Hello! My name is Chantelle Beasley – owner and operator of Aradia Fitness Sherwood Park and Edmonton! My passion for pole fitness started in 2011, upon the deployment of my fiance – now husband, to Afghanistan. I wanted to try something new to pass the time, and pole fitness had me hooked! I am not a fan of the gym, or typical workout classes. Pole fitness finally didn’t feel like working out, and I didn’t make excuses to go to classes! Here I am, 5 years later with three studios under my belt! My confidence and self-esteem has improved, along with my core and upper body strength. I am thankful for my incredible team of instructors that help make Aradia what it is today! Everybody has their own strengths and talents, and we are so lucky to be able to provide our students with a plethora of experience and skills!

Other fun facts!
I enjoy CrossFit and Circus Arts. I am quite the homebody with my husband and fur babies. I also study Social Work part time at Grant MacEwan University!

Christine H

Instructor

Christine began pole dancing in 2009 and was has been instructing with Aradia since Chantelle first opened the Sherwood Park Studio in 2011. Her favorite part of teaching is seeing her students’ confidence grow and watching new friendships form. Her favorite spin is the Pretzel Spin, and pretty much any other variation of a Spiral. She loves working on new transitions and combos. She won 1st Runner Up (Amateur) in the 2012 Alberta Pole Dance Championships, and went on to compete at the Canadian Pole Fitness Championships 2012 (Amateur).
Outside of Aradia Christine holds a B. Comm and is a Corporate Sales Manager for 3 John Deere dealerships. She also enjoys afternoons at the gun range, travelling, refinishing furniture and designing jewellery / accessories. When she’s not busy with one of her many hobbies you’ll find her curled up with her fur baby Lily, or sipping frozen cocktails on a boat somewhere.
Her favorite part about Aradia is all the amazing friendships she has now because of it. Many of her best friends have been met in our studios and she hopes everyone meets some new great friends here.

Elyse

Elyse joined a pole class while living overseas in 2015 and has been absolutely hooked ever since! When she’s not on the pole, Elyse works with special needs children and teaches music classes for little ones. She’s passionate about healthy living and is looking forward to becoming a certified holistic nutritionist. Her favourite moves are Hood Ornament and Sleeping Beauty. Elyse is excited to bring her teaching skills and her love for health and fitness to Aradia.

She also spends time training in circus arts, tai chi and relaxing at home with her four fur babies.

Ashley S

Instructor

Ashley fell in love with pole fitness in the beginning of 2014 after attending a bachelorette party at Aradia Fitness on Whyte Ave. With over 10 years of experience as a gymnast she quickly found pole to perfectly compliment her gymnastic background while at the same time expanding a new aerial skill set. Her favourite moves are diamond spin, ballerina and titanic. Outside of pole she is finishing up her undergraduate degree in university, enjoys hiking in the mountains and traveling.

Stephanie S

Instructor

Stephanie first started pole dancing in 2008 at ClubMynx in Saskatoon! After growing up taking and teaching dance classes, she wanted to try something new and instantly fell in love with the physical challenges and friendships that came with advancing through the levels of pole classes. Stephanie works full time in the concrete construction industry and is currently pursuing her yoga teacher certification. When she is not in the studio, Stephanie enjoys spending time at the lake, working on aerial hammock/silks, and trying new recipes in the kitchen!
