I have been an athlete all my life and for as long as I can remember I have been passionate about health, wellness and fitness. I grew up competing in all kinds of sports including swimming, golfing, soccer, gymnastics and cheerleading. As an adult, I enjoy yoga, snowskiing, spinning, pilates, Zumba, running, weight training, and pole fitness. I began pole fitness in 2010 when my personal trainer shared with me that she takes pole dancing to stay in shape. She convinced me to give it a try. I signed up for my first pole class with doubts and misconceptions, but after my first class... I was hooked. Pole fitness provides a workout environment unlike alternative exercise regimens. What I love about pole fitness is that it combines my love for music with feminine sensuality, strength, dance and flexibility all while achieving a higher level of athleticism. In addition, pole fitness provides me a safe environment to freely express my individual sensuality, to be more confident with my body, to push myself to learn new tricks and achieve things I never thought possible all while having fun and getting into better shape. I am honored to share my love and passion for pole fitness with my students.
