Although...

Beating Post Natal Depression With A Great Big Pole

Beating Post Natal Depression With A Great Big Pole
I started pole originally in May 2010 when my daughter was coming up for 9 months old; I was suffering horribly with Post Natal Depression and had been signed off work for some time. It is impossible to explain the horrid, dark vacuum of depression so I am not going to attempt it; if you have been there then no explanation is needed, if you haven’t then none will suffice. After repeated trips to...

Exclusive Interview with Karol Helms

Exclusive Interview with Karol Helms
Of course, as all of the people in my life know, Karol Helms is my pole IDOL! Some of Karol’s pole achievements include USPDF 2012 Pro Championships 3rd Place, USPDF Miss Sexy 2010, and USPDF East Coast Champ 2009.

I started at the beginning of July 2012, which brings my grand total of pole experience up less than a year. I live in a pretty small area of Pennsylvania, where the first pole...
