This is perhaps one of my own personal favorite hobbies. For women of all ages, but for women in their 30’s too. You can look into a dance class like pole dancing or belly dancing in your local area. Or move the furniture out of the way in your own living room and dance like no one’s watching.

Don’t yet have a pole? It’s actually super easy to set up a mini pole dance studio in your own living room or bedroom with a portable pole like this one from X-pole or like this one you can snag on Amazon.
