Pole Fitness

POLE FITNESS is an excellent way to build full-body strength. We offer classes in beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. We also offer two stylized dance classes that focus on choreography and sensual movement. All of our classes begin with a warm-up for full-body strengthening and flexibility. Students spend the remainder of class learning pole tricks individually tailored to each student’s level of experience. Whether you are a seasoned poler or you just want to try something new, we have a class to fit your level.

Class Descriptions

Intro to pole

Intro to pole is for anybody who is new to pole fitness. In this class we will cover the foundations to pole fitness including basic movements around the pole, pole sits, beginner spins, and strength conditioning for climbs. This class is perfect for first timers or anybody wanting to focus on the fundamentals of pole fitness.

Pole Beginner Level 1

Beginner level 1 classes place additional emphasis on strength and flexibility conditioning to help you gain the strength needed for basic pole spins and tricks. Level 1 focuses on basic climbs, spins, and beginner combos.

Pole Beginner Level 2

Beginner level 2 focuses on building upon the basics as well as executing techniques and mastering control on the spinning pole, basic inversions, and building your strength to prepare you for intermediate level challenges. It is recommended that you are able to climb the pole and have a strong basic tuck before moving on to level 2 classes.

Advanced pole tricks

Advanced pole tricks is designed for the intermediate to advanced level pole student looking for a challenge. Students will work on inverted and upright tricks with only two to three points of contact. It is stongly recommended that you are able to invert and hold basic inverted tricks before moving to an advanced level class.

Power Pole

Advanced pole tricks is designed for the intermediate to advanced level pole student looking for a challenge. Students will work on inverted and upright tricks with only two to three points of contact. It is stongly recommended that you are able to invert and hold basic inverted tricks before moving to an advanced level class.

Low Flow & Basework

Low flow and basework focuses on tricks and transitions around the pole and on the floor. This class will focus on conditioning to make low flow moves look graceful and effortless whether you are wearing heels or dancing barefoot. Each class will work on a short combo that can be used for either exotic or contemporary pole. This class is suitable for all levels, although some experience is recommended.

Contemporary Choreo (All Levels)
Contemporary choreo will combine dance and pole tricks together to perform a more lyrical style of dance. This is perfect for those who want to dance without exploring the more sensual side of pole. The choreography will be broken down piece by piece, allowing time to practice each spin or trick. At the end of class we will dance the choreography together.
 
It is highly recommended that you take at least one beginner technique class to become familiar with basic spins and movements.
Exotic Choreo (All Levels)

In exotic, emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of Russian-style and American-style exotic pole dance. You’ll learn a short choreo that encompasses various styles of exotic including tricks on the pole, basework, floorwork, and legwaves.

This class is suitable for all levels. Heels and kneepads are recommended.

Janice

Janice’s pole style is focused on strength and tricks. She started doing pole 3 years ago in April of 2014 and has been teaching since 2016. She started pole about six months after she lost her eight-year-old son due to complications from cerebral palsy. It was the start of the healing process for her. After spending months in bed, unable to function, she decided to try pole dance. It was the first hour in six months that she was not lost in grief; she had to focus so hard on what she was doing and couldn’t think about her loss. Little by little, pole strengthened her physically and mentally. She hopes to give her students that same sense of empowerment, confidence, and an inner strength that will carry people through hard times.

Outside of Be Fitness, Janice loves to run and travel. She has participated in a few triathlons and marathons. She also loves to spend time with her husband and beautiful children.

Brittany

Brittany doesn’t have a specific pole style but tends to gravitate towards strength moves. Dancing “sexy” doesn’t come naturally but she still tries! She hopes that her students find a safe place to express themselves and celebrate their accomplishments in her classes. She believes that the best part about teaching is how each student is different and brings their own style to class. She’s emphasizes correct form and provides lots of spotting during class to help prevent injuries.

Brittany loves that she can make pole whatever she wants. She can dance happy, mad, sad, and can use pole for a workout or for mental clarity. Ultimately, the pole family/sisterhood is what keeps her coming back. She loves unique transitions and combos and doesn’t have a specific favorite trick. She’s been pole dancing since 2012 and started teaching in 2015. She got into pole because of a YouTube video she watched of Jenyne Butterfly when she was younger and always wanted to do it since then. She started during graduate school at BW and it was the best release for all her stress.

