Meet the Allure Fitness Team
“Don’t practice until you get it right. Practice until you can’t get it wrong”
Owner, Director, Teacher
As owner of Allure Fitness Inc., I get to meet fabulous people every day. We see all shapes, sizes and ages, and seeing students having fun and building excitement in classes makes my day, every day! The goal I set for my staff and myself is to offer challenging workouts while providing you the opportunity to work at your own level and stay motivated. I started as a pole dancing student once upon a time too, and the learning has not stopped since – every week, new moves are attempted, and conquered soon after (some remain a work in progress for quite some time)! This hobby brought me my passion in life – fitness! I opened Allure in 2009 with the vision of having a place for women to have fun while they work out, and escape for a little while. Since then, so many of our classes and programs have evolved and been redeveloped; it never ceases to amaze me.
Since I set the bar high for all of us here at Allure, I do my best to keep on top of all things health-, wellness-, yoga- and fitness-related. My personal trainings include pole (of course!), Pilates, Trigger Point Therapy, 200HR Yoga Teacher Training at De La Sol Yoga, 200HR Yoga Teacher Training at Anjeli Yoga, 40HR Yin Training, Personal Training certifications through Can-Fit-Pro and ISSA, Sports Nutrition certification through ISSA, and numerous workshops and one-on-one trainings with other yoga, pole and fitness professionals in the industry to make sure you are receiving the absolute best classes and workouts possible.
Feel free to get in touch with me any time you have a question; I’m here to help!
I’m looking forward to seeing you in classes soon!
The Alluring Instructors
When I found pole fitness, I never looked back! I started at Allure a year into my pole career as a student. I had made my way though quite a few levels of the pole program when I saw the ad for instructor positions. I thought to myself, “That would be the coolest job ever!” So I applied. I went through the in-house training program here at Allure and completed my Personal Training certification through the International Sports Science Association. I am also PFIC Certified in Aerial Hoop! I love teaching at Allure. I get very excited for all of my students when they learn something new or master a move they have been working on for a while. I love to watch and be a part of my students’ transformations; it is probably the greatest feeling in the world.
Allure is a place where you can achieve your fitness goals in a safe and encouraging environment. In 2011, I started taking Yoga and Boot Camp classes and eventually decided to step out of my comfort zone and try a pole class. I’m so incredibly glad that I did! I have gained strength I never knew I was capable of and have learned so much. The most rewarding thing as an instructor is being able to help students achieve their goals and seeing the excitement in their faces when they do. I look forward to seeing you in class!
I have always been interested in different forms of dance so in 2015 when my best friend suggested we try pole dancing, I couldn’t resist! I was hooked after my first class and immediately wanted to try everything on the schedule. I also was attending Mohawk College for Health, Wellness, & Fitness at the time so when the opportunity arose to join the team I jumped at the chance. Since then, I’ve trained in almost everything Allure offers! Getting to see students achieve their goals in classes always brings a smile to my face and I can’t wait to see you crush yours too!
After being introduced to pole by my sister’s best friend at an open house, I wanted to try pole classes. I found a wagjag for Polekitten 101 at Allure and I haven’t stopped since. Not only is pole a fun way to work out and gain so much strength, but you become part of an amazing and supportive community. I became an instructor to share my love of pole and fitness with other women, and to help them gain the strength, confidence, and friendships that pole has given me! Allure is so much more than a place to work out! I can’t wait to see you in class!
From the moment I stepped into Allure Fitness Inc I knew this was a studio I wanted to be apart of. Pole dancing has always been a huge passion of mine as it’s brought me new strengths, confidence, many friends, and an eagerness to learn and grow my own skills. Being in a position to share this passion of mine with you is like a dream come true for me. I’m super excited to see you in the studio!
After spending a month in Europe in 2016, I completely lost my motivation in the gym and was inspired to learn to pole dance, after seeing someone in Europe show off her strength through pole tricks. I did a google search when I got home and found Allure. I signed up for Polekitten 101 and took advantage of the intro special to try the fun drop ins I heard about, and have been hooked ever since.
