As a certified personal trainer for women, Rhiannan Nichole knows firsthand the physical benefits of working out. It wasn't until she started teaching pole-dancing classes, however, that she realized exercise can also induce inner change and empowerment. By blending challenging tricks with sensual movements in her own personal dance style, she works to help students feel more confident about their bodies, regardless of their age, shape, or fitness level. Along with fellow instructors, she leads seven classes, each of which centers on objectives rather than difficulty or government-mandated sweat quota. Nichole's vertical abilities have not only helped other women discover their inner vixens but have made her a fierce competitor in the California Pole Dance Championships and have even earned her a feature on the Pocket Pole iPhone application.
Trees-R-Us stocks its four Orange County retail locations with festive evergreen varieties such as Douglas, Grand, and Nordmann Firs—an annual tradition since 1981.

The company’s expert tree growers cut each batch as late in the season as possible before sending them out to each location, where they’re graded according to height and shape and then arranged for easy perusing.
