I took a few pole dancing lessons two years ago and just thought this was the BEST class in the world!! What a way to bring fitness and fun together!!!

I immediately thought to myself-... man!!- I gotta teach this!!. I started to research online different instructional DVD's and found a few by Fawnia Mondey. After purchasing and viewing the videos I discovered that she not only had her own studio in Las Vegas and taught lessons, but also certified instructors. Having taught aerobics for years I absolutely felt this would be the next hottest fitness craze to follow Zumba!!

I flew out to Fawnia's studio in Vegas in Feb '09 for Certifications in levels 1-4 and again in Nov '09 for levels 5 and 6. Fawnia's studio has the" Hottest" set up and she is the nicest person to work with. All the moves are broken down and the "how to's" of the different moves and tricks made simple and easy to learn. All in all, I feel she is a true inspiration to the Pole Fitness industry and to the world for simply having invented the mere thought of this as being a sport!! I Love it!!

To my sista from anotha motha.......You are the BEST!!.......keep on spinning!! :-)

When I decided to open my own pole fitness studio, my first thought was to attend Fawnia's certification program to start my business off as a legitimate fitness facility. Her guidance on class structure and accommodating the needs of different women in classes has definitely helped me structure my own program. In addition to learning her class content, just having Fawnia as a mentor on running this type of business has been a huge asset to me. And her graceful and powerful moves she performs while teaching certainly inspires me to continue improving my own skills on the pole!

For year's I had dreamed of taking a pole dance class. The art, skill, and athleticism of the pole dancer had always intrigued and captivated me. When my husband and I planned an impromptu trip to Las Vegas, I thought, "What better place to realize my dream?" I went on-line and found Pole Dance classes taught by Fawnia Mondey Dietrich. Fawnia was very prompt in returning my e-mail with a date and times available for a private pole session during my stay. Well, what can I say? I was so impressed and enthralled with the class that I ordered a pole for my home from Fawnia the next week. I, then, contacted her about getting certified in Pole Dace Fitness, so that I could teach it in Wisconsin. Fawnia was incredible. A truly delightful, bubbly, talented instructor. A real pro. She tailored the class to match my fitness level and skills and sent me home with a course outline of what I had learned. I certified for levels 1-4.

That was 3 years ago and since then I have been back to Vegas to see Fawnia twice to certify for levels 5 and 6 in Pole Dance Fitness. Each trip has been truly amazing and has enhanced my skills and confidence as an instructor. * Fawnia is simply the best!

Fawnia teaches in an atmosphere that is positive, encouraging, non-competitive and fun. She s a beacon of light in the Pole Fitness Industry for good reason! I am extremely grateful to her for everything she has shared with me since I first became certified by her in Pole Instruction back in 2007. Her certification program is exceptional! She makes sure you understand each move and what muscles it is working, how to safely do the move and most importantly how to best TEACH the move! (She includes a complete teaching plan as well.) Fawnia is extremely generous continuing to be available to answer any questions that you might have after you've left her studio. This proves immensely helpful, because it's not until you get your studio up and running that a lot of those questions arise!

I would recommend her certification program to anybody who is considering teaching, or opening their own studio. It will show your students you truly care about being the best instructor you can be!

I hadn't been doing Pole Fitness for very long when I decided to open my own studio. I really wanted to learn from someone very experienced in the industry - to have that confidence and assurance that I was teaching the moves properly and in an easy to learn format. I did alot of research before choosing Pole Fitness Studio and Fawnia. I am so glad I did! I recieved what I consider to be the best training possible - in technique and how-to-teach. Fawnia was very patient, kind, and knowledgable. She shared many administrative tips and ideas with us too which have been life-savers as I now run my own very sucessful (very busy!) studio. I highly recommend Fawnia to anyone considering a certification program or just improving their teaching technique and personal skill level. I'm not sure why anyone would go anywhere else!

