IT'S NEVER A QUESTION OF "CAN YOU", BUT Will You?
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t always skeptical and had judgments towards “pole fitness”. Before I became educated and trained in this industry, I always had a negative image of “pole”. To me, it was strippers, money…basically what 90% of the human population think when you tell someone you’re either a “pole fitness athlete” or “pole dancer”. The more I got involved in the industry, the more I saw the two sides, exotic and sport.
The inner dancer in me appreciates and admires the exotic side of pole, it’s a form of art, it’s self-expression…it’s confidence. The fitness guru inside of me however, focuses on strength, anatomical terms and inclusivity of all genders.
My approach to fitness the moment I knew this was the industry I’ll forever stay in is inclusivity. But how do you make “pole” an inclusive activity when it’s so geared towards femininity? I found myself stuck between figuring out how I wanted to teach pole and what my role was in this industry.
My goal is to bring pole fitness to the minor demographic. To the men, to the rainbow (LGBTQ+ community), to the kids, to the elderly and so much more. I use pole fitness as a form of cardio and strength training for my clients. My priority is health and fitness and if requested, we can dig into the flow and exotic side of pole!
