Yes this is a real thing.
Apparently they do “pole fitness” while listening to contemporary Christian music. You can’t make this stuff up.
Pole Dancing for Jesus

HOUSTON – Pole dancing as a workout is nothing new. Over the past few years, independent studios have popped up all over the country, but there is a very unique type of pole dancing class here in our area.
It’s called Pole Fitness for Jesus.
You’re probably thinking: “How on Earth can you mix pole dancing with Jesus?”
According to one studio in Spring, you can definitely mix the two.
“I was actually a dancer for 3 years, probably 7 years ago or so. I did it for awhile, it’s not something I felt very rewarded with, but to each his own and it was just something I decided I didn’t want to do anymore so I decided to take the part that I liked about that and bring it here but it’s so much fitness, I don’t teach women to be strippers,” said owner/instructor of Best Shape of Your Life Crystal Deans.
Every 2md Sunday of the month, Crystal Deans invites female church-goers into her pole dancing studio.
“On Sundays, we do pole fitness for Jesus. We do the upbeat contemporary Christian music because people have to bring their church program to get into the class, so we basically are just continuing the whole worship thing here.”
