Tiffanie - Aerial Hoop Instructor

Tiffanie grew up as a competitive gymnast, training out of Flip City from the ages 3-13. After she stopped competing in gymnastics she discovered competitive cheerleading and fell in love with the sport. She competed until she was 17, finishing off her career by going to Worlds. Due to needing surgery, she had to say good bye to competing, but kept her foot in the door by coaching and continues to coach today. 

In 2013 Tiffanie was introduced to pole fitness, and found hoop soon after. She quickly excelled in hoop at AcroFit and has begun taking instructor training so that she can share her passion for hoop with others.

Amy - Pole Fitness Specialist

Amy grew up in B.C. on a small farm.  It wasn't until her late 20’s while living in the U.S. she got into fitness.  Amy was looking for a fun, challenging but non-repetitive form of exercise and that's when she discovered pole dance fitness.  In 2011 Amy became a certified Pole Fitness Instructor from PDIC in Las Vegas.  In addition to pole fitness Amy received her Aerial Yoga teacher certification in 2013.  The stretching and relaxation that comes from aerial yoga is a perfect compliment to the strength, body conditioning and confidence she has gotten from pole fitness.  Amy enjoys spending her free time with her little dog, two cats and horse.
