I'm Lucy

Lucy is the owner and head instructor at Inversion Pole Fitness. She has been pole dancing for fun and fitness ever since she attended a 6 week beginners pole course back in 2006. It was through this introduction to pole dancing that she became captivated by the sport and continued to teach herself to an advanced level.

She decided to create Inversion Pole Fitness so she could share her pole dancing passion and experience with others and to enable her students to develop the strength and confidence that she has acquired through the art of pole dancing.

Lucy is first aid qualified, holds public liability and professional indemnity insurance and is a certified Xpert Pole Fitness Instructor.