I started at Allure with the Get Fit Challenge. The selection of drop-in classes with the six week course was my gateway back into fitness. All of the instructors are knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. My favorite class to take is Zumbalicious, a fast paced high-energy cardio workout to fun music. I decided to go for Zumba Instructor training when approached and asked to teach classes at Allure. I absolutely love to see people come into my class!
In 2015, I was looking for a different form of exercise that didn’t consist of running on treadmills. I saw an ad for Allure and that same year I attended my first pole class. I have been enjoying pole, aerial hoop and group exercise classes ever since. I became an instructor because I love helping students reach their goals and step out of their comfort zones in such a positive environment.
I have always loved to dance, so in 2014 I decided to try taking Pole Kitten 101. Since then, I have absolutely fallen in love with pole dancing. Not only is it so much fun, but it has been so rewarding watching myself and all my classmates transform over the years. After a couple years of doing pole, I became a Platinum Member and started taking all the classes I possibly could. My favourite classes are Pole Flow, Ass Class and Power Barre. I am so excited to share my love of pole and fitness with you!
I went to an allure open house and lets just say, I felt home! The atmosphere was supportive, everyone was friendly, and I laughed…a lot! I enrolled in my first aerial hoop course and burlesque class that day! When I purchased my first pair of Pleasers, I was committed! Before I knew it I was a platinum member, attending multiple drop-ins a week and actually seeing results. The bonus with the membership was getting to meet and dance with such amazing ladies. I am so jazzed to be a part of the allure instructor team. I am excited to share my passion for fitness, hoop, and dance with you; while helping you achieve your own personal goals!
Fitness has always been an important part of my life. I played sports and was involved in performing in musicals and eventually discovered the gym. Working at Allure has given me a new perspective on becoming fit. I love how fun. safe, inclusive, friendly and positive our facility is! It is important to me to work alongside others who are supportive and have a positive outlook. I cannot wait to to continue my journey but to also help you along your journey. Whether I’m teaching or taking classes I can’t wait to see you around the studio! Let’s get sexy and get fit together!
In 2017 I was looking for a hard core boot camp to help me get back in shape after having my baby. I came to Allure and definitely got more than I was looking for! Not only did I lose inches and learn proper form for lifting weights, but I found a supportive and caring group of women who quickly adopted me into their family.
Now you’ll find me in Flow Yoga and Yogaburn classes. Yoga has been a part of my life since I was 16 and I’m excited to have the chance to share what I have learned with you, and look forward to seeing you in class!
The Alluring Reception Team
While attending the Hamilton Wedding Show in 2014 with my friend, I came across the Allure Fitness booth and the thought of Pole Fitness absolutely intrigued me! I signed up for PoleKitten 101 and have moved up in the levels ever since! You can also catch me working on some tricks on the Hoop, in Burlesque, or in any of the Drop-in classes!
Before Allure, I was never a consistent gym goer. I was either on the cardio machines hating every minute, or one of those New Years resolution joiners that left their membership to collect dust come February! In April 2017, a girlfriend and I decided we wanted to try something different, and focus on fun more so than working out. It was then we found Allure. After my first Pole Tease class I knew I was hooked. I purchased the three week Intro Special and before I knew it, I was coming to drop in classes every day, if not multiple times per day. Since then, I’ve been hooked on pole. It’s become my happy place after a tough day at work, a place where I can cheer on my friends and be supported in return, and the muscle transformation has been a bonus too. Allure isn’t just a gym. It’s a safe place, a community where you can come together with a group of incredible ladies to achieve your goals, as well as things you never imagined you’d be able to do. It’s become a second home, and I’m so happy to be a part of the reception team. Stop by on Saturday mornings to have a chat! And I’ll catch you most other days on my way to or from class.
One year ago, on Halloween I saw my first Allure show. I was amazed, I had to try it. I started working the front desk and I got to share my excitement of dance with so many like-minded women. The support here is truly amazing. I started doing hoop, drop ins and then finally pole. I found my home here at Allure. You can catch me at the front desk singing along to music when I’m not dancing to it in class!
I’ve always loved to try new things so I started taking pole classes at Allure about 5 years ago after Melodie convinced me to give it a go. After my first few lessons with Lauren, I was in love! Allure is such a great community to be a part of. Michelle, Lauren and the team are so encouraging and do everything they can to help you achieve your goals. I’m thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful team!
