During a recent interview with PEOPLE magazine, Jennifer Lopez discussed the challenges she faced during her pole dancing training. Despite having experience in mastering various skills such as martial arts and shooting, pole dancing proved to be an entirely different level of difficulty. The physicality of the training resulted in bruises, chafing, and burns. It’s worth noting that body makeup or tights were not allowed during pole dancing as sliding down the pole requires skin-to-pole contact. Despite the physical toll it took on her body, Lopez’s commitment to the training paid off, allowing her to excel in her performance.

Jennifer Lopez has been praised for her role as Ramona in the movie Hustlers. Her pole dancing skills were particularly impressive, but the attention and recognition she’s received have left her feeling a bit overwhelmed. Jennifer was also a co-producer of the film and playing Ramona taught her valuable lessons about independence and self-reliance, which she found resonated deeply with her. This theme of being limitless inspired Jennifer to stay strong in her own life. Even though she is happily engaged, Jennifer feels more personally empowered than ever before because she has worked hard to gain confidence and inner peace.
