Pole champ has eye on worlds

For Nadyne Moldowan, co-owner of Femme Natale’s Pole Fitness Studio in the Comox Valley, there’s no place like pole.

B.C. POLE FITNESS champion Nadyne Moldowan hopes to compete at the world championships.

For 28-year-old Nadyne Moldowan, co-owner of Femme Natale’s Pole Fitness Studio in the Comox Valley, there’s no place like pole.

Climbing off the couch and onto the pole was a liberating experience for the pharmacy technician, who says pole fitness combined all the elements she was looking for — a head-to-toe workout for the outside, while feeling like a goddess on the inside.

Nadyne has been practising pole fitness for over four years now and got her first taste of competition at Miss Pole Canada in 2011, taking home People’s Choice in the Pro Division.

With the title of 2012 B.C. Pole Fitness Champion and Canadian Pole Fitness Championship runner-up under her belt, Nadyne has proven she has what it takes to win.

She hopes to continue that success at the 2013 World Pole Sports Championships (WPSC) held in London on July 10. This is a very different kind of event, the first of its kind dedicated to the athletic performance and technical aspects of pole.

Nadyne has already been selected to compete in the qualifiers for this event, and also has been selected as a semi-finalist in the International Pole Championships in Singapore on Nov. 30.

Femme Natale’s has a goal to fundraise up to $5,000 to help make Nadyne’s endeavour to compete a reality this year. All donations are greatly appreciated.

To find out more about how you can help, or for further information, contact her at the studio at 250-218-3269 or e-mail Femmenatale@hotmail.com.

The studio is holding the grand opening of the new Courtenay location April 21 from noon to 5. There will be snacks and entertainment in which students of Femme Natale’s will be performing choreographies on pole, chair and floor.

A silent auction will also be held with prizes donated by Comox Valley Businesses and local talented individuals.
