July – Natalie Atherley

We are pleased to announce our member of the month for July, Natalie Atherley. Natalie does both aerial and pole courses and is one of the nicest and politest girls we have all had the pleasure to meet. This is what Natalie had to say: 

 “I have been doing aerial now for 16 months and started pole this February after trying it out in a private lesson and loving it!

I joined aerial because I wanted to do something that I loved to keep fit – I’m not great at motivating myself in the gym and love classes but wanted to find something with a connection to dance. After a bit of a google search I found AOF Air, signed up and never looked back. I’d always wanted to try pole dancing but never had the confidence – after doing aerial for a year I felt stronger and was persuaded by my class mates to do a private lesson and try it out. I’d never enjoyed a work out more or felt my whole body ache after one hour the way I did after that class so thought it would be a good idea to join P4F too.

I am definitely stronger and more confident since starting pole and aerial and am loving my guns! It’s always my way of winding down after a long day at work and having a giggle with the other girls on the course helps a lot.

I started Aerial with Clare and now have Fern, and Jo teaches me Pole – they are all great instructors and constantly push me out of my comfort zone and encourage me to be my best. I couldn’t ask for more helpful, friendly and inspiring teachers.

If you’re thinking about joining, stop thinking about it and do it – it will be the best decision you’ve made this year. You’ll learn new skills, feel more confident in your life and meet some amazing people!”

Jo, Natalie’s pole instructor had this to say about her:

“Natalie is such a determined student, she comes every week with a quiet determination and she will keep practicing what she has been taught in class until it is perfect. Natalie is such a pleasure to teach. Well done and keep up the hard work #powerhouse xx”

Well done Natalie!
Lots of love

The AOF & Pole4Fitness team xx
