Originally from Spain, Denise is an ex-rhythmic gymnast with 9 year’s competition experience. She studied Ballet to complement her gymnastics training and then moved onto Funk, Hip Hop and other styles of dance when she finished gymnastics.
Denise made the move to study and work in Sydney eight years ago. Struggling to find a form of fitness as fulfilling as gymnastics and dance, a friend suggested she try a pole class, emphasising “there is nothing like it.” Denise had her doubts but could not get the thought out of her head, so she made the life changing decision to give pole a try!
Four years later, Denise is totally addicted to pole and started competing about a year ago. Incredibly determined to achieve whatever she puts her mind to, this pocket rocket is the current NSW Pole Amateur Champion, A.C.T Semi-Professional Champion and First Runner up of the Australian Pole Championships in the Amateur category.
Her newfound love for pole, fitness and helping others has led Denise to become a certified personal trainer, Matwork Pilates Instructor, and Xpert Pole Instructor. She is currently training intensively with Jen to become a PoleFit Instructor.
Passionate about helping pole dancers progress safely on the pole, she is always looking to expand her knowledge of pole dance, biomechanics, strength, conditioning flexibility.
Denise believes there is nothing more satisfying than fulfilling your goals and helping others achieve their own. She says, “it is almost impossible to get bored doing pole because you are constantly thinking where to put your hand, turn your body or in the case of being upside down "which one is your right or left side”.
