I started going to this studio in October of 2017 when I moved back to town. I LOVE it! The classes are fun, engaging and a great way to get in shape. The teachers are wonderful and encouraging, as are the other patrons. I have met some of the best people and made great friends at this gym. I highly recommend it!
I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone and everyone! I came to the class on a whim, and fell in love with it immediately. I'm not one for exercise or for diets, so I was hoping this class would be a fun way to help me shed my leftover baby weight. In a matter of weeks I lost 20 lbs and quite a bit of flab! Aside from the amazing work out that it is, it does wonders for one's self esteem. Mastering a move that first made you think to yourself 'there is absolutely no way my body will do that' feels amazing! The instructor is very easy going and patient, and the class allows you to work & learn at your own pace. It's just all together fun!
I will never forget the day I viewed a pole video of Bendy Kate! Ms. Kate sparked my curiosity of pole dance and then I found Pole and Aerial Fitness of SWFL! It took me close to a year to drum up the courage to sign up for a pole class. I thought I was too old, so I emailed them. Melanie, a co-owner of the studio, convinced me to sign up to take Introduction to Pole in June 2018. I fell in love with pole, Carrie, and every singe person in that studio! What a loving, non-judgmental and safe place to be. It was all over…. I was hooked!!!! It was the first time I ever touched a dance pole and I could not get one foot off the ground, but I was determined, persistent and consistent with my pole workouts and strength conditioning. I took classes from all the instructors at the studio and I am also a student in the S Factor class, taught by Michelle, instructor and co-owner of the studio.
I fell in love with the women and men I have come in contact with in the pole community who develop their own styles and signature moves that make us swoon, the pole athletes performing mind-blowing feats of acrobatics that defy gravity, the studio owners that run on passion and community love, the girls in the clubs working like a boss in 6 inch heels. I love the storytellers, the aerialists, the instructors, performers, I love the music that hits a cord so deep inside it moves me - I love it all. But more than anything, I love the feeling of strength, power and confidence that comes from knowing you can lift your entire body weight over your head on a pole! Pole dance changed my life! And I am here to tell you that it is never too late and you are never too old to try pole dance!
March 2018 is my 5 year aerial anniversary at this studio! I've been hooked on aerial since my first pole class the year I turned 40 years young with no dance, gymnastics, or athletic experience. My home away from home has made me not only physically stronger but also mentally. I promise you will accomplish something from each class which in turn will keep increasing your confidence. This is a journey where I see no end in sight, and you are not only a client but also are family. #strongatanyage
I’ve been going to this studio for over 3 years now and still love it. I’ll never forget my 1st visit. I was nervous and clumsy. But everyone was so nice and class was fun. Not a competitive atmosphere and everyone is so supportive. It has become my home away from home and a place I can go to just be me, be feminine, be artistic, be strong af, reach goals, and watch others smash their goals. There’s a variety of apparatuses and classes to try at all levels. The studio is clean and well kept. If you’ve been thinking about it, give it a go!
I was visiting the area from the Chicago suburbs where I take and teach pole. This studio not only welcomed me, but made me feel so comfortable and amazing. The instructor was amazing and did a wonderful conditioning class. I also took the very fun Magic Mike routine. Everyone was all different levels, ages and sizes but each woman killed it! What an amazing workout! I finished off my amazing week with a Valentines Lap dance class! Sooo fun, and definitely a workout. Do it all slow motion! Each instructor was amazing and unique and brought different styles and flavor to class. I cannot wait to come back and visit again!
I've been coming to Pole & Aerial Fitness for about a year ago and I've loved my experience there. I've taken classes in every apparatus (pole, lyra, and silks) and I've made so many improvements in strength and flexibility in the past year. I also have met so many amazing encouraging strong women. I feel like I always have so many goals that I'm working towards, as well as new accomplishments that I achieve!
At 60 years, I am trying pole for the first time. The staff are welcoming and encouraging. My co-workers in the class were also supportive. This is just a warm, friendly place that feels like a 2nd home. They pay attention to detail, technique and safety. I travel 30 miles one-way to work out here. It's worth it.
Thank you for your beautiful hospitality. I traveled from the north to visit my mother who leaves right nearby you and very much enjoyed coming to your studio. I felt welcomed and comfortable. Estefania’s Flexibility class gave me some great new inspiration and ideas and I can’t tell you how much I appreciated your accommodating my tight schedule by adding an open Lyra session so I could practice. Best wishes for continued success in your new location. I’ll see you again soon!
