Welcome to Beautiful Bodies
Beautiful Bodies Fitness embraced its members in April 2020. Bree, the owner, currently offers classes at her home studio in Surprise, AZ. We will expand into a larger studio in October 2021.
Beautiful Bodies has a welcoming atmosphere for each individual. Pole dance fitness is truly for everyone; of any size, age, and fitness level. We strive to make fitness enjoyable and challenging. Pole dance fitness allows us to express ourselves in such a liberating manner as we build our confidence, strength, endurance, and coordination. Handstands and acrobatics encourage us to learn, and be comfortable with, balancing upside down; as well as deeply understanding our bodies and how we can move them.
With every class, we are expanding our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual selves that shines through in all aspects of our lives. We gain a sense of achievement and accomplishment each time we hit our goals, both big and small. This sport has created a magnificent community in which we are all supported and encouraged by our pole family. Beautiful Bodies is honored to contribute to our growing pole community of strong and empowering women, men, teens, and children.
Meet Our Beautiful Instructors
Bree, the owner, began her pole journey in June of 2017. She came from a competitive gymnastics and dance background and was searching for a sport that would allow her to express herself the way she has always felt the most comfortable. She quickly realized that pole dance fitness filled that void and has impacted all areas of her life in such a positive light. She gained confidence, self-love, patience, increased happiness, a greater sense of health, and so much more. Pole fitness is truly one of her greatest passions.
Bree wanted to provide a safe space for all those seeking an atmosphere where they can create, grow, feel comfortable in their own skin, and genuinely be themselves; so she created Beautiful Bodies. Bree is a level 1-3 certified pole instructor through the Pole Fitness Alliance (PFA); with whom she is also a Master Trainer for Arizona.
Bree is happily married, has two baby boys, and loves to inspire others to find for themselves the joys in their lives.
Amber discovered yoga 13 years ago in college. Always being drawn back to the practice over the years she decided to pursue Yoga teacher training and completed becoming a RYT 200 in early 2021. To her, Yoga brings a sense of peace and a chance to challenge the mind and body together. She believes Yoga is for everyone. Each practice is a chance to learn more about ourselves.
Amber is passionate about health and fitness. She is an A.C.E. certified Personal Trainer & Health Coach. She enjoys traveling, being outdoors, and cooking. She is married and has 2 cats.
Christina started her pole journey in June 2020. She was introduced to pole through a family member. She had zero dance background, but understood musicality as she participated in high school choir. At first, she was shy about trying pole fitness. However, the thought lingered in her mind and she finally attended her first class (with Bree); where she became completely infatuated with this sport.
She loves pole and is grateful that she can healthily express her emotions through dance as a way to process all of life's events. Pole dancing is her therapy. She is grateful to share this passion with many others. Christina is a level 1 PFA certified instructor.
In Christina's free time, she loves to paint, explore fun terrain, jet ski, and so much more. Outdoors is where she likes to spend her free time. She lives in Surprise, with her boyfriend and their furry children, Nova and Draco!
Kari Ruiz began her pole fitness journey only a short time ago, but it has been a long time in the making. She spent the ages of 3 to 12 competitively dancing before taking a fourteen year hiatus from body movement. During that time she got her degree in teaching and adopted two loving dogs who she babies more than children. In 2018, she began taking aerial art classes, bouncing between hammock, lyra, silks, and trapeze with whatever suited her mood at the time. An invitation from a friend to her first pole class started her interest in pole fitness where she has used her aerial skills and strength to quickly master this new apparatus.
Kari loves pole fitness due to the fact that each class presents a new challenge and provides a feeling of accomplishment every time she goes. Kari is a level 1 PFA certified instructor.
Megan has been pole dancing since February 2017. She was raised in a fitness household but struggled with finding a sport that fit. When she discovered pole fitness, it was love at first sight. She fell in love with the challenge the sport brought her; but mostly fell in love with the strong, confident, woman that pole dance fitness helped her to become.
Though Megan is new to teaching pole, she has immense experience as a Pilates instructor and is currently studying to become a physical therapist. She has always had a passion for healing through movement and finds so much joy in teaching fitness. Megan is a level 1 PFA certified instructor.
Megan is married with two dogs, three cats, and a fish named Elton John.

"I have known Bree for years and she is truly an amazing person! I have had an on again off again relationship with pole and this past month of working with Bree has truly been a blessing. She helped me rediscover my love for the sport and consistently encourages me to dig down deep and reach my full potential. In just a few short weeks, Bree has managed to help me increase my endurance and find the inner confidence that sometimes goes lacking. I highly recommend Beautiful Bodies to anyone looking to find a fun, creative way to workout, build strength, and confidence!"
SHAWN HUGHES - MAY 2020
"From the first moment I met Bree, I was impressed by her talent and in awe of her passion. I have known her for many years-both as a friend and as my pole instructor. Bree is always the first to encourage and the last to let you give up. Her beautiful words of encouragement give you strength even when you are upside down & tangled in knots. I have been doing pole fitness for 3 years and there is no place I would rather call home than the Beautiful Bodies studio. It is a loving and safe place to come dance your heart out, sweat out your stress, and be surrounded by gorgeous souls all supporting each other!"
MEGAN SKINNER - MAY 2020
"Pole dancing is one of those sports that can be a little intimidating when you start and I have to admit that even after a few years, even I struggle with my own insecurities. But since I've started taking classes with Bree, her motivation and patience has helped me start seeing past them. As an instructor, Bree is not only inspiring, but with every class she is always positive in helping you find the ability and strength to become the best version of a pole dancer that you can be. I can honestly say that at Beautiful Bodies, you will find a studio that will encourage you, challenge you, and help you grow in many ways."
ESPIE PEQUENO - MAY 2020
"I have been taking pole classes with Bree for 4 months now and I am absolutely in love.

It makes me feel confident, sexy and strong. I think Beautiful Bodies is such an amazing place and will always continue to practice my new favorite hobby."
CORA NELSON - MAY 2020
"As a guy who hates working out in the gym this is a really fun way to exercise. Bryanna is a great instructor who teaches very well, which is good considering I have no dance or gymnastics back ground. I went with my wife and we both really enjoy it."
KORWIN NELSON - MAY 2020
"Absolutely love! Best workout I’ve ever gotten. I’m an ADHD type at the gym and never felt like I got a complete workout. I’ve gained so much strength and confidence since beginning in July of 2020. I love it so much, I decided to get certified myself! So grateful to be a part of the Beautiful Bodies family! If you are looking for a good workout, a way to boost your self-esteem, and a good group of friends, then this is it!"
