Meet the team

kristen, owner

In 2013 I moved away to Dallas with no family or friends. I was alone and needed a way to make new friends. Thankfully, I found a pole studio near me and the fire was ignited.

I found a new home with women and men that encouraged and supported me both in and outside of the studio. Not to mention I was getting a killer workout in! I've never been a gym person so this different type of workout was perfect for me. Pole challenged me physically and gave me an outlet to make friends, relieve stress and express through movement.

I started instructing pole classes in 2014 and found my true passion - empowering others through pole dance. In March 2018 I took my passion a step further and opened Shine Fitness Studio.

I believe that every person has a light within, you just have to let it SHINE.
