Let me tell you a little story.
I took my very first Pole Fitness class in September 2014 and was addicted after.
It’s an incredible workout that few would understand unless they have experienced it first hand. You’re afforded the opportunity to intimately get to know your body — Using every part of it from a toe point to a hair flip.
You also gain a lot of confidence in yourself and that confidence gives you the ability to inspire other women to be confident too.
So, back to the beginning. When I started this journey, I immediately took to the internet to find other women who were involved in pole fitness. I wanted to connect with people who had the same passion and to be inspired by the other women involved.
Well, it’s hard to feel inspired when everywhere you look there’s a woman half your size hoisting herself into an invert when it took you a month just to gain enough strength to lift both feet off of the ground. I’ve even seen smaller women lift themselves up for the first time with no prior experience in beginner classes — kudos to them but my ass flopped the first time I tried.
I just wanted to be inspired by women who look like me that can identify with what I’m going through. I tried looking up “plus size pole dancer”, “curvy pole fitness”, pretty much every variation of being voluptuous and the word pole and there weren’t any communities or websites that featured or celebrated us, so I wanted to create one.
Curvy Girls Pole is meant for women to feel empowered enough to fully embrace their body, inspire others, challenge themselves and continue to love thy pole!
— Logo Coming Soon 😀 —
This website will feature curvy women who do pole fitness, reviews on different products like poles, apparel, shoes and things that uniquely impact us curvier ladies, my progress through my personal journey and things that are happening in the world of pole.
I’m so excited for this journey and I appreciate everyone who’s willing to take it with me.
