Aradia Fitness founders Christine Boyer and Tracy Gray used to cart a portable pole to different gyms in Tracy's Dodge Neon. Though acquaintances scoffed at their idea of teaching pole dance to inspire confidence and build muscle, the duo was determined to make the art available to everyday women. Thankfully, they had the business expertise and exercise know-how to back up their venture: Christina, a Pilates and yoga instructor, stood by pole fitness as a full-body conditioning method, and Tracy's experience as a figure skater and fitness instructor brought pizzazz to the routines. The pair's classes quickly sold out wherever that Dodge Neon went.
They've come a long way since then, having been featured in Canadian Business and Elle for their growing pole-fitness franchise. At Aradia Fitness studios throughout North America, guests of all backgrounds can practice the empowering pole spins, cardio dance steps, and stiletto heel swordplay of Christine and Tracy's curriculum. Every class and private party strives to connect pupils with their sensual side, bringing self-esteem and sinuous moves to spotlight.
