A Bit About Pole Players
Welcome to Pole Players! We run pole fitness classes from beginner through to advanced levels. Every BODY is welcome, no upper body strength, dance or gymnastic ability required to start- this will develop naturally as you progress!

A bit about me! I started Pole 11 years ago as a way to meet people and maybe even get fit! Little did I know how much Pole would change my life for the better all those years ago - from not being able to do 1 push up to discovering what I am physically capable of achieving...and there's still so much more to learn!
I have been teaching now for over 7 years and love enabling people to access their inner-awesome and achieve things they never thought they could just like I did. Pole is challenging and takes time and dedication, but it’s amazing to watch my students grow in strength and confidence.
I had a couple of breaks in my pole journey to have 2 beautiful children, but I have always found my way back to it. Not only has pole kept me fit after having my kids, it helps to keep me sane(ish!). It's my sanctuary, my invaluable "me" time.
