Name: Paula Bines
Age: 24
Year of the Fix: 2013
Location: Crawley
Campaign: Promoting Pole Fitness

I want to show pole fitness as a sport and move away from the negative connotations around it.


With the help of Fixers I would like to create a film focusing on the core conditioning exercises within pole fitness.


Not many people know it requires being strong and that it should, in theory, appeal to both men and women. 


I would like to encourage more people to give it a try, and hopefully change the negative perceptions about this sport.


Pole fitness is different and challenging as well as a lot of fun.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:


Alfie Spurgeon

Andrew Turner

Christian Lodge

David Wilson

Guy Craddock

Guy Young

Joe Spurgeon

Luke Wilson
