Featured Client - Alicia Anthony Claytor

We never know how our everyday lives effect those around us, and that is what makes our interactions with strangers and friends so much more important.  What may seem like a passing hello, could be the nicest words someone has heard all day.  A simple smile may be the uplifting reminder that life is good.  The way we choose to live our lives and interact with others can either be inspiring or the thread that unravels someones happiness.  When Alicia first joined the studio we knew there was something special about this young woman. More than just beautiful lines and graceful movement,  she sets a room at ease and shines a light that makes every one's heart smile.  She is humble in her talents and kind in her interactions.  Alicia never hesitates to gently encourage a fellow classmate, or cheer the new student on, or to just give a simple smile and with genuine sincerity ask how your day has been.  When you chat with her, she will tell you all about the people who inspire her, those she looks up to and admire, and the people in class that make her appreciate the art we create just a little more.  The best part about these casual conversations is she never realizes what an inspiration she is to everyone around her, she doesn't realize it, because it comes from the most natural and genuine place deep in her soul.  If you haven't had a chance to share coffee and conversation with this lady, or a spin on the pole, make time to meet her and we guarantee you will know exactly what we mean.

"Strive to pay your inspiration forward!"

Hi! My name is Alicia and I am a 26 year old fitness lover and aerial artist! I became a member at the little pink studio, Twisted Bodies, almost a year ago and it has been an amazing journey. I have something to look forward to each and every day as my passion for physical fitness has become one of the most fulfilling aspects of my life. When I first started at Twisted Bodies my goal was to just start feeling better physically. Even after the first couple of classes my goals and dreams evolved into something way more than just wanting improve the way I felt. It is so great to share movement and achieve goals with friends. That is another amazing part about the studio, you will not be able to be a member here without becoming a part of the Twisted Bodies family. These women are the most amazing, caring, and intelligent and inspiring individuals I have the honor of learning from and training with. I can honestly say these are best days of my life. So, thank you Twisted Bodies for giving me a home and helping my heart grow that much bigger. I love you guys so much!




Favorite Movie: Growing up my Mom and I would rent French Kiss with Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline whenever we needed a good laugh. This romantic comedy is definitely an all-time favorite.

Favorite Twisted Class:  I love my spin pole class with Tammie. She is always coming up with new combinations that challenge and further my practice each time!

Hidden Talent:  I can wiggle my ears.

What do you do when life gets stressful: When life gets stressful I take a deep breath and move! Whether it’s moving in the studio or on to the next task at work, moving and breathing gets me through!

Dream Vacation:  Since Corey I just got married it would be nice to go on a vacation with him just the two of us. We still haven’t done that yet since we’ve been together! I’m thinking a nice cabin in Colorado would do.

Historical figure you most identify with: I don’t identify as William Shakespeare, however, as both an artist and performer I admire his work and the influence he had on the English language and the world of theatre.

The one thing you can’t live without: My friends and family!

Twisted Client or trainer you are most inspired by and why: Katie Bomalick is a great inspiration to me! She is so dedicated to practicing the craft and her hard work and progress shows each and every day. Plus holy flexible! One day I hope to be just as bendy as her!

KATIE About me: I'm Katie and I'm 24. I've been a pole student at Twisted Bodies for about seven months and I work the front desk in the mornings and do whatever else might be needed around the studio! I love all styles of dance, baking, tattoos, the Denton Square, and most of all Twisted Bodies. You can usually find me drinking too much coffee at the front desk in the morning or and I always have extra dry hands if you need some in class! What was your first experience at Twisted Bodies? A level one pole class with Katie Deering. I originally came to Twisted Bodies with my heart set on becoming an Aerial Silks master, but I fell in love with pole and have stuck with it ever since! Have you always been involved in dance and fitness? I've always been involved in classical dance classes, but I really became interesting in the fitness aspect of it when I decided to become a Zumba instructor. When and how did you decide you wanted to work at

Should I try a pole class?

Should I try a pole class? YES! The answer is yes! I'm betting that you aren't really asking if you should, you're really just seeking affirmation. Because let's be honest, there's a bit of a stigma attached to this ever popular fitness class. What would people say if they knew you were dancing around a vertical piece of chrome plated steel in a pair of teeny tiny shorts? What would they say if they saw you lifting your own weight, climbing 13 feet, flipping and hanging upside down. What would they say about how radiant, strong and confident you are? Is what they might say more important than what you might feel? You see where I'm going with this? Pole dancing/fitness is what you make it. Just like finding the right yoga class/instructor you'll want to find a class that inspires you. Every instructor has their own unique style and way of teaching so try a few. Your first class will be clumsy, you'll feel awkward and you WILL be a hot mess. But,