I tried a pole class on a whim, and I was hooked from the very first lesson!! Being from a small town in the middle of the desert studio choices were limited... Until I read about Pole Expo in Las Vegas, attended it and met Fawnia !! A whole new world of dance, art, and inspiration was opened to me !! After Expo I was spoiled for what our local studios had to offer . My husband built me a small home studio and I would occasionally venture to Pole Fitness Studio in Las Vegas to take a lesson there.  Oh what I am missing out on is all I could think!  Together with my husband I made the decision to open my own studio.  But I wanted to do it right! I wanted to be trained by the best and model my studio after the best ! So once I felt ready I signed up to test for levels 1-4 !  I met some amazing dancers and athletes and could not be happier with the whole experience.  I am deeply thankful to Fawnia not only for the pole skills but for business advice, encouragement, and her endless supply of positive energy!!

I was introduced to pole dancing at a friend's birthday and had no idea how fun and empowering it would be. Once I found out what a great core workout it was I was hooked. I have always taught gymnastics to young girls with the inspiration of being a positive role model to them and I am happy to say after receiving my certification from Fawnia I feel that I can now use the tools I've been given to help inspire women as well. I want them to feel sexy and important and motivate them back into getting in shape and taking care of their bodies and souls.

I would not be teaching the classes I do if it were not for Fawnia. She is very inspiring and focussed on what she is doing and to this day I still start off every beginner class the same way she started off with me...Fawnia moves are written all over my teaching style and I can't wait until I can get back out to visit her studio again.

I had the privilege of being a student of Fawnia's when I first moved to Las Vegas. My sister and I took our first class with her and I have to say outside of her being super sweet her music choice is fantastic. She is a amazing dancer, teacher, and person. Going through her certification was informative and very rewarding. I would recommend her certification program and classes in general to everyone interested in learning and teaching pole fitness. Must warn you though; be prepared for lots of laughs, fun, good company, and most important excellent poling!

I had been pole dancing for only one year & after seeing the transformation of my body & attitude, I knew I wanted to become a certified instructor & share the power of pole with others. After researching the various certification programs available, Fawnia's was an easy choice. It was an added bonus that the course followed the Last Vegas Pole Expo, which was also amazing. Fawnia proved to be an inspiration & invaluable resource for a future in the pole industry. The small class size gave us the opportunity to bond as a group & share in each others’ successes, questions & struggles. I left the week with not only 6 new colleagues, but 6 new friends from all over the world. Fawnia went above & beyond to make us feel welcome, recognized & important while delivering an exceptional instructional program. I left confident that I can deliver valuable classes to my students. I can't wait to return for Levels 5 & 6 next fall! Thank you Fawnia!

Thank you also for the documents because believe it or not I have my first student! I would start to teach privates and hopefully I would open my studio one day. Pole Fitness has changed my life in ways I've never thought it could. I'm more confident, stronger, and secured about myself as a woman and wife.

We ultimately enjoyed our time at the Pole Fitness Studio. We learned a lot of strong and sexy moves on and off the pole. Each teacher had their own style/unique way of teaching. This gave us ideas for our own studio. Every teacher was fun to be with.
The certification course with Fawnia was exciting and it empowered us through the day-by-day lessons. She was very approachable, patient and accommodating. She made sure we understood the moves and techniques well and didn't have any questions. 
Altogether, these were very memorable. We hope to share our learnings to our students and hopefully revisit the studio in the near future to earn higher level certifications, knowledge and experiences."
We'd like to thank you Fawnia for everything including a super awesome night out, for your generosity (the epsom salt, the dresses, the expensive dinner, the super cool ride, and the exotic experience). 
We miss you! Take care.

I have always been interested in teaching and helping other women feel better about themselves. I decided I wanted to open a polefitness studio, however I had no idea what to teach, how to teach the classes or how to get my business started. I found Fawnia's classes on-line and it looked like what I was looking for. After talking to her once on the phone I knew she was the person that could help me. She was open, freindly and willing to help in any way she could. During the classes I had difficulty doing some of the moves. She was patient and worked with me until I got it! She is great! Fawnia is a great instructor and motivator! I love the fact that even after completion of her certification course, Fawnia continues to keep in touch with her students and provides on going support!!! I only come to Las Vegas from Chicago to see Fawnia and take her courses! She is excellent!

I took Fawnia's certification for Beginner level 1 - 4 a few years ago in Las Vegas. The program was very good and I learned how to put together dance moves and pole spins for a smooth transition. I really liked that she informed me of which muscles were used for each move. It's really helped me with teaching classes now and I highly recommend the certifiation. Fawnia was easy to follow and explained spins and dance moves very well. She is so awesome on the pole and super sweet too.

