Jayne's in pole position
WHEN single mum Jayne Tingle used her love of fitness to become a top bodybuilder she opted for the most extreme exercise she could find - pole dancing.
The 28 year-old mum studied American DVDs for all the latest moves and adapted them to create new routines.
The tough regime of stretching and movement has paid off for the sports science graduate - at the National Amateur Body Building Association championships earlier this year she won the Miss Figure Toned title.
She found she was hooked on her new hobby. So now Jayne, from Brownlow Road, Horwich, Bolton, is taking a year off from bodybuilding competitions to teach other women her own brand of pole dancing, which she calls Polefunk.
"I'd always loved going to the gym," said Jayne, who has a four-year-old son, Kail.
"I got into bodybuilding but was looking for a really good all-round exercise.
"I used to think pole dancing was sleazy, like stripping, until I tried it for myself. It's the ultimate workout because it involves all the muscles."
She also finds that women of all ages enjoy pole dancing. She said: "I've got teenagers and ladies in their 50s in my classes and they all love it."
Jayne runs Polefunk classes at Bolton Arena and Virgin Active in Bolton.
