Pole Passion Bognor launches their new sister website -

This month saw the launch of Pole Passion's sister website 
Pole Passion - Bognor

Kay Penney, CEO, who created Pole Passion in 2003, is excited to see the expansion of her team and vision, which was set up to enable everyone to have the opportunity to practice movements on and around the pole.

Pole Passion Bognor & Pole Passion Littlehampton are headed by Sue Thompson who established her license area in 2011. 

Sue started as a Pole Passion student in 2009 at Pole Passion Redhill, and soon gathered enough confidence and skills to become an instructor and add her own skills and style to the Pole Passion community of instructors. She now has nearly 100 students who regularly attend her seven classes a week, over her five venues and two areas. To achieve this whilst also juggling her young family and other part time job, Sue is supported by her team of instructors, apprentices and assistants, Amy, Karla, Kelly, Arion and Julie. 

Over the last five years Sue has introduced a number of new, exciting classes to her students, including classes in Stretch and Flexibility, Contemporary Choreography, Exotic Choreography, Strength and Conditioning and Pilates for Pole. 

This new website is an exciting development that will put all the information about the Pole Passion Bognor and Littlehampton classes in one place, as well as giving the students access to a new integrated online booking system. Sue hopes that the new website will continue to educate people about the benefits of pole fitness and bring new students in, to try it out.

From Bella Monnery
1. How did you get into pole
I organised a party for my birthday…. I was looking for something a little different and fun!
It was so much fun, I started class’s the next week and fell in love with Pole Fitness.

2. Why pole and not the gym
I actually do both, and more.
Pole on it’s own is an amazing sport, that builds strength, flexibility, confidence and balance whilst learning a fun new skill.
I’ve belonged to the gym for a long time and still go 2 or 3 times a week.
I’ve been doing martial arts since 2001, specialising in Kick-boxing, training and instructing for many years now.
I have also trained in Boxing, K1, Chinese Boxing, MMA and Tae Kwondo. I enjoy running and challenging myself, and I have entered a few races now. My biggest being Tough Mudder last year.

Doing all this other training helped me progress quickly. I wanted to share this great sport and encourage others to take up Pole Fitness. So I took the foundation training in 2013, Advanced training in 2014 and began teaching and have never looked back!

3. What’s your favourite move
I have many, but I do enjoy the splits moves so Russian Splits is at the top!

4. Sexy or fitness or both?
Fitness, I love all the strength and flexibility moves.
Since joining the pole Passion team, my love of the sport has grown even more.

I Regularly help at the Miss Pole Dance UK competitions and love attending and teaching at Pole Passions week long,  Budapest Pole training Retreat every year.

Pole Passion Instructors are friendly, passionate, approachable and fully qualified to advanced teacher training standards and receive ongoing instructor training and support to keep class content fresh and safe.
Instructors are fully insured to teach pole fitness and first aid trained.
