I love my daily Pilates practice. From Palm Springs to Los Angeles, I love sneaking into the studios and learning from many talented teachers. It has been a meditation, a therapist and an outlet for my excess energy! It literally is one of my favorite moments of the day. It is one of the first things I do in the morning or one of the last activities of my day. It was a splurge to join a boutique Pilates studio, but it has literally changed my mind and body! Pilates has been a great way to keep my body long and lean. It has also kept me strong while doing pole dancing with S factor! If you are looking for something to inspire, it might work for you! #pilates#clubpilates#SFactor#poledancing#fitfam
The INCREDIBLE Candy took out the amateur division of PoleCandy in Sydney on the weekend! This incredible pole dance extraordinaire has been training with JSSP for a year and came to us with specific goals to support her performance in the sport. Aside from the impressive level of strength required of pole dancing, she also wanted something which would help prevent injury.
Working in our small group classes, Candy not only has great coaches to give her direction and guidance, but a team of friendly and supportive members to keep her sharp. We’ve worked with her to design a program which gives her strength AND endurance to help keep her at the top of her game. Candy understands the importance of functional fitness and how it helps her keep lean, strong and motivated. "Jon is an amazing coach and he has a great team working with him to ensure we keep motivated. JSSP is awesome to help get you to the next level." Congratulations Candy, we’re excited to be part of your journey!
Nunca fui muito envolvida com esportes, apesar ser Formada em Educação Física, mas o poledance me fascinou de tal jeito que eu não consegui resistir a modalidade... Não posso dizer que é uma coisa fácil de se fazer, estaria mentindo se dissesse, no início não conseguia fazer nada (nada mesmo), era frustrante... até conseguir subir nessa barra foram semanas treinando no chão, buscando fortalecer , verificar o jeito que as meninas faziam os movimentos até enfim conseguir realizar minhas primeiras “gracinhas” na barra. Que felicidade vem sendo desde então verificar tudo o que já consegui fazer e o que estou treinando para aprimorar. Tia @thynara_ vem sendo um anjo de tão paciente (apesar de ela frequentemente ir possuída pelo ritmo ragatanga e tentar tirar meu couro) em me acompanhar nesse processo de autoconhecimento, metas alcançadas, desafios diários. Obrigada theacher, você é simplesmente sensacional.
Mas o que eu queria dizer mesmo é que, apesar dos hematomas pelo meu corpo, as dores por tentar fazer figuras mais complexas, o medo que as vezes dá de cair da barra e as dificuldades que encontro em fazer algumas figuras... eu realmente amo fazer isso, me pendurar igual macaco, me descobrir, ser mais consciente do que sou capaz de fazer e também aumentar as minhas capacidades que antes eram tão limitas. Só tenho vontade de ficar por horas fazendo minhas artes. 🤸🏻♀️♥️
Day 13 of the 31 days of self love challenge: take a selfie. Just as you are. Find one thing to love about it.
I RAISE YOU ONE AWKWARD ASS VIDEO OF MY LUMPY POTATO BUTT DANCING.
I've never considered myself graceful or sexy or pretty much any other descriptor that most girls would want associated with them. When I started pole, I was terribly self conscious and would always wear a Tshirt and longer shorts.
Although I'm still self conscious as fuck, I'm learning to slowly love myself the way I am.
It took a lot of courage to upload this video because I can't body roll for shit; I've definitely done prettier backward spins; and I fuck up and slip at the end; but I loved that even for a moment, I thought to myself: damn, that looked good.
I'm proud of how far I've come.
Have you ever had a dream in life, and when you think about it or tell anyone you start with “well It would never happen, but I dream about...”? Well, for me that was a dream of wanting an amazing man, a good person where I felt proud of who he was and what a healthy, one-unit, relationship we had, (and not in that unhealthy movie-romance kind of way) but the real deep love that comes from fighting through tough shit and loving each other even when you are so pissed off at the other, I have that now. I grew up learning the script that men are selfish and no matter what you have to settle. He changed that. I no longer feel relationships will always be one-sided. 😻💘 we had some seriously intense mountains to trudge but I am so grateful to finally meet a man that made me feel like fantasy can be a reality. AND he’s a sexy gorgeous drummer?! Is this a dream or what. @chrisbishopdrums 😘
