Meet Carmen, the owner and main fitness instructor at Royalty Pole Dance. Carmen has been hooked on Pole Fitness since 2011. Growing up, she was never a dancer or gymnast and developed much slower than most pole dancers. Even though Pole Fitness brought her great difficulty, she knew that one day her body would grow strong enough to attempt tricks she never dreamed of doing. After having 2 kids, her body changed: She began to have a slower metabolism, back & hip pains, and became depressed and stuck in a limbo. She stumbled upon pole by chance and fell in love at first class. She has had the opportunity to train with award winning Champions in Utah, Las Vegas, and California, and began teaching herself when she moved to Bakersfield. Now she is thriving and hopes to share the joy and accomplishment pole has brought her. Her motto is: "If I can do it, so can YOU!"
