A west coast ambassador for the Pole Fitness Association, Michula Nunez of Antix Fitness Studio shares the sultry art of pole dancing with novice twirlers, professionals, and fellow instructors seeking certification. Her schedule of 60-minute alternative fitness workshops range from introductory to advanced classes with specialized offerings such as Sexy Pole and brass statue polishing. Students learn the basic moves, spins, and transitions of pole dancing while working out their shoulders, abs, and lower limbs. Much like most eighth-grade Constitution testing sessions, lessons culminate in a choreographed routine set to music.
Private parties fill a full 75 minutes with detailed pole instruction or an intensive breakdown of lap-dancing essentials. Lap-dancing ladies learn to seductively navigate around a seated partner, shimmying their bodily assets in the process. In addition to honing their inner snake-charming skills, students boost strength in the quads and glutes and often leave with the confidence needed to confront the mall Santa’s who never followed through on their pony promises.
Antix Fitness Studio
If anyone can appreciate defying gravity, it's Michula Nunez. The former science and math teacher found both a creative and physical outlet in the art of pole dancing. She added it to her teaching repertoire in 2002, before finally opening her own gym – Antix Fitness Studio – to pursue her newfound passion as a full-time instructor. She teaches classes for beginners to experts, and even holds private parties for groups of ladies looking for a fun, fitness-focused night out.
