About Sian Speed

Hi, I'm Sian and have been poling for 3 years.  I initially started as I was having a tough time and wanted to forget my worries with a new exciting hobby so decided to give pole a try!  I was instantly addicted, the instructors were lovely and very friendly and soon I had made friends with everyone in my class.

I work full time as well as doing a part time degree and so I fit pole in around my busy schedule.  I have competed in 3 competitions, 2 being National and I'm determined to train and compete once more next year before I turn 30!! I can't see me ever stopping Pole Dancing because its such good fitness and I LOVE it!!!
