Akayla began pole fitness in 2015 and fell in love with it immediately. She was a cheerleader for 9 years and naturally gravitated towards pole after graduating high school. Akayla's cheerleading background has helped her achieve impressive pole strength and in 2017 Akayla completed the Elite Pole Teacher Training Program. She is currently a student at Rowan University where she studies Health and Exercise science and is working towards her personal training certification. She is also a group fitness instructor, helping others to accomplish their weight loss goals. When she's not working or studying she loves to train, eat, read and try new things. In the November of 2017 she participated in her first pole competition. It lit a fire in her and she is excited to keep performing for others in the future. She hopes to continue a lifetime of fitness and fun.
