PoleFIT Revolution is a unique studio that gives women a place to
play and discover their active and sexy self in a safe environment. I've been an active professional,
manager and fitness consultant in the Health & Fitness Industry for
almost 16 years. I am a certified Personal Trainer through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) and certified Group Fitness instructor by ACE, AFAA, and AEA. I have been teaching Pilates and Yoga for almost 10 years and
I'm a Professionally Certified Pilates Instructor (900hr. +,
Beginner - Advanced, Special Needs & PreNatal) through PEAK Pilates out of Boulder,CO. I completed my 200hr Yoga Shala Training in 2002 as a way to further enrich my love for Mind/Body forms of exercise.
I was introduced to Pole Dancing at a home party and got serious
about practicing this fun fitness alternative over 5 years ago after my 2nd child by c-section. As I pursued my pole
fitness journey by learning from dance competitors, classes,
national fitness conventions, and self taught practice I immediately saw how my
experience with yoga, pilates, and fitness classes translated into
one workout on the pole. I wanted to use my background to
teach safe and effective pole fitness to others. I started by leading many home parties and private lessons.
As I trained my clients (mostly female) in all forms of fitness I
saw the opportunity and need to share my passion and experience with
others to help them create the body and regain the confidence they

Sara has been pole dancing on and off
for 8years. She worked for 5 years in a Professional
Ballet Company, 2 years as a principal ballerina, Certified Cecchetti and En Pointe instructor through Association of
Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (AISTD). Her
experience gives her the natural grace and beauty on stage and
in every choreographed routine she creates. She is a pro
when it comes to stage presence and sensual flow. Sara has
embraced the unity of Pole Dance, ballet and fitness to create
her sexy, smooth classes with a sporty twist that students love!
We have affectionately nicknamed Sara our "Spider Monkey" as she
can twist and lift herself into just about anything. Sara
deals with a Hyperactive Thyroid which causes her metabolism to
be unnaturally high (I know we keep asking her to bottle it up
for us), this leaves her with an extremely lean physique.
Her thin legs keep her from grabbing the pole with them a lot
but she has amazing upper body strength that has also made her a
great teacher for our male students because she can challenge
their upper body as well and give them tricks to suit their body
type. Sara is a single mommy of a very active toddler whom
we all hear hilarious stories about so she understands what its
like to embrace motherhood...wearing many role model hats for
her son while still keeping her own sense of individuality as a
sexy confident female with goals and the passion for success.
Sara truly loves to share her knowledge and talent for pole
dancing and shows that warmth and welcoming love in every class.