Outside of pole, Brittany grew up racing BMX and still rides her bike a lot. She has a Golden Retriever fur-baby (Val) who loves to swim in the lake. She’s a hyperactive person so she’s always doing something like baking or crafting when she has time off.

Tori

Tori has been dancing for 22 years and is thrilled to be working with Be Fitness. She has trained in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern, Contemporary, Hip Hop, and Musical Theater. Tori has a BA degree in Dance from Slippery Rock University and is currently teaching and performing all over the Cleveland area. Tori started her pole journey at Be Fitness in 2015 and has loved combining her classical dance training with this amazing and unique art form.

One of the things Tori loves most about dance and pole is that they allow a freedom of expression through movement when words aren’t quite right. She wants her students to feel like they can express themselves and move through a sense of poise and grace while still building technical skills that can be used in all dance forms.

Rachael

Rachael’s aerial style is dramatic. She loves to dance to darker song lyrics to show there is grace through life’s toughest times. She started her aerial journey with pole dance because she wanted to exercise in a way that created art. For a long time she struggled with severe depression and with the help of pole she was taken off of medicine and found joy in every aspect of life. Rachael’s favorite thing about aerial arts is the expression of love for one’s self. She learned to love herself through depression because of pole. She wants to share that love with her students and hopes that her students feel encouraged in class. She wants them to know that they are capable of amazing things they did not know they could do. Rachael has been involved in aerial arts since 2015 and started teaching in the spring of 2017.

Outside of Be Fitness, Rachael enjoys knitting, adventuring to new places, trying new foods and working to make others’ lives more fulfilling. She also loves to design clothing and studied fashion at the University of Akron.

Erin

Erin doesn’t like to label her pole style but, if she had to, she’d call it sassy — a little too awkward to say it’s sexy, but her playful/flirty side definitely comes through. She tends to incorporate more strength based tricks, but she’s also been working on adding more fluidity to her movements.

Erin believes that exercise should be FUN and she likes to bring that energy to her classes. We each have our own unique abilities and strengths and she tries to nourish that in her students. She hopes that her students leave class feeling empowered to pursue their goals on and off the pole.

Erin has been a pole student since 2013 and started teaching pole in May of 2017. She is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and has specialty certifications in FXP Hula Hoop and POUND, which she has been teaching since 2015. Erin started her fitness journey by taking Zumba classes. She had read research studies suggesting that physical activity can be therapeutic and wanted something to help her deal with some of the emotional baggage that came with her divorce. After about a year of taking Zumba, she learned about pole fitness and was instantly attracted to it because it was so different from anything else she she would normally do. Pole has emboldened her to step outside of her comfort zone so that she can continue to evolve and grow as a person.

Wanida

Wanida teaches Pilates, Yoga, Pole and Spinning at Be Fitness. She started teaching pole at Be in 2015 after falling in love with the freedom and expression in dancing. She has been practicing yoga for about 10 years and completed her RYS-200 training in 2015 and is currently enrolled in her RYS-300 training. She is also a certified personal trainer and certified in aerial yoga. She completed her Pilates Reformer Level 1 and Spin training in 2019 and plans to complete her Level 2 Pilates training in 2020.

Wanida believes that movement heals the body and mind, whether you are dancing, practicing yoga or Pilates, or doing acrobatic tricks in the air. She hopes that her students find a sense of peace and appreciation for their bodies and movements throughout class. She believes that the most important part of class is learning and loving what your body is capable of doing. She hopes to help students feel empowered and confident in their own body and mind by creating better body awareness and control. She aims to give students a safe place to explore and be themselves with no judgement so that they can lead a more authentic life both in and out of the studio.

Outside of Be, Wanida lives with her boyfriend Joe, her dog Oliver, and their cat Gamora. She is learning to play golf and has noticed a significant improvement in her game since she started practicing Pilates on a more regular basis. She also collects sneakers and loves everything Sanrio, Marvel, and Tokidoki.
