Instructor

Nadine

I started pole dancing at The Pole Studio South Africa in 2011. I was encouraged by my sister to “just come and try one class”. One class was enough to get me hooked! Since then I have been trained by Tracey Simmonds and fellow instructors, Karin Nicklin and Carmi Kruger. This ongoing privilege has inspired me and I became an accredited Pole instructor at the Pole Studio SA in 2013.

I am an accredited Pole Fitness Instructor at the Pole Studio South Africa. I have been training at the Pole Studio South Africa since 2010. In both 2012 and 2013 I competed in the Pole Fitness Association of South Africa Competition where I achieved bronze medals (3rd place) in the Silver Division. I have completed my two-year Diploma in Exercise Science at The Health and Fitness Professionals Academy which is an internationally accredited institution.

My first pole dancing class was at the Pole Studio South Africa in 2014 and I haven’t stopped since. Subsequently, under the guidance and instruction of Tracey Simmonds, I have become an accredited instructor at the Pole Studio and have competed in the National Pole Sports Competition 2016, placing 2nd in my category. I was also privileged to be able to participate in Pole Unity 2015 taking part in an exciting group routine choreographed by Nadine Vermaak and Ingrid Lubbe.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQS

Am I too old / Overweight / Weak?

You’re never too old to take up pole! We teach pupils in their 50’s and 60’s!
We will help you lose weight and gain strength, so the simple answer is no! Everyone starts somewhere!

Is there an age limit for Pole Fitness classes?

Participants under 18 must have written consent from a parent or guardian.

When will I see the physical results of pole fitness?

This also depends on individual differences, consistency of training, diet and lifestyle.

Our clients have reported to see results within five weeks. The first benefits reported, aside from feeling great, are weight loss and improved muscle tone.

What shall I wear?

Wear something that you feel comfortable in that does not restrict movement. Gym clothing is fine. You do not need to wear shorts for the first few lessons however exposing skin on the legs (and arms) allows you to grip on to the pole. If you feel shy about wearing shorts you can wear tracksuit trousers at first.

Lycra shorts are recommended. If you do not have any we sell Pole Studio shorts specially designed for Pole Fitness classes.

In order to protect our poles and your belongings, jewellery must be removed prior to commencing a class.

You can wear trainers, ballet shoes or go barefoot for our pole fitness classes.
