The reasons for doing are as varied yet similar as the bodies.
Back to Strength
By teaching other women how to look after themselves and being a role model to them, I feel connected with them - significant in this big world!
For the feeling of achievement and feeling fit, strong and healthy.
And to look good naked so I can participate in fun photoshoots like the Pantheon Project ;)
Mainly, for me.
I spent a long time telling people to exercise without doing it myself. Our physical body is just one part of us, but that needs to be strong and healthy for all other parts of us.
To remind myself to focus more on what my body can do and less on what it looks like.
Growing up I was never fit or able to dance. As soon as I started pole dancing it somehow just works.
The sense of accomplishment and satisfaction is second to none.
I want to empower other women to start lifting weights, to look after their bodies and their health and to be strong and positive role models for women of the future.
For that feeling- feeling fully ALIVE.
The rush when you nail a perfect snatch - your body is like a coiled spring, a feeling of flow & power.
Dance allows me to express beyond the realm of language.
I love the feeling of having a set goal to improve and get better at what I do.
But mainly I dance because it is an escape and an art.
It is my passion, my hobby.
It keeps me sane.
I love achieving for myself and then sharing my knowledge with others.
I love the idea of not only success for self but for many.
To feel good, keep fit strong and healthy and look good, haha.
I love being a strong woman. It makes me feel independent and capable in my every day life.
Pole, Dance and Fitness in general can make you stronger, fitter, leaner, more confident.
Put your heels on and remember the goddess you are. Work those acrobatic tricks and remember how hard you're able to work and how badass you really are.
Get rid of all the chaos in your head by lifting heavy AF.
I'm just happier lifting shit.