I will definitely come back and continue practice! I love that your Instructor Certification is so clearly written and provides information about muscles trained and alternative approaches, additional tips, and important points to think about when teaching. The in-person training reinforces the certification booklet with additional insights, alternatives, and warnings or beginner tendencies to look for when teaching to limit injury and encourage success.

When I was a new instructor I had the opportunity to first meet Fawnia which was an experience that would influence my career as a pole dance instructor. Fawnia is personable and down to earth and instantly makes you feel comfortable working with her. Her instructional methods are thorough and easy to follow.

She shares her techniques and provides a solid base for anyone who is teaching pole dancing to build upon. Whether you are an experienced or a new instructor, her certification program will benefit not only your instruction, but your own dance style as well. She is attentive to the needs of her students and instructors who come to her for dance and instructor training and it doesn't end with certification as she remains dedicated to all of them, keeping in touch and providing ongoing support and feedback on an ongoing basis.

I highly recommend the PDIC program for anyone who is serious about creating a reputable pole dance program.

When I first got started in pole, I searched for instructional dvds and every one I found had Fawnia in it. The instruction was great and so when I began pursuing teaching, I knew I needed to go to the leader in the industry, the original pole teacher, and to the woman with the most reputable name, Fawnia. The instructor course was a great foundation to expand my skills as a teacher and business owner. Fawnia makes you feel comfortable and is very down to earth. Her knowledge and experience offers so much to those that are new to the industry, and she shared a lot of important business information too. The amount of information and ongoing support that is included in the course is well worth it. I am proud to be PDIC through such a reputable course and affiliated with Fawnia. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to become a successful and reputable pole dance instructor.

I have successfully completed The Basic Certification training levels 1-4 on August, 2011 with Fawnia Dietrich. During this three-day training, I was able to immerse myself with learning and perfecting my pole skills. A combination of Fawnia's training manual along with hands on the pole made this training fun and educational. Also, sharing the passion and knowledge with other like minded enthusiasts made my learning experience special and unique. Despite Fawnia's hectic schedule, she answered her phone and text messages promptly. Fawnia was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. She made me feel at home with her kindness and thoughtfulness. Fawnia does not hesitate to share her knowledge and skills with others. Fawnia's studio is located within walking distance from the chic Palms Place Condo Hotel and it is easily accessible by bus or taxi from the Strip. While, I was there I stayed across the street from her studio and I was able to walk there. Thus, making it very convenient for me to take as many classes as I wish. Fawnia's studio is kept very clean and her personnel are very helpful and professional. Training with Fawnia Dietrich and crew has been an honor and I cannot wait to be back for more training.

I met Fawnia through a corporate contact back in 2005 when I was the Regional Director for a pole dancing company based out of Canada. When that company went out of business, I wanted to continue being in business, but I really didn't know what direction to take. Fawnia was gracious in spending some time on the phone with me helping in my decision to move forward with becoming a Certified Instructor. That was the best investment I have made in myself and in my business! Fawnia is an outstanding, patient and fun instructor who gives 100% to her students. She is the perfect balance of femininity, grace and strength and I learned quickly that being a serious pole dancer is serious athletic work! In becoming certified in levels 1-4, she mapped out a class structure to help everyone get started in their teaching careers. I really could not have done it without her help. Now I have a growing business where I enable women of all ages and shapes bring out their inner Diva and live out their fantasy of exotic dancing! Thank you Fawnia! XOXOXOX

Starting out as a self-taught pole dancer, I stumbled upon the Oh My You're Gorgeous studio which ultimately led to the amazing opportunity to meet and train with Fawnia. The criteria is comprehensive and thorough, paying attention to every aspect and angle of pole fitness. She taught me to be the best so I can teach my students to do the same and feel good about what they are doing and their bodies. To me, self respect and self-esteem are top priority to convey to my new students. Fawnia offers great encouragement and her techniques make pole fitness fun for every body type at any age. Fawnia, thanks for the great skills you have taught me and thank you for giving me the ability to give back to the pole community in a safe and effective way!

