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, 7 years later with four 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, baby girl and fur babies. I also study Social Work part time at Grant MacEwan University!

Betty

Pole and Hoop Instructor

Betty began her pole fitness and aerial hoop journeys in New Brunswick. She began teaching in 2013 and joined the Aradia family in 2015 when she moved to Alberta. She is an avid pole fitness competitor and has been competing since 2012 in both the Semi-Pro and Pro Divisions. She won first place at the 2013 East Coast Pole Championships, second-runner up at the CPFA 2016 Alberta Pole Championships and competed at the CPFA Nationals 2017 in the Semi-Pro Division.  She is currently preparing for the 2018 CPFA Toronto Pro Show in the Aerial Hoop Level 2 Division.
Betty is passionate about pole fitness, aerial hoop, coffee, and cats. She comes from a Personal Training background.  You can find her at the studio teaching Pole Fitness and Aerial Hoop at all levels and bootcamps.

Alyssa

Pole Instructor

Alyssa started pole fitness as a way to change up her workout routine, add some excitement to her everyday life, and build confidence.  She has a Master’s degree in Library and Information Sciences, and when she’s not on the pole, she’s often working with archival documents at the Provincial Archives of Alberta.  Alyssa used to fence internationally before finding pole fitness, and holds her certification in both coaching and refereeing for fencing.  Now she spends her time choreographing lyrical pole routines, training for competitions, and working on her flexibility.  As a mother to an energetic little girl, she encourages all women to embrace the freedom and stress relief dance can provide, and is especially interested in helping pregnant, post-pregnant, and plus-sized dancers.

Jessica

Pole and Hoop Instructor/Studio Manager - Sherwood Park/Merchandise Manager

Jessica is a stay at home mom of 3 children.  Before pole came into her life, Jessica suffered from self esteem and body image issues.  After having children, her body had changed to something she wasn’t comfortable in.  Pole fitness has made her feel more confident in herself, physically, mentally and emotionally and she loves to share the joy that pole brought her to all of her students. 

She has been pole dancing since 2014 and placed in the top 2 for her division at the 2017 Alberta Pole Fitness Championships and went on to perform at the 2017 Canadian National Pole Fitness Championships.  She also placed in the top 4 in the Semi-Pro Pole Drama division for the 2018 National Pole Theatre Canada competition and is preparing to bring her routine to the stage this June.  Jessica’s favorite move is the shoulder mount and anything she can lever!

Jenna

Pole and Hoop Instructor

Jenna started pole dancing in 2013.  She started as a alternative day to her regular gym schedule and instantly fell in love with the constant learning and challenge pole created.  Jenna’s daytime job is a piping designer.  She also enjoys traveling, snowboarding, wake surfing, and circus arts.  Jenna can regularly be found dropping into various Aradia classes as a student to continue to learn new things and observe other ways to teach moves, or sometimes just to have her butt kicked into better shape by a fellow instructor (which she finds very fun)!

Jenna is also a certified Fitness Instructor, a 200hr Yoga Instructor, Aerial Hoop Certified Instructor, and is CanFitPro Certified as well.

Madelaine

Pole Instructor

Madelaine took her first pole dance class in 2010 and immediately knew she needed to learn more! As a lifelong dancer, she is fascinated by the new shapes and movements made possible when the pole is incorporated into dance. She became an instructor to share what she’s learned with others and loves the moments when students exceed their own expectations and discover something new. Madelaine is also a ballet and a 500-hour yoga instructor.

Lisa

Pole, Hoop and Aerial Yoga Instructor

Lisa started pole dancing in March 2013 at the Jasper Ave location, and began teaching in November 2014 at the Kingsway studio. Coming from a dance background as a teen, becoming an instructor was literally a dream come true.  She loves teaching parties, privates, workshops, and Pole 101 through to the Expert level, but teaching choreography in Pole Flow and Sexy Flow holds a special place in her heart.  She also teaches aerial yoga and aerial hoop, and holds her certification in Aircat Aerial Yoga L1, CPFA Aerial Hoop, and is currently obtaining her NCCP Level 1.  Sexy style is her favorite style, but also enjoys dynamic combos and lyrical flows.  Her favorite pole moves include jade split, sleeping beauty, ayesha, and backwards spin.
 
Once upon a time Lisa was a carpenter’s apprentice, and hopes to eventually complete her Red Seal – in the meantime when not in the studio she can be found slowly plucking away at her B.A. in psychology and B.Ed., and teaching swimming lessons for Strathcona County through EHLC and KLC. Outside of pole, she loves video games, salsa dancing, longboarding, surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, and cuddling with her two cats.
 
Lisa loves the fitness and the community that pole facilitates, and tries her darnedest to make her classes laugh while working out.
And “POINT YOUR F***ING TOES!!!!”

Christina

Pole and Hoop Instructor

Christina has been passionately pole dancing for over 2 and a half years. Her favourite tricks are leg switches and anything involving the diamond spin. She works at the Mayo Centre as a Registered Massage Therapist. Christina absolutely loves to dance.  She has done hip hop, Polynesian, Salsa, belly dance, African dance, and loves to dance while hula hooping.

Jenelle

Pole Instructor

Jenelle did not realize how much Aradia would change her life when she walked into her first Pole 101 class in December of 2014. She had recently come back from a Europe trip, where she had gained 25 pounds that seemed to be impossible to get rid of. After about a year of taking classes, she had fully lost that weight, gained back her confidence and her body has never felt stronger. She was hired to teach pole fitness in January of 2017 and absolutely loves being apart of such a fantastic team! She looks forward to building muscle and strength with her students each week while helping them progress in their own pole journey! She hopes to break stereotypes and show that pole fitness can be for everyone! Jenelle plays competitive fastball and basketball but pole fitness is by far her favourite way to work out!  She is constantly planning her next big trip and finding time to sneak away to work toward her goal of visiting every single country in the world! 36 down, 159 to go!
