Unveiled Fitness is a concept in women’s workouts that truly focuses on the reason women go to the gym, diet, run, go to yoga, kick box, spin—it’s all to look better and build a strong self-image. But we don’t stop there. We want our members to be able to feel amazingly sexy during the workout. Our instructors turn the “taboo” of Pole Dancing into the best workout you’ve ever experienced. Every studio is different and we invite you to come see why we believe we offer the best environment and the most engaging, professional and supportive instructors around.
Unveiled Fitness really is a place Where Workouts are Beautiful.
The greatest workout of all times! A single class includes an hour of core training and an hour of pole work. I have lost twenty pounds in the last nine months, have more muscles and less body fat that any other time in my life and Unveiled is the difference. I hope to be 90 years old and still dancing at this studio.
Unveiled is nothing short of fantastic. This studio has it all; big, comfortable rooms, plenty of poles, no mirrors, soft, flattering lighting, knowledgable, encouraging instructors and supportive classmates. Whether you are looking to improve your gravity-defying pole acrobatics, simply work on letting out your inner seductress, or just get the best workout of your life, this studio is the place to be!
I can’t say enough about this place. I started here a couple years ago and got in the best shape of my life. I took a break while I was pregnant, and all I could think about was when could I get back in there. Not only is it addicting and fun, but everyone there (including all the instructors) are SO nice and genuine. I look foward to my mondays!
Why Pole Dancing?
When one thinks of “women’s fitness,” it’s usually in the context of exercises designed to lose pounds, tighten those glutes or flatten the stomach — the things women seem to be most concerned about, physically. Sensuality and feeling sexy aren’t things women think about as part of the workout. Unveiled Fitness provides women a completely unique way to get in shape and boost their self-esteem at the same time.
Pole Dancing is one of the most comprehensive and results-oriented workouts possible. It demands the strength of gymnastics, the focus of Yoga and gets the heart racing better than any treadmill. What makes Pole Dancing so different, though, is that women don’t think of it as a workout. Instead, they are absorbed in the moves, the music, and the moment; free to express themselves in a way that they couldn’t imagine in a gym. The reality is, however, that Pole Dancing is a fantastic workout.
Despite its intensity and results, Pole Dancing moves at your pace. As your strength grows and your flexibility increases, you naturally want to try different moves; not just because they will further your toning and conditioning, but because there is something empowering and uniquely female about being able to perform Pole Dancing at a higher level. That’s why women find this kind of workout much more enjoyable and much easier to stick with. It is less of a requirement to stay fit and more of a guilty pleasure; something to look forward to rather than something forced. Results come faster when you enjoy what you are doing and we’re confident that you’ll keep coming back for the results and an experience that only a woman could appreciate.
Unveiled Fitness Pole Dancing Studio in Orange County was created as a place where women can challenge and respect themselves, to be empowered by their femininity, and to surrender all judgments. In my search for a creative outlet, I discovered pole dancing. As a child, I spent my youth doing different styles of dance and later, tried various forms of fitness. I found that not only did pole dancing feed my body’s need for energy and fitness, but it has nourished my soul in a way that I never expected. It was out of this passion that I’ve opened Unveiled Fitness based on my desire to incorporate feminine sensuality with a higher standard of athleticism. As the art of pole dancing becomes more popular, Unveiled Fitness incorporates a more rigorous workout without sacrificing the sensuality of the movement. I firmly believe that, through pole dancing, women are given the opportunity to embrace and accept their bodies along with their spirits in their quest for fitness.
A few years ago, I was exposed to pole dancing as an alternative to regular fitness workouts. The concept of combining sensuality with strength and flexibility was intriguing so I thought I’d give pole dancing a try. It was difficult and challenging, but pole dancing was also fun, exciting and unexpectedly soothing. I was hooked! I was in awe at the way the women moved as they danced, I vowed after that first class that no matter how long it would take I would someday move that beautifully.
Little did I know then that I would eventually teach pole dancing at Unveiled Fitness and share this amazing movement with other women. I am so blessed to be able to watch women achieve their health and fitness goals, surprise themselves with their grace and strength, and gain a new found peace and confidence with their bodies through pole dancing. It is truly rewarding to be a part of their transformation. This transformation inspired Kelly to co-create a digital magazine, called Emerge Today
. Emerge Today was created for women that find themselves healing from life’s setbacks (major or minor). She hopes this magazine will serve as a resource for women that are moving forward from divorce, illness, death of loved one, or just a longing or desire for something more meaningful in their life.
While trying to pull myself out of a dark time in my life, I decided to search for a dance studio for exercise as I have a background in competitive and contemporary dance. When I found out about Unveiled Fitness, I thought I’d give pole a try. It took one class for me to fall in love. Never have I felt as free and alive, able to pull from my emotional extremes and let them flow through my movement, surrounded by supportive women. This is the healthiest and most empowering form of therapy, body and soul, that I’ve ever come across. Now, as an instructor, I am beyond excited to have the amazing opportunity to guide others on their own pole journeys at the very studio that helped me reclaim my self of self.
Pole dancing motivated me to start exercising. When I was young, I took ballet and tennis, but was never passionate about either. I tried going to the gym, but I found the whole gym environment to be intimidating and impersonal. I had heard about pole dancing for a while, but didn’t have the guts to try it. After a breakup, I decided to give it a shot. It changed my life! Pole dancing made fitness fun and I wanted to go all the time. It gave me confidence and a sense of achievement after every class. Unveiled Fitness has opened me up to a type of fitness that allows me to express myself and to get in touch with my femininity and sensuality. It has affected every part of my life and has become something I’m passionate about. Unveiled Fitness is a safe place that allows women to come into-their-own, and be who they truly are. I am excited to share my passion for pole dancing and to help women with their confidence, sensuality and fitness.
