♥ Nicola Batchford (#3)

I trained as a dance instructor from the age of 19 to teach children’s classes… then I attended a Pole Beginners Course and was hooked! In 2010 I started offering classes to adults – at the time Pole Fitness was only really for women, and I loved how fun and sociable it became, so I decided to pitch all my classes as being ladies-only. I take pride in the fact that classes are aimed specifically at women to try something new, build their confidence, keep fit and have fun doing it. I also burst with pride at how much the students and staff have become like a family, we all support each other.

♥ Lauren (#1)

Lauren is our newest member and mainly teaches during the day. She has been with the studio since the 2nd year it opened and has developed so much in strength and flexibility. She’s incredibly likeable and always tries to get the best out of people.

♥ Bet (#2)

Bet runs one pole class at NMS and absolutely loves it. Her own confidence has built up over the few years she’s been teaching, and has developed a great rapport with the girls. Well and truly part of the team.

♥ Hayley (#4)

Currently on Maternity Leave!! Hayley’s energy in class shows her passion for the sport as well as her determination in getting her students to achieve. She makes every class enjoyable and her background in gymnastics influences her in class to try out different types of moves and gets everyone involved.

♥ Katy (#5)

Katy comes from a background of Belly Dance and has now become addicted to aerial hoop! She’s incredibly friendly and encouraging of people and really loves what she does. Her classes are well structured and she ensures everyone achieves something new.

♥ Latoya (#6)

Latoya took a real interest in teaching very early on, and was keen to become an instructor. She’s an absolute natural in delivering a class and she’s so encouraging, especially to those who come with very little confidence – gives them a real boost.
