The regular gym routine was not for me. I needed something fun that didn't feel like a traditional workout but was still challenging for me. After my first class, I knew pole fitness was exactly what I was looking for.

I would like every new student to know that our pole community is always supportive and is the most welcoming community I have ever been a part of. Pole is for everyone no matter your background, body type or level of fitness. I was nervous my first class, but my instructor was so supportive and fun that I left class feeling amazing.

You can do it! Everyone moves at their own pace and your pace is the right one! You are amazing. You are beautiful. I love you.... Yes, YOU!

My favorite pole memory is a tie between two memories because each one had a huge impact on my life. The first was winning the Dangerous Curves Plus Size Pole Competition in 2016. That was my proudest pole moment. I had put in countless hours rehearsing and building my routine and it paid off. My pole family supported me the whole way and I couldn't be more thankful.
