As well as teaching pole, aerial hoop, burlesque and commercial dance here at Bliss,  Amanda also teaches 5 indoor cycling, 1 kettlebells and 1 pilates class a week on top of a hours pole theatre training. Because of this Amanda needs a percise diet to ensure her body gets everything she needs. Amanda follows the Poletrition plan which is a nutrition programme designed for pole athletes.
It helps to lose body fat, increase flexibility and increase strength.
