My Story: My Passion

I've competed at three world championships, have tons of medals, have coached hundreds of athletes, have a wall full of certifications, built three thriving businesses and have spoken on many stages. 

But what I'm most proud of is the impact we are making in the lives of our students.
All the time I have people who come up to me and tell me that pole fitness has literally changed their lives. They were lost, alone, and broken and our program provided the tools for them to heal. 

This resonates with me because I've been through it. I know what it is like to struggle with depression and body image. I've been through hell. And I've found a way out.

Pole Fitness helped me to see my body as this amazing gift that enables me to live my passions. I've learned to celebrate my body not only for what it looks like, but for what it can do. I finally found not only peace with my reflection, but a deep love for my body. 

Now it's my mission to create a complete revolution in the fitness industry: a revolution where 
*mental health is an important part of physical health
*working out is actually fun and people actually want to do it
*there is complete judgement free zone

Most importantly... the revolution doesn't stop on the pole. When people become confident they become empowered to do really cool stuff. They realize their potential and are willing to go out and make a difference.
This empowerment leads to 
-cultural shifts
-political change
-global improvement. 


This is more than a business, this is a mission. I'm here to change the world. One spin at a time.
