Welcome to Beautiful Bodies

Beautiful Bodies Fitness embraced its members in 2020. Bree, the owner, offers small private classes at her home studio in Surprise, AZ. We will expand into our larger studio in January 2022. 

Beautiful Bodies Fitness has a welcoming atmosphere for every student that comes through our doors.​ All of our instructors are dedicated to assisting you and your fitness and health goals. 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. All offered classes (pole and non-pole) are designed to empower you and your individuality. We want you to feel accomplished at the end of each class, where you are dying to come back for more. 

 

With every class, we are deepening our physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and intellectual selves, which positively shines through in all aspects of our lives. We gain a sense of achievement and accomplishment each time we complete our goals, both big and small. We have created a great community, where everyone is supported, loved, and encouraged by our Beautiful Bodies family.

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, 2 & 3 certified pole instructor through the Pole Fitness Alliance (PFA); with whom she is also a Master Trainer for Arizona. Bree is also a certified Holistic Nutritionist through the AFPA, as well as personal trainer certified.

Bree is happily married, has two baby boys, and loves to inspire others to find for themselves the joys in their lives.

Kari Ruiz

Kari 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.

TESTIMONIALS

"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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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!"

SAVANNAH GOMEZ - 2021

"Pole dance is great for all ability levels and the teachers at Beautiful Bodies are so friendly and welcoming! Beyond the physical benefits, the amount of laughs and friendships made is well worth it. Give it a try - you'll keep coming back!"

STEPHANIE STEVENS - 2021

"Very open and encouraging environment. Everyone is really nice and trustworthy. I like how we are challenged to be better for ourselves. I also like how people will help you out whenever you need it. Pole fitness is a very fun sport, and Bree does an awesome job at running things to be as smooth as possible!"

SAVANNAH HERMENAU - 2021

'"I can’t wait for the studio to open!! I’ve taken classes with Bree for over a year now. She is an amazing teacher. Pole fitness is also an amazing full body workout. Try it!!! You won’t regret it!"

NICHOLE COLLEN - 2021

"Bree, my instructor, has been nothing short of encouraging, inspiring and motivating! Every instructor is certified to keep you safe and exceptionally knowledgeable about the body. They are also remarkably personable and trustworthy. I couldn't picture myself gaining the confidence and skills that I have anywhere else!"

PAYTON MEDUNA - 2021

"Best way to have fun while getting a great work out! I'm a girl that was never in dance, gymnastics, cheer, etc. so starting classes was going way out of my 'comfort' zone, however they make you feel so comfortable in the beautiful body you were given. These classes have helped me learn to love and embrace myself. It's also the best way to meet great friends!"

CHRISTINA SYPNIEWSKI - 2021

"I love learning and teaching at Beautiful Bodies! Bree is a wonderful, sweet, and amazing instructor and owner, and she does her absolute best to make the environment a comfortable and fun place for everyone who walks through the door. Bree's studio feels like a second home and we all have very quickly become a loving and supportive second family to one another."
