About Ashley Robinson

Hi!  My name is Ashley and I am a passionate photographer, writer, creative guru and flourishing pole artist.  I am also a big fan of the GYM. Four broken feet, a foot surgery and the loss of over 30 pounds (gained during the course of broken feet) I am an avid fitness enthusiast that is learning to love (and take better care of) my body.  My goal is encourage and help other women find fitness and unleash their hidden potential – while learning to be fit, fierce and fabulous.  Having experienced a wide range of my own weight (now down to 170, but weighed 232 at my heaviest), I know how important it is not to lose sight of the inner sexiness and strength that we all encompass. Bringing back and building up confidence is key!

Three years ago I was invited to an open house event at a pole studio and instantly fell in love with the sexy athleticism and the challenges it offered.  As a former cheerleader, gymnast and soccer player, I’ve been involved in sports and fitness most of my life.  I love the fact that pole not only offers me a new, fun type of fitness but also that it allows me to make use of my athletic background.  And I was happy to finally have a fun, social outlet that allowed me to also work on my fitness.

I enjoy encouraging women of all body types to try out pole fitness.  Embracing all shapes and sizes of dancers, I am out to prove to the world that anyone can pole – even those that feel they aren’t strong enough to pole dance.  I can honestly say that I enjoy all that pole fitness has to offer – building strength, confidence and finding her inner sensual diva.  My new found passion for pole and fitness encouraged me to pursue formal training with the goal of bettering myself and contribute positively to our pole fitness community.  As an Xpert certified instructor, I am dedicated to sharing my pole passion and fitness expertise through my FreeStyle Friday community and Project Aerial Ambition.  I hope to help my pole sisters be sexy, strong and more confident. I also started competing in 2011 and look forward to being a part of more pole competitions in the future.

What I enjoys most about being a pole fitness dancer is that I've been able to improve my flexibility, strength, overall fitness and self confidence while networking and meeting new people.  My favorite move is the Kandy Kane! And I have several variations of it that I've come up with.  I love to play around with Kandy Kane spins to see how unique I can make it by infusing my own style.

Some Words of Wisdom
I just wanted to share a little excerpt from a book I’m reading. The authors point out that: “…[in regard to inaction] Actions could have had results. It is generally better to do something rather than nothing, because action just might have a positive effect. There’s even more to the advantage of action over inaction…it’s certain that inaction will have NO benefit.” What Are You Waiting...

The Road to Competition…

The Road to Competition…
I just finished competing at Miss Pole Dance Oklahoma Competition and I’d have to say that this has been my best competition yet. It was my third major competition (I’ve also done two small studio competitions) and I can already see a significant improvement in my competition performance ability. I remember my first competition experience in the Amateur Division of Miss Texas Pole Star back...

8 Tips To Finding Your Freestyle

8 Tips To Finding Your Freestyle
Many of us are still trying to find our groove when it comes to freestyle dance. I hear the words: “I can’t freestyle” all too often from my pole sisters. And heck, I’ve even said them before myself. But I’m here to tell you that you CAN freestyle. If you would have told me a year ago that I’d be free styling and loving it, I would have given a hearty laugh and called you a liar, but to...