My experience with Fawnia was life changing. I did booty camp and level 1-4. Training with her brought confidence and a wave of peace within myself knowing that I have truly found my niche in life, and that's to help women feel good about themselves and to help them take their lives back. Fawnia is so patient and kind she can teach a blind person to teach pole fitness, she's amazing. And most importantly the first characteristic I noticed about Fawnia was how HUMBLE she is. I will always be grateful for her help and ideas and I will continue to keep her in my corner because I aspire to be just as great if not greater than she. I love her!!!

I am certified in Levels 1-4 through Fawnia's teacher training program in pole fitness. It is essential for anyone that is opening a pole fitness facility/studio or teaching pole fitness classes to be trained under Fawnia's teacher training program. I was able to attend her training/certification program and walked out with a set of plans that allowed me to start teaching classes immediately. With the training and the teacher manual I was set and ready to open my studio immediately following the teacher training program. The routines for each Level are well planned with the appropriate pole tricks and floor work for each level. The teacher training manual that Fawnia wrote is the Pole Fitness Bible that I live by for teaching each level. The routines are written out step by step, explaining how to teach each pole/floor work move as well as a brief description of what muscles are worked and safety tips. The routines are broken down day by day as well allowing me to know exactly what to teach each day of class with each level. I had her instructional DVD's before I attended the training which helped me as well. I already knew most of the pole tricks and floor work so that when I attended I was able to focus on how she teaches each move and how it is all combined to make a perfect routine that is Level appropriate to each student's ability. The teacher training takes the worries out of it because it prepares you for what to teach and how to teach it with focus on safety and fitness/muscles worked.

Fawnia's teacher manual and one on one teacher training allowed me to open my pole fitness studio quickly and properly without any guess work. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in opening a studio or teaching pole fitness classes. It is well worth the investment!

Fawnia's Basic Pole Certification 1-4 gave me the skills and confidence to teach pole fitness. Fawnia not only does a great job of demonstrating and describing pole moves but explains what muscles are being worked and modifications needed to be taken in consideration. More importantly she teaches us as instructors how to make the class comfortable performing on pole and have fun while doing it. I would recommend this to any one that wants to teach or is currently teaching. I look forward to taking more advanced certification with Fawnia in the near future.

It was the missing link I needed to go from planning my business to running my business! Not only was the course invaluable for its solid foundation of pole dance class instruction, but I was able to have all my questions and concerns answered by someone who has been in the business for over 10 years and truely cares about her students success. She is now a mentor and role model. The time I spent with Fawnia was more than I could have ever expected, and the other women I met in class has given me a strong network of support and contacts from all over! I would not have the same amount of confidence and success with my business if I had never invested in this certification. I will be coming back for further certification from Fawnia in the future!

Getting certified in pole fitness with Fawnia was the best move I could have made. Fawnia is excellent to work with, her experience both performing and as an instructor means you will be extremely well educated in the field. Her course encompasses everything you will need whether you are already teaching, looking to open your own studio, or a first time instructor. Not to mention that her location in Vegas means you, and whoever decides to join you, will have an excellent time outside of the classroom.

She was so accurate with positioning, safety, and proper tips for adjusting. I loved her non judgmental attitude towards pole work, and how she is happy to share her sport with other pole professionals and enthusiasts. She has been a mentor to me in business, and has certainly been doing it for long enough to know what works and what does not. She is absolutely the best, Thank You Miss Fawnia, you gave me a leg up in life, and my career!

Her certification program was thorough, not only in pole technique but also body mechanics, and adjustments needed for various fitness levels. Fawnia doesn't just certify you and forget either. She makes herself available to all her students for any questions they have in the future in regards to both the physical and business side of pole fitness.

Since meeting Fawnia in 2005, I have thought of her as my mentor. Not having any dance or previously pole experience, I was very green when I first started working with her. Fawnia was able to modify moves, spins and transitions to work within my skill and fitness levels. As I continued my training, Fawnia was able to push me to new heights. Today, as a studio owner with a staff of eight women, I am able to take the knowledge and skills I've mastered and share them with thousands of other women who want to experience all that the pole has to offer. It is without hesitation that I would recommend the Pole Fitness Studio Certification Program and Fawnia Dietrich.

