The sport of pole fitness is growing rapidly, yet due to the lack of any sanctioning body, participants are on their own in terms of getting to any provincial, national or worldwide competitions.
To address this problem, the members at Femme Natale's Pole Fitness studio in Cumberland have made up and will sell a calendar. All proceeds of sales will go toward members' travel expenses to competitions.
This effort is being led by Nadyne Moldowan, the 2012 B.C. pole fitness champion, who placed second in the 2012 national competition, and Natalie Fustier, the other owner of Femme Natale's Pole Fitness Studio.
"This is about future pole fitness athletes being able to further their abilities. It can be awfully expensive to compete, especially if an athlete is going to an international competition," says Moldowan.
The calendars are be available at the Romance Shop, Jack'd Clothing and Femme Natale's studio in Cumberland and the soon-to-open location on McPhee in Courtenay.