I have been involved in all types of dance for the majority of my life. However, when I was taking several dance classes a week, I felt slightly removed from the material. I just happily went through the motions. While dance has always brought enormous joy to my life, I never made an emotional connection to my body’s rhythm until I started taking classes at Unveiled Fitness. I have to admit, I was intimidated by the idea of pole dancing for fitness! Once inside the studio, I felt everything had fallen into place. Here was a place where I could explore my sensuality through movement and strength training. In pole dancing, there is never a dull moment. It is simply impossible not to be challenged, no matter how advanced you become.
Never have I met so many welcoming, intelligent, fun and supportive women. It is nothing less than an honor to be allowed to teach class at Unveiled Fitness.
Like many girls, I have had my share of insecurities; my body, my relationships and my confidence. When I stumbled upon pole dancing at Unveiled Fitness, I was scared. After my first class however, I was extremely intrigued and from then on I was hooked. I was so touched by the support of the other girls and instructors. There has not been a week in the past few years where I have missed a pole dancing class. Not only has Unveiled Fitness fulfilled my fitness needs, but it has also given me the opportunity to develop close relationships, gain more self confidence and expand my personal growth through dance and fitness. I feel honored to now guide our students through the journey that I have experienced over my tenure with Unveiled Fitness.
I have been active since a very young age. At an early age, I started playing softball, even attending the junior Olympics. My mom always had me in dance classes; that is, until I decided to quit at the age of 12. I can still remember the music pumping in my jazz classes and loving the feeling of the bass pounding all around me. Even though I quit dancing, the desire never left me completely. I have tried it all when it comes to fitness, boxing, yoga, Pilates, running, ect. I loved all of these activities and saw results from them, but I was never passionate about any of it. I had seen advertisements for pole dancing as fitness and was extremely interested in trying it, but was scared to go by myself. I finally worked up the nerve and after my first class at Unveiled Fitness, I was hooked. I couldn’t wait to get to dance class on Monday nights; the gym paled in comparison to flying around the pole. Nothing could top the euphoria of pole dancing. My first class was almost five years ago, and I cannot imagine anything else in my life being as fulfilling as pole dancing. I am so excited to share this joy with my students.
Music and dance have always been a deep passion of mine since I was a child and uponexperiencing Unveiled Fitness I knew it was going to be something very special. Throughout my junior and high school years, I was a cheerleader and became involved in gymnastics but always found myself wanting to make a deeper connection to the music that others never quite understood. Coming from a large Latin family, music and dance is a form of self-expression that is practically infused in the blood when you are born and has been fuel to my passion and desire for dance. Since beginning my journey here at Unveiled, I have had the pleasure of meeting and growing with such an amazing group of women that come from all walks of life. We are eternally bound together by our incredible journey. At Unveiled, I have found inspiration, courage, strength, self-acceptance, and confidence through dance and I am beyond the moon excited to share this gift with others. Unveiled has never been just a dance/fitness studio but a place of safety, empowerment, and passion for the everyday women to flourish. I am so honored to have the opportunity to teach at a place I call home.
Many times in life, the small, seemingly insignificant moments can offer us unprecedented awareness. My epiphany came several years ago when, as a wife and mother of three small children, I was searching for an exercise routine that would keep me challenged and engaged. I had tried several local gyms and fitness classes, but none of them seemed to be the right fit. I found myself becoming bored with the same predictable expectations-not just from the exercises, but from myself as well.
Then, one day, quite by accident, I came across an ad for something called “pole fitness”. Like most people, I almost immediately dismissed it; after all, I was 38, not in the greatest shape, had absolutely no dance background, and was afraid of heights. I allowed myself a moment to consider the intriguing prospect. Then, I did what most people do-I returned to my old, comfortable routine. The idea, however, became a tiny, quiet voice in my head. Could I do it? Could I ever have the confidence to be one of those women who threw caution to the wind?
A few weeks later, when another ad for pole fitness from a place called “Unveiled Fitness” came across my computer screen, I decided to take a chance. I drove to Unveiled Fitness and apprehensively took my first class. From that moment on, I was absolutely hooked. Thus began my journey-a journey of self discovery, sensuality, dance, strength, courage and exploration. Pole strengthened my mind, my body, and my spirit. I have done many challenging things in my life; after all, I had a previous career in law enforcement. I was also familiar with the rigors of raising three young children…but this challenge was different. It pushed me on a personal, introspective level. Each minor achievement was so incredibly rewarding that I couldn’t wait for each class.
This experience was about me helping myself to become better. It wasn’t dependent on a supervisor’s assessment,or on another’s satisfaction. It was about allowing myself time without apologizing for it. It’s not selfish and it’s not trivial, though we sometimes allow ourselves to believe that. I’ve learned that a better me means I can emotionally and physically be a better wife, mother, caretaker and person. Three years later, my love for pole is just as great as my first day, and I am grateful to be able to help other women begin their journey at the same studio where my journey began.
Working as Certified Personal Trainer and Health & Fitness Specialist for the past 10 years, my passion for fitness is endless. I am constantly motivated by watching people achieve their goals that at one time seemed unattainable. My road as a Fitness Specialist had begun at a young age while playing sports and being active. My career path took course while studying to become a Physical Therapist. During that time I worked with Orthopedic Surgeons and Rehab Specialists. The numerous injuries and unneccessary doctor appointments had turned on a new light for me. This had inspired me to venture into the Health and Fitness field. I had quickly found my passion in teaching people to create a healthy, strong, and functional body.
