are used in combination with the products above for an optimum grip sensation. Also, they protect hands without restricting our movement. They are useful for people who sweat more than usual. They can be found with an adhesive or regular surface depending on whether you use a static or spinning pole and in a variety of colors and sizes.

Respectively, there are ankle protectors with tack which, besides the better grip, create a protective layer between the pole and legs, giving you the possibility to increase pressure and reduce bruising.

The use of those products appeals to many people as it improves their performance. Nonetheless, it is advisable that you should not depend on those products through your daily practice as it is important to do the drills without the use of grip aids so that you can build up your self-confidence.
