Instructor and Founder


Ann-Marie began pole fitness in 2014 with her daughter, Debbie - she was fixated straight away!

Aside from pole, Ann-Marie likes to spend her time training aerial hoop and gymnastics. She recently completed her pole qualification which has inspired Ann-Marie to continue tutor education in other aerial classes for the near future!

Pole Instructor


Sarah attended her first pole fitness class in 2016 and was instantly hooked!  This has driven her desire to get qualified and she recently became a certified Xpert Trainer in Pole Fitness Levels 1 & 2.  The things Sarah loves most about pole is that it’s not only great for your body but also your mind.  It’s a fun exercise class with a tight knit and supportive community and really increases your self-esteem as you can visibly see a difference in your strength and flexibility over time.


When Sarah isn’t hanging upside down, she spends her time working as a Buying Manager for a homewares company designing and sourcing eco-friendly home products from India, Vietnam and Indonesia