I have been pole dancing for the better part of the last decade and have accumulated a vast knowledge of pole tricks and moves but have lacked the skills to share my expertise with others. There's a big difference between being able to execute a move yourself and being able to show someone else how to do it, and do it safely.

I really appreciated how, in her instructor training course, Fawnia breaks down each move so it’s easy to communicate. It was fantastic to learn what moves were appropriate for various skill and fitness levels, and I valued the course's strong emphasis on safety.

I highly recommend Fawnia's instructor training to anyone wanting to become a pole dance instructor and current instructors wanting to improve their teaching skills. I will be returning for her Levels 5 and 6.

I discovered Pole Dancing about 15 years ago through a Canadian Cabaret Dancer I met in Spain. The instructor had those amazing graceful spins and I asked her to teach me. Unfortunately, lots of dancers back then could do great moves but not teach them. A lot of them would say Pole Dance would give you back pain and other health trouble. But none of them would either warm-up or stretch. Fawnia was one of the first who started to think in a sporty way about our art and to try to share it with others. Not only the way of preparing for the pole or to cool down after, but also to be pedagogue, to explain the figures in details and analyze them. That's why I flew all the way from Europe to take her classes.
I've been teaching Pole Dance before but working with Fawnia brought another Level and another deepness into my classes. Fawnia's certification is complete, clear and very professional. I'm looking forward to my next trip to Las Vegas and taking her Advanced Pole Dance Instructors Certification!

I've always wanted to pick up dancing since teenage years and one night after my pole class, I felt an urge to look up online for certification programs and Fawnia instantly caught my attention. I was intrigued after reading her profile so I decided to give her a call. Right from the start Fawnia’s been very understanding and helpful; her prompt replies and expertise in the industry really put my mind at peace. After months of hesitation, I decided to fly all the way from Hong Kong. The 16-hour flight and jet lag were well worth it!! Fawnia made sure she was accessible for me to find my way round in Vegas. Fawnia knows her work inside out and her unique way of teaching made learning a lot of fun! Each move was well explained for easy teaching. I also had the opportunity to meet a group of wonderful instructors; so now I have a supportive network of like-minded polers who share the same passion! Best of all during my time in Vegas, I rediscovered my sensuous self and the Vegas Night Out with Fawnia was absolutely phenomenal!!

I have been pole dancing for a number of years as well as teaching my fellow exotic dancers here and there. When it came time for me to make the leap and make it official by getting my instructor certification I did a TON of research and asked around. It's a good chunk of change to spend and it's such a relatively new fitness sport that anyone can offer a certification without necessarily having the correct knowledge to do so. I was happy I went with Fawnia's PDIC Basic level 1-4. I felt that she had plenty of experience teaching beginners and she had no problem breaking down each move to the smallest detail. I also appreciated how meticulously she made us go through everything on both sides of our bodies, which I have never been disciplined about in my personal practice. She also taught a great series of strength training for beginners as well as fabulous transitioning floor moves. I now feel confident to teach beginning pole dancing to anyone, especially individuals that are out of shape. Fawnia has an infectious positive attitude which inspired me greatly. I didn't expect to find such a nurturing mentor, which was the best surprise of the trip. What a fun trip it was - Fawnia treated us to a night out in Las Vegas pulling out all the stops. Truly Epic! Been back home for a week and I am already helping ladies get in shape while having fun! Thank you again and I will see you soon!

Fawnia's certification program for level 1-3 was an amazing experience. I began pole dancing in 2011 and soon found it to be fun as well as challenging. Fawnia made it easy to understand the moves & ways to break them down to your students as well as variations. She was so helpful with explaining the importance of working each muscle group and the safety in each move. I now have the confidence and credentials to teach others, share my love and passion for pole, and to always have fun while doing it.

I started recreational pole dancing about six years ago, armed with a closet rod and Fawnia's original instructional VHS tape. Years later, I had the opportunity, through pole dance instruction, to share my passion with others and secure a bit of economic freedom for myself. I wanted credibility for my business and I knew that a certification from Fawnia, the pole fitness pioneer, would be immediately recognized and respected in the developing industry.

Fawnia's teaching style is positive and engaging. Her classes are upbeat and unintimidating, regardless of the experience level of her students. She fosters an open dialogue, eliciting questions and insight and encouraging us to personalize the experience for what will best serve our respective clientele. She is dedicated to helping her students succeed in their entrepreneurial adventures, and even provided private instruction to accommodate my very tight schedule.

