Wendy Traskos's career as a pole-dancing icon began with one fateful spin. Impressed by the strength of self-expression she glimpsed in accomplished pole-dancers, she tried the art for herself and was hooked immediately, so much so she has been honing her spinning skills for 16 years. Now a self-taught professional, she channels her background as a certified personal trainer and gymnast to enhance her routines. Wendy’s fitness knowledge landed her celebrity clients, including Montel Williams and Mary J. Blige, and her proficiency on the pole led Germany's version of America's Next Top Model to feature her as a dancing expert.
At NY Pole studios, Wendy passes on her spiraling prowess through her original Climb and Spin method. She believes that students should build a foundation of muscle and a repertoire of techniques as they progress to more advanced pole tricks, which require them to shed all rock-climbing gear. Her classes accommodate varying skill levels with choreographed routines, motivating participants to practice recently learned grips, climbs, and transitions. The studios also offer fitness classes, private parties, and workshops led by guest instructors such as Cleo “The Hurricane,” also known as Miss Pole Dance Australia.
After 25 years of working in the medical and fitness industries as an ACE- and NSCA-certified trainer, Tanya Bange understands the importance of setting goals. Alongside group fitness instructor Kathy Dorney, Bange leads women of all ages and fitness levels through a rigorous boot camp designed to help clients formulate fitness goals, stick to them, and, ultimately, achieve them. Together, the duo helps clients meet goals that range from simply developing stamina to passing the arm-wrestling portion of their quarterly performance evaluation at the office. They lead full-body workouts that may involve classic pushups, bleacher sprints, and flipping a tire end over end.
Bange and Dorney also run 30-minute workout sessions for preschoolers, planting the seeds of an active lifestyle early by keeping them active in games that include the cardio-centric I’m a Super Hero! and the yoga-based Hungry Caterpillar.
