Meet Our Instructors... [ Mikal ] [ Juls ] [ Windy ]
Pole dance fitness has become more than a trendy new workout. It is becoming recognized as a great alternative workout for women of all ages. The combination of stretches, strength training, dance
movement, and gymnastics will transform your body all while you are having fun. This fitness program is
unique in that it is designed just for women to not only build their outer strength and beauty but to empower them to feel sexy and strong emotionally.
It is sometimes hard to stay motivated when working out is a chore to get through. With pole dance
fitness the workouts are just as demanding physically but because it is so enjoyable it takes the work out
of working out. The classes fly by and before you realize it you will see the changes in your body and
feel the changes in your attitude as you become the strong, confident, sexy woman you want to be.
Be ready to bring your mind, body, & spirit to the next level!
My name is Mikal Mount, I am am the owner and creator of Pole Dance Fitness of SWFL and SWFL Pole Dance Supply.
I first discovered pole dance fitness when I had tried it all to lose that last 10-15 lbs but nothing was working. Workouts
became sporatic as I was slowly losing motivation. I had never experienced working out at a gym or anywhere outside
my home so this was a little scary at first. I never considered myself graceful or sexy and was intimidated by the idea
of pole dance but at the same time was so intrigued I couldn't put the thought of trying it out of my head.
So if you aren't
sure if this is for you - all you have to do is come one time! After just one class I was hooked. Within a
few months the
physical results were amazing! As an added benefit this is the only exercise that helps you grow
stronger both physically & Mentally. It allows women to feel sexy and express themselves in a comfortable, judgement
free zone. What woman
doesn't want to look and feel great? I have had such a boost of self-esteem and now have
enough self confidence to
tackle just about anythingI have continued my education of this art by participating in a pole
dance instructor certification
workshop. The workshop was at Susan Hilferty's Pole Fitness Miami. The instructors
professional dance training
and had some wonderful techniques.
I recieved my Pole Dance Instructor Certification for beginner, intermediate, & advanced teaching. I have been teaching
classes at another studio but now have my own studio in Bonita Springs.
I am starting
classes now at Pole Dance Fitness of SWFL and look forward to sharing my knowledge and the fun
with women of all
types and all ages.
Pole dance fitness has changed my life and it can change yours too!
We also offer shoe & apparel sales, pole parties, and pole rentals. Feel free to contact me at anytime if you have any questions or comments!
Juls Hillery Chambers is currently an instructor at Pole Dance Fitness of SW FL and has been for almost a year.
Being raised in The United States Marine Corps and coming from a 22 year General Contracting career, she has truly reinvented herself as a pole dance fitness instructor. She believes that you need to be passionate about any career move you may choose in life and she definitely loves pole dance fitness! In this day & age, the fitness industry is one of the few growing as women want pole dance fitness. While getting in shape, they are gaining strength in areas that have always been challenging for women UPPER BODY & CORE, while learning control of pole moves and feeling great about themselves. Pole Dance Fitness of SW FL is a happy place, drama free zone for women to support each other while excelling at pole dance.
Juls came to Pole Dance Fitness of SW FL about a year ago unsure of what she was going to incorporate into her daily exercise...she had just turned 40 and didn't really want to go back to the same old gym hum drum but needed something different. She drove by Pole Dance Fitness of SW FL and decided to make the call. After a brief discussion with Owner Mikal Mount, she decided to give it a shot. A few of her girlfriends were also interested and scheduled through Juls to attend. The day came and only Juls showed up in baggy clothes & shy about her body that she didn't like, with Mikal as the instructor. The pain was good! Even though Juls was a clumsy softball player with no dance background, Mikal had a lot of patience and pushed her through. Look at her now - 35 pounds lighter, taking care of herself, properly nutritioned and HOT! Juls believes that if she can become a stiletto & small shorts wearing, polished, fit pole dancer - anybody can. She was inspired by Mikal and strives to emulate her teacher through to her students. This coupled with per leadership background and dedication, makes her a motivating instructor.
Training with Felix Cane in January 2011 at Pole Dance Fitness of SW FL really stepped it up for Juls in pole dance - Felix is amazing!
Then Juls attended The International Pole Dance Fitness Convention in June 2011 @ West Palm Beach, Florida. The multitude of classes she trained in were all challenging and left her in awe. Chair Dance Workshop with Jamilla Deville, ATL Booty Clap Workout and Freaky Floor Moves with Vertical Joe's Studio, Burlesque with Erica Shergold, Getting In Touch With Your Sensuality with Claire Sterrett, Stretching w/ Amber Ray, the shows, the parties, the bonding amongst polers from beginner to pro, all of it! And actually getting to spend some quality time with Felix Cane just made her weekend & year!
Juls invites any woman to try pole dance fitness at least one, you will get addicted...in a good way. Pole Dance Fitness of SW FL has changed Juls' life in many ways, not just the weight loss and getting into shape...it's become a complete way of life for her in how she walks, presents herself and lives life, all of her family & friends have seen it and love it! ; )-
Currently Windy is one of the Instructors at Southwest Florida Pole Dance. When not at the studio she is busy attending to her family. She is married to a husband of 19 years, she is the mother of a 17 year old son and last but not least a mother to a special little daughter of six; who has been diagnosed with Autism.
Windy first became interested in Poling, shortly after she had purchased her own pole and began experimenting with some of the moves for the pole in her own home. Windy tapped into the World Wide Web for her initial introduction to some of the more challenging techniques, but finally discovered Pole Fitness of South Florida and Mikal to lead her into success and great physical conditioning.
Prior to “Poling” Windy gained around 13 years of experience in the world of physical fitness through many commercial discipline such as Zumba, Pilates, and Aerobics. What inspired Windy to open her eyes toward physical fitness is that when Windy was a young teenager, she weighed around 200 lbs. and faced a laundry list of physical ailments.
Windy’s recent experiences shot out of the ball park when she attended a one on one Felix Cane Seminar, in early 2011 which was hosted by Pole Fitness; and last June, Windy attended her first International Pole Convention and walked away with a wealth of knowledge. Windy attended the classes and seminars given by industry professional greats such as Rebecca Butcher, Rafaela Montanaro, Justine Mclucas, Erica Shergold, and Jamilla Devilla.
As an instructor at Pole Fitness, windy tries to connect with each student at their level, she understands how one can be a little nervous at first, and tries to make the classes interesting but very fun.
