TEAM ELLIE - UKAAP 2ND PLACE : ELLIE NELSON
The biggest proudest WELL DOWN and congratulations to Ellie, who started her pole journey just 2 years ago at AJFitness. With a big smile and positive vibes, Ellie has always worked super hard and been up for a challenge. With her biggest pole challenge yet, her first ever pole comp!! Last Sunday saw Ellie compete at UKAAPs higher intermediate level, which, to get through to the final alone, was a massive achievement. Ellie performed a beautiful and moving piece and not only that, SHE ONLY WENT AND PLACED SECOND!!
We are all so incredibly proud of you! Really well done Ellie!! You absolutely nailed it!
Want to see Ellie's performance - she'll be re-living it all again at the end of the month for our 2023 Student Showcase!

AJ Kids & Teens
Following the arrival of baby AJ, it’s taken a little bit longer than planned to get our kids timetable back up and running, however I can confirm both Kids & Teen classes will be making a come back on Sunday afternoons as of 5th November! For details on this please drop us an email and you’ll be included in our Kids & Teens comms going out later this week!
With November drawing closer it's the perfect time to add and review, for a new, improved, winter timetable. Here is what we are thinking...
· Additional daytime classes
· Additional beginner pole classes
· Additional beginner hoop classes
· Weekend heels, flow & combos
· Invite only advanced class
· Monthly choreo
· Kids aerial
· Teens aerial
Got any ideas / suggestions or feedback? Let us know, do also keep an eye on our stories to give you input on timetable specific questions.
At AJF we pride ourselves on being a fun, friendly and supportive environment for our teachers to teach and students to train. We are lucky to have an amazing, super talented and ever growing team – if you haven’t yet met our newest (albeit some not so new anymore!) instructors – be sure to check out our socials for our “meet the team” introductions!
Have you been thinking you’d like to teach? At AJs we are always open to honest conversations and support, for our students looking to transition over to instructors. If you think this is a path you are interested in, and you are an experience AJs member, do let us know!
Here's to another exciting few months!
