At Aradia Fitness Calgary, we celebrate our students’ success. Every month, we feature a student who we feel exemplifies our Aradia family spirit, and the joy of our pole community.
For the month of August, 2018, we are featuring Kristine McLean. Kristine brings so much positivity with her to the studio. She works hard in class, all the while encouraging and applauding other students. She has had an impact on all our instructors as well as her fellow students. Well done, Kristine! You have come so far and we can’t wait to see how far you will go in your aerial and pole journey!
Hometown is Edmonton, though I have lived here so long Calgary feels like my hometown.
2. Favourite pastime (outside of pole), including any other dancing, aerial you do…..I love the Static Trapeze! It is my favorite thing to do outside of pole.
3. What do you love most about pole?What I love the most about pole is the sense of strength and flexibility it gives me. I am not someone you would call flexible, however pole has made me more flexible now, as I approach 50, than I ever have been before. In the 10 months that I have been doing pole, my core strength has tripled and my overall strength has improved. It is crazy how quickly it develops with pole.
I love being inverted. So any move that is inverted is a favorite.
5. What keeps you motivated to come to your classes consistently?I keep coming back to class because it is fun…and hard…and a lot of fun…and challenging…and hard…and really fun.
If you are thinking of working out, try Aradia. I love it for all the above reasons but the best part of Aradia is all the wonderful friends I have met. The environment of the studio is so friendly and encouraging. I thought it might be a body concious environment but it absolutely isn’t. EveryBody is welcome at Aradia.
