I danced from the age of 5 through till I was 15. Mainly ballet, tap, modern and some other styles thrown in the mix.
After 6 years, when I was 21 I really missed dancing, which is when I accidently stumbled upon pole dancing and I have loved it ever since.
Ballet as a kid-teen, and again now. Horse riding for 15 years. Aerial silks for two years.
And because that's not risky enough, mountain biking now.
Gymnastics, circus, tumbling, dance
I've been pole dancing for more than 4 years.
Rehabilitation and Health & Fitness for 4 years. Bodybuilding for almost 4. Recently introduced Powerbuilding into my activity history.
I have been a Personal Trainer for 10 years, and I was always on the move as a kid! I have a long history in weight training, and more recently (over the past 3 years) - pole dancing and gymnastics!
I used to do pole on and off for around 2 years, and after that I've been into yoga.
I have a mixture of things that have got me into the physical shape today. Currently I am an aerialist with yoga and reformer pilates to compliment the aerials.
I've been dancing 15+ years, circus 10+ years and fitness/gym 5+ years.
Competitive squash in high school, contemporary dance, yoga, gym.
I danced since I was two years old, and started pole when I was a senior in college.
Gymnastics all through school, nothing for about 13 years. Then I came across pole. Now I dabble in a little bit of aerials with pole
Prior to this project, I've not really dabbled. I started taking my weight training seriously mid Oct 2017.
Hip Hop dance as a teen, followed by Latin dancing and eventually pole dancing. Bodybuilding from 2015 onwards also.
Previously overweight and very unfit, with no history of exercise and a lifetime of poor eating habits, I hit 40 and decided to make some serious changes to my lifestyle. I embarked on a health and fitness journey which saw me lose 30kg and completely changed my attitude to eating and exercise. I started with gentle walking, then incorporated Strength training at the gym, and 2 years ago I discovered pole fitness and have never looked back!
I played judo for the majority of my life until about 27. Then I stumbled across pole dancing after putting on a little weight. My body has responded so well to it!
Started pole 2.5 years ago and haven't looked back. Before that, I did a little gym, but I was never commited to it.
I've been pole dancing and doing other various aerial apparatus for the last 6 years. At about the halfway mark, I picked up some weights and started competitive bodybuilding to put on a bit more size.
I have danced for about 10 years and pole danced for 2!
I have always exercised. During my school years I engaged in many sports, particularly tennis, netball, judo and horse riding.
For 26 years I was an elite cyclist and began bodysculpting 3 years ago.
I was a gymnast for 8 years, then started training my circus training. After 2 years of that I turned my focus purely to Aerials and I am now a professional aerialist.
Gymnastics as a child then Crossfit, Pole and a bit of Lyra from about 3 years ago.
I've been Olympic weightlifting for 3 years.
Over 20 years of running. Previously I've done Rock climbing. Pole dancing. Martial Arts (Ninjitsu and Hapkido). And now, Crossfit.
Poler since 2014 with the occasional dabble in lyra and silk. Tried gym a couple of times but life is just more fun upside down.
I am a Personal Trainer and have been in the Fitness Industry for 9 years. I am a Professional Body Builder and a Natural Athlete. I have also competed in Powerlfiting competitions.
Playing team sports since I was 12 (now 35), pole fitness for last few years and working on my Strength in the gym.
Yoga on and off for 3 years, some weight training and pole for just over half a year. Never played sports and used to skip PE class.
