About us

Pole and Aerial Fitness is a society dedicated to providing opportunities to individuals from any level of athletic background to have fun, get strong and gain confidence.

Our main goal is to offer a safe space to get fit in an exciting way that is not limited to your shape, size, fitness level or skill level. We offer a fun, judgement free environment where everyone is welcome and are actively encouraged to grow and take part.

We are partnered with the wonderful GemsTone Fitness Studio based in Egham. They offer classes for both pole and aerial, with amazing instructors to teach members varying levels of experience.

This is a brilliant opportunity for anyone wishing to get fit, improve their confidence and a great way to meet like-minded people! - especially for Fresher’s who may not know anyone starting at uni. We would love for you to join our family.


We have a standard membership that will allow you access to the exclusive 'members-only' pole and aerial classes at GemsTone Fitness. Your membership benefits you by providing our members with discounted pole and aerial classes which are dedicated to Pole and Aerial Fitness Society members.

Being a member of our society guarantees your invite to all of our socials, performance opportunities, fundraising events and showcases. Furthermore, being a member will give you the opportunity to take part in inter-university competitions such as Varsity, IUAHC and IUPDC, and represent Royal Holloway. As a member, you will receive our society newsletters, exclusive opportunities and become a part of a gravity-defying family.

*At the moment our standard membership is unavailable due to the current COVID-19 situation. However, we are offering an online community membership that will grant free access to our socials, masterclasses and more!

Events and Activities

Over the year we will host various events such as:

  • Fundraisers
  • Winter and Summer Showcases
  • Inter-University Competitions for Pole and Aerial
  • Performances at the Student’s Union
  • Regular socials including SU nights, picnics, dress a fresher, end of term meals and a big end of year celebration!

There may be restrictions placed on some of these events in light of the current COVID-19 situation which is constantly changing. However, we have been working hard to find alternative ways socials can happen which includes regular meetings on Founder’s field for a socially distanced meet-up and ice breaking games. We are also planning on creating a ‘buddy system’ where new members to the society will be paired with a returning member as a point of contact so you can make friends and going to classes and socials does not seem as intimidating.
