Adrienne is the owner of FLY Fitness & Aerial Arts. She is passionate about fitness, dance and teaching. Her biggest goal in to creating FLY was to create a home for a community that is empowering, supportive and welcoming to everyone of all sizes, shapes and ages. She has always been fueled by variety and creativity and worked to build a studio with diverse and unique classes for people from all walks of life.
Adrienne has been a pole fitness instructor since 2008, completed her Group Fitness Certifications in Group Biking (spin) and Group Resistance Training in 2009 and followed that with a long list of further certifications, education and training in pole, aerial and general fitness.
Her favorite thing about pole and aerial fitness is how you can take the fundamental moves and interpret them in so many ways. It is a truly creative opportunity to create any mood you would like. She also loves how empowering it is and have seen first hand how it increases confidence as skills are mastered.
It was ten years ago that Kaitlin discovered pole fitness and fell in love!
She has always been an active individual and loved trying new fitness activities. She is generally the power girl who loves doing tricks, but she points out there are so many other styles that a person can choose and incorporate together (artistic, lyrical, flexy, sexy etc.). She looks forward to seeing everyone’s style and helping in any way she can. She aims to engage, encourage and challenge others to try new things and build confidence.
Pole brought her out of her shell and showed her that she is a lot stronger (physically and mentally) than she thought and now she wants to do the same for others!
Terri teaches pole and active flexibility, and is certified to teach POUND. She became certified in these particular classes because she fell in love with them as a student.
She loves to learn new things and being at FLY is no different! She has earned degrees in Early Childhood Education, welding and aromatherapy. She considers herself fairly proficient in First Aid as well because she's maintained that knowledge for 21 years.
During the day Terri is a preschool teacher. Any free time she has is spent gardening, embarrassing her teenagers, cooking, spending time with her husband, and loving on her 2 cats and dog.
She has a slight obsession with Stephen King: reading his books, collecting his books, getting multiple tattoos based on his books...it's a problem 🤣
It took Terri hundreds of tries to get 2 selfies she kind of likes.
Mica is a lifelong rhythmic gymnast and flexibility addict who stumbled across a pole class with a friend. At first she was sceptical but after 1 class she was hooked. She continued pole for 3 years, then when aerial hoop classes became available at Fly she fell in love again.
Now, as an instructor, she aims to share that passion with her students. She loves that aerial arts gives her the opportunity to move in a more creative way, showcasing strength, flexibility, endurance and grace.
Outside of the studio, Mica is a Kinesiology student hoping to pursue a career in physiotherapy. She is a CSEP certified personal trainer and completed an honours thesis in 2017 studying back bending biomechanics in gymnasts. Her dream career would be to combine her passion for circus with her interest in movement and recovery to work as a physiotherapist for aerialists.
Leslie got started in aerial arts because she LOVES dance, she always loved seeing aerial performers in shows like Circque du Soleil and to build her confidence.
She loves that it showcases her strength, gives her an opportunity to perform, and she gets to make art. Being able to make routines and perform in front of an audience is one of her favourite things. She lives for the applause and trying to perfect her moves. If she can make the audience feel something, she knows she has done a good job. Pole dancing and aerial hoop are two of her biggest passions. She calls FLY her happy place as she is surrounded by other people who love it too. And someday she hopes to compete in an aerial hoop competition.
Leslie is a licensed practical nurse, but is now taking her social work degree. She is a Certified Personal Trainer and has 13 years of classical dance training including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical and pointe. She has a giant orange cat named William and he’s amazing. She loves everything nerdy. Her favourite quote is “Do or Do Not, there is no try” Yoda.
Erica teaches Pole at FLY Fitness and has been an instructor for 2 years. She first fell in love with Pole dancing 6 years ago where she took classes in Saskatoon at Clubmynx studio. Her favourite style of pole is to use power moves and her favourite music for pole is indie/alternative music. She loves that pole allows her to express herself while also being a great and fun way to get exercise.
When Erica is not at the studio she is a full time small animal veterinarian! Her two dogs Scarlet and Winter are the lights of her life .
Jordan has been instructing aerials for a few years now and currently is teaching sling, hoop and pole, she has taught barre in the past as well. Along with that she has experience in a few other apparatuses such as silks, cube and rope.
Jordan first started at Club Mynx in Saskatoon after trying a few of their teaser classes. After her first full class she was so happy she had signed up, pole had become her first love! After a year of pole, it was time to try the aerial side and a new love was born again. As of September, Jordan has celebrated 4 years of practicing aerials and has no intentions of stopping. The continuous learning and challenges keep her on her toes and give her the want to excel and work harder, even if that means stretching to gain flexibility.
When it comes to teaching Jordan loves teaching beginners and helping them learn to love aerials and seeing their faces when they defeat their first nemesis move. That aside, with her barre background she enjoys being able to push people, especially when it comes to conditioning. Jordan’s own personal style when it comes to preforming is “nerdy but dirty”, she enjoys the sexiness she can bring to a routine but knows she can be incredibly awkward, so she embraces it and makes it work.
In the muggle world Jordan is the Member Coordinator for the Insurance Brokers Association of Saskatchewan, summed up she works with insurance brokers but does not sell insurance, it is not as boring as it sounds, she promises. Jordan recently moved to Regina from Saskatoon in April 2018 and she is so happy she found the FLY community to welcome her into the city and give her a second home to go to play and fly!
Aside from work and aerials Jordan describes herself as two things, an adventurer and an 80 year old. With a love of travel, hiking, mud runs and car restoration you would never guess that there is an 80 year old heart in her. You can always find Jordan with a pair of knitting needles, she doesn’t travel without them, cross stitch patterns on her phone and her nose in a book.
Ashley has been pole dancing since late 2010. She loves aerial arts, focus on muscle engagement, perverse humour, and her dog. Her goal as an instructor is to help teach the tools you need to explore on your own and find your distinct style. Ashley’s favourite
areas of pole are flow, floor, basework and dancing in heels. She is
infinitely impressed by power moves but, personally, it’s not her jam.
Ashley started her journey as an instructor, teaching Liquid
Motion and Sultry Pole in 2016.
Ashley’s favourite thing about pole and aerial fitness is that the learning
is endless. There are so many different moves, styles, music choices…There’s something for everyone and always something new to learn.
Her favourite moves are anything that involves sliding around on the tip of
the toe box or grinding those hips!