As the availability of certifications grows with the industry, Fawnia's courses should still be considered the gold-standard in pole dance instruction. Her grace and fluidity retain the sensual connection to the dance, and her attention to fitness and safety advance the evolution from pole dancing to pole fitness. Her expertise in both arenas provides instructors with unmatched balance and professionalism in their business undertakings.

It was Fawnia. If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. That's how I new she had dedication and passion. She has always answered my questions via text or email immediately. When I asked her how she dealt with so many people so quickly and nicely, she said, 'one at a time and I like people'. I admire how her for creating her life as she has. She's awesome!"

Fawnia's certification program offers the complete package; great instruction, tips for breaking the moves down and providing modifications, and an infectious spirit! I learned how to provide a safe environment in class, quickly assess my students' skill and enthusiasm level, how to develop music choices/playlists, and how to interact in a fun yet professional manner with students. I had a great experience and made fun memories with other new instructors!

I attended Fawnia's certification course in April and I was amazed at the wealth of knowledge she shared with us. Fawnia was very professional and inspiring. Her positive attitude and loving spirit kept the certification course challenging yet fun. I will begin teaching courses on my own this summer and I will use plenty of the information I gathered from Fawnia. If you are ever in Vegas, be sure to visit Fawnia and give the pole a spin!!!

I am beyond proud and excited to have completed my level 2-4 certification with Fawnia at the Pole Fitness Studio! I was a self taught instructor and a dancer first; having Fawnia solidify everything I had been working on made me feel much more confident and secure! I loved the focus on safety and execution. Fawnia was also was very aware of our bodies and educated us on the efficiency of movement and the longevity of our pole dancing careers. I love how honest and open she was with us during our time together. She was willing to answer and share any information she had on how to make our careers successful. I cannot wait to complete my level 5-7 and train as often as possible under her guidance!

I have had the pleasure from learning from the best! During my certification process Fawnia took the time to break down every move in easy to teach steps including warm up and cool down the different muscles and the importance. She answered all questions and was very thorough. Fawnia also made sure everyone had sufficient amount of learning time. As well as answering any questions I had after the certification. It was such a fun time I would recommend anyone wanting to become a certified pole fitness instructor to do it at Pole Fitness Studio with Fawnia!

Ever since I received my certification from Fawnia I can say ALL my dreams are coming true!!! I began my pole dancing about six years ago and I knew immediately that poling was my calling. Once my experiences with the pole became my talent on the pole I wanted to take poling to the next level, I wanted the pole to work for me. I wasn't sure of my ability to teach just yet so I began to play with the idea of teaching in my home with the help of my X-pole. Sure enough the word began to spread and the number of students I had began to grow. However, I wanted more structure for my classes and I wanted to be sure I was giving my students all that they needed from their pole class. That is when I contacted Fawnia and she informed of the dates for certification classes that I could attend. Unfortunately life happens and once it came close to the time to sign up I was struggling financially and had a lot going on. I was at a crossroads and my options were few. I went with my heart and took out a loan and it was the best decision I have made in a long time. Now I am teaching at Fawnia's amazing Pole Fitness Studio here in Las Vegas and loving every minute of it! The certification itself was such an amazing experience, being able to meet all those women who shared interests similar to mine and watching all of us move closer to our dreams, it was truly inspiring! And not to sound cliche, but now I am financially stable and I am doing the things that I have wanted to do, I am getting closer to living the life that I wanted to live and it is thanks to the help of Fawnia and the Pole Dance Instructors Certification:)

Before opening my Salt Lake City Studio, I certified in my Level 1-4 certification with Fawnia. So very glad I did! One reason being that put legitimacy to my craft, as well as improved my method of teaching incredibly! Fawnia is clear, concise, and knows the body. She was so accurate with positioning, safety, and proper tips for adjusting. I loved her non judgmental attitude towards pole work, and how she is happy to share her sport with other pole professionals and enthusiasts. She has been a mentor to me in business, and has certainly been doing it for long enough to know what works and what does not. She is absolutely the best, Thank You Miss Fawnia, you gave me a leg up in life, and my career!
