Kids? Grandkids? If so brag a bit: I have a beautiful daughter, age 15 and an equally handsome son, age 9. Both are my greatest achievements!
Your motto: “Be happy with what you have and not what you don’t have.”
Essentially, live life with a grateful heart!
How long have you been pole dancing at Venus Pole Fitness? I have been a part of the Venus family for the past 9 months.
Have you undergone a transformation (physically, emotionally or both!)?
Wow, where do I start??? When I started with Venus, thought I was just going to be a “boot camper.” “Oh boy! was I wrong.” I have participated in almost every class offered along with boot camp 3 days a week regularly. I am in the best shape I have been in the past 15 years. GBBE is the way to go ladies; for awesome results. Not only am I taking care of my body through exercise (which is fun) but have changed my eating to a healthier lifestyle. I love it! Add that together with the results of dropping 2 dress sizes; you have one HAPPY GIRL!! What a confidence booster!
Did you have any previous dance or fitness training before starting pole?
I was very active in my teens and early 20s. I loved participating in all kinds of sports from softball to water skiing. In high school, I was a “rah, rah” and I enjoyed it! Our squad focused primarily on dance routines; which dance is my first love. I was able to be a part of a local studio for a few years as well.
What made you decide to take classes?
Honestly, all the thanks go to Groupon! Signed up for boot camp and the rest is history.
Favorite class and why?
Pole Flow… add Strip or Sensual in front of the name and it’s even better.
What is it that you LOVE about our studio?
First and foremost… the instructors and Diane. Thank you to each one of them. The studio offers so much for a woman to be able to create her own style in her fitness journey.
Platforms, barefeet or legwarmers?
Why, All 3 of course…
Platforms for most pole classes
Bare feet for Vertical Vixens
Legwarmers when working on sensual floor techniques
What are you currently working on technically?
Just signed up for my first round of Vertical Vixens and I love all my bruises from each session. Takes pole to a different level once you are upside down.
What are you working on artistically?
Fluidity and transitioning; I wanna be the girl that makes it look amazingly effortless
Do you have a favorite song to pole dance to?
Slow by Jamie Foxx
We LOVE music at Venus Pole Fitness. What 3 songs would be featured on the soundtrack to YOUR life?
- When I Hear Music- Debbie Deb
- Sideways- Citizen Cope
I love to make homemade cake pops… I like to lick the choc off the spoon when I am done
Any inspirational advice you would like to share with new polers?
Whole heartedly, this is a place for real women. A place where a woman be herself and show her many attributes. Whether, it is athleticism; by working out hard during boot camp; motivating another woman with encouraging words or artistic skills in a pole class; all is accepted. If you think a class is not for you; at least give it a try.
Lastly, leave negative attitudes at the door and enjoy your time with a wonderful collection of ladies!
