Business Spotlight: Verticality Pole Fitness

“My students motivate me—I want to bring them the best class I can possibly provide.” –Christine Spiro, Owner, Verticality Pole Fitness

Nestled comfortably in the quiet and conservative River Oaks area of Houston, TX, lies an extravagant dance and fitness studio unlike the traditional ones familiar to the neighborhood. Welcome to Verticality Pole Fitness, an innovative dance studio that offers pole dancing fitness classes that combine elements of dance, gymnastics, strength and flexibility into a fun and empowering workout as way to get fit and stay in shape.

Founder, Christine Spiro began her journey with a vision to design a workout that women (and men—yes, men) of all ages could enjoy and continue long term. Six years ago, Christine struggled with motivation during her mundane workout routine and found it difficult to remain consistent. She had heard about pole dancing, and decided to give it a try. Christine exclaims, “It was the most challenging—and fun—workout I had ever done, and I still love it today!” The rest is history. Christine opened the doors to Verticality Pole Fitness in June 2011.

While you may be thinking of exotic dancing while imagining pole dancing, understand that pole dancing is an art that has been proven as a great way to condition, tone the core and lower body, as well as stretch the muscles. The best thing is that you won’t notice you’re working out! Christine strives to design classes that are focused on having fun and building confidence, all while getting in shape. You will also appreciate the personal attention you will receive in the small classes. Spiro is dedicated to providing customers with the best experience possible. She explains, “I want to grow by satisfying the needs of our current customers. My biggest challenge is putting together a class each week that pleases our customers. I want to offer a class that is fun, challenging, and safe; which can be quite a balancing act.”

If you’re not ready for pole dancing just yet, don’t fret. Verticality Pole Fitness also offers chair and belly dance classes if those are more your speed. They also offer private lessons, as well as private parties for those who want to celebrate a special occasion, or just get a group of friends together for a fun night out. Whatever experience you’re looking for, Christine Spiro at Verticality Pole Fitness has got you covered.
