After being cast in a show over 3 years ago in which he was supposed to be a pole dancer, Mike decided to take a few classes and “learn a few tricks.” After 2 months of constant soreness and bruises, and finding out the pole dancing was cut from the show, Mike discovered that he was now a pole fitness loving guy. Mike then decided to set his sights high and aim for a flag pole dead lift into brass monkey. About 1 year later, Mike finally got the move. His favorite moves would be anything involving a shoulder mount or brass monkey. Mike attempts to encourage other gentlemen to take up pole fitness, but he’s content just trying to stay on the pole. Mike would like to thank all the awesome people at Ecole de Pole for their passion for pole and excellent teaching skills. Mike would also like to thank Dry Hands.
