Default Pole Fitness

Hey everyone! I recently got a membership to my local pole fitness studio which offers a variety of classes every day focusing on pole tricks, cardio, conditioning, stretching, etc. I have fallen in love with this hobby, but let's face it - I'm down to shred some weight. I've read success stories of plus size women taking up pole and losing a ton of weight - and please believe me when I say weightloss is an added bonus, I get so much more out of these classes than just weightloss. But I can't wear my Apple Watch or a Fitbit while on the pole because it affects my grip and gets stuck on the pole which isn't conducive to spinning! Any other ladies out there who have found a way to track calories burned? I usually fasten my Apple Watch to my tank top and sports bra strap to at least get the steps, but I really want to be able to track heart rate too so I get a more accurate calorie burn count. Ideas?

Why sully a good time by trying to measure how many calories you burn? If you're exercising, sweating, getting your heart rate up, and feeling some good muscle soreness the next day then just enjoy it.
