Bambi first tried pole back in the early 2000s and has watched with interest as the industry and the art form has developed and grown. She first tried hoop and silks over 10 years ago. She has been regularly training pole for eight years, hoop and silks for six, and sling for two. She sees her pole and aerial training as a journey, with ups and downs, and realises it is much more than just a fitness activity – it gives a huge sense of achievement, however small or large, and she sees how it offers benefits mentally, emotionally as well as physically. It is empowering, rewarding and a lot of fun!
Bambi has been teaching for four years, starting with NECCA training for silks and trapeze. Since then she has completed a number of Spin City instructor courses: beginner, intermediate and advanced pole; beginner and intermediate hoop; beginner sling; pole silks; grounded hoop, and anatomy and physiology. She also holds a specific children’s pole and aerial qualification, and has completed the High Performance rigging course. She is registered with the PDC as a pole instructor. She regularly updates and enhances her knowledge and understanding by taking CPD courses – whether it be workshops and private classes, updating her Safeguarding courses, or completing add on courses.
Bambi is a full time aerial fitness instructor, teaching regular scheduled group classes in Brimpton, Newbury, Andover and Wokingham. She also has regular private classes for adults and children
during weekdays and at weekends, in all disciplines. She was nominated for Spin City Instructor of the Year in 2018.
Since becoming a tutor and assessor for Spin City, Bambi has embraced this new teaching challenge and finds it immensely fulfilling. She loves seeing her students achieve things they never imagined they could, taking them on their own journey at their own pace. She finds she is rewarded as much by her students’ achievements as her own (if not more so!) and loves the whole experience.
