Shortly after being enrolled in college, I became a certified Zumba instructor. Around the same time, I began taking PoleKitten classes and in no time I was looking for more classes to try. I signed up for Suspension Yoga as well as plenty of drop-ins and was forever hooked.
With my program at school, we were required to work in the fitness community and I immediately thought of Allure! The studio has always been so supportive of their students in achieving their goals, and this was the perfect opportunity.
Nicole I started at Allure in November of with Polekitten and it was the best decision I made. The sense of community at Allure is amazing. Every instructor, receptionist and students are all so positive, encouraging, supportive and inspiring. Since joining Allure, I have filled my schedule with plenty of classes from pole, hoop, ignite training, burlesque, bendy and beyond flexibility training and plenty of drop-in classes.
I have never felt as confident, strong and inspired as I do today. I owe it to Allure Fitness Inc. Work on your weaknesses until they are strengths. Work on your strengths until they become second nature! I was introduced to Allure Fitness and after a lot of convincing, I attended my first pole class. I was almost immediately hooked and have been enjoying pole, aerial hoop and group exercise classes ever since. Being in class brought me so much happiness and confidence — I wanted to share that same positive experience with others.
The selection of drop-in classes with the six week course was my gateway back into fitness. All of the instructors are knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. My favorite class to take is Zumbalicious, a fast paced high-energy cardio workout to fun music. I decided to go for Zumba Instructor training when approached and asked to teach classes at Allure.
I absolutely love to see people come into my class! Since Allure was becoming one of my favourite places to be, I decided to partake in the Energy Exchange program; you can catch me working behind the reception desk on Monday nights! Though I wish most of my time could be spent taking drop-ins or Pole classes at the studio, my other interests include horseback riding, travelling, and catching up on the latest movies!
Angela I am a self-proclaimed lazy couch potato but I wanted to be slightly better. I signed up for Polekitten in January and the only thing I regret is not signing up sooner!
The environment at Allure is so welcoming and encouraging. You can find me either sweating and groaning in classes with you or behind the reception desk! For fun, I watch way too much TV and try to eat my weight at all the restaurants in Hamilton. Juli I signed up for Polekitten in on a whim. As someone who indentifies as the opposite of athletic, it was a pretty intimidating step to take. Imagine my delight when I found such a welcoming and supportive atmosphere!
Three years and countless classes later, you can spot me behind the reception desk every Wednesday evening! When I walk into the studio I can immediately feel the positive energy from the Allure team and students!
My favourite class so far is burlesque! Everyone is so supportive and kind. I love that I get to see everyone achieve their goals and have fun while doing it! The studio has helped me improve myself confidence and I am lucky to be apart of such a great team. See you in the studio! Latiesha Before Allure, I was never a consistent gym goer. I was either on the cardio machines hating every minute, or one of those New Years resolution joiners that left their membership to collect dust come February!
In Aprila girlfriend and I decided we wanted to try something different, and focus on fun more so than working out. It was then we found Allure.
Meet the Allure Fitness Team
After my first Pole Tease class I knew I was hooked. I purchased the three week Intro Special and before I knew it, I was coming to drop in classes every day, if not multiple times per day. Stop by on Saturday mornings to have a chat! I decided to give it another go! The atmosphere was supportive, everyone was friendly, and I laughed…a lot! I enrolled in my first aerial hoop course and burlesque showcase class that day! When I purchased my first pair of Pleasers, I was committed!
