Welcome to PoleMoves

PoleMoves Pole Fitness Training and Certification began providing Beginner through Advanced pole teacher trainings across the U.S.A. and Mexico in 2009. Since that time, we have developed an Advanced Training and a group of Master Trainers. PoleMoves is working with other pole training programs across the country to provide instructors with a National Certification Exam, as well as working with a Non-Profit Organization, to set industry standards for pole fitness and pole dance schools and studios across the country. 

We are active in the Pole Dance Community, the Pole Fitness Alliance, the American Council on Exercise, and the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America. 

You will receive continuing education credits for the PFA, ACE, and AFAA when you attend one of our PoleMoves Pole Fitness Instructor Training courses. We invite you to explore our website to find out more about our great Pole Fitness Teacher training programs.

What Our Students Are Saying

Linda Hilton

"PoleMoves provides the science behind technique, safe spotting methods and hands on experiences. I am now teaching with confidence!"

Paulina Creque

"I had a great experience with PoleMoves training. The instructors were super informative and definitely know their pole knowledge. They have a great teaching curriculum to help with your classes, the books were extremely useful and I still use them today to help prep my lessons. You learn all aspects of Pole dancing even the science behind it which was very interesting."

Julie Tzeng

"PoleMoves was a fun and welcoming experience. The course itself was very technical and professional, which gave me a much deeper understanding of pole and improved me as a dancer."

Jimmie Smith

"After I found pole, and fell in love with it, I wanted to share it with others by becoming a teacher; PoleMoves made that possible. It was a hands-on, immersive training experience which prepared me for real-life situations. I learned how to structure a class, how to help students be successful, and how to keep everything safe and fun."

Vee Niz

"PoleMoves is built on the foundation of exercise science, which as an instructor gives me peace of mind that my classes are being taught with the principle of safety first. My instructor was attentive, knowledgeable, and patient. Her approach lent itself to more then teaching the technical aspects of pole, but to the personal side of it too."
