Acrofit was built on the idea that fitness can go beyond what is available at regular gyms. We offer our clients alternative fitness programs that include aerial silk, pole fitness, yoga/flexibility, acrobatics, and even Ninja Warrior style training.
People often look at acrobatics and think "there's no way I could do that" and feel intimidated. We want to break through these misconceptions, to show that these skills can be achieved by anyone, and that you'll have a blast while doing it! Regardless of your skill level, whether you're a beginner or a professional looking to up their game, our top level coaches will ensure you get the training you're looking for.
Welcome to Acrofit!
Our 3000 sq.ft facility features 30 foot high ceilings, and 3 separate studio spaces for our various programs.
Our second studio is where we have our pole fitness classes, as well as our Acro Ninja program with a full-sized warped wall. Our clients can also enjoy the use of weight training equipment and mini rock climbing wall.

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.
