For the latest installation of our #FitnessFlow video series, VIBE Vixen hit the streets—and subways—with the infamous Nicole “The Pole” Williams, where the petite pole pro gave NYC commuters a little PDA (Pole Dance Appreciation) on the MTA. The 34-year-old personal trainer and dance studio owner, who not only stars in Rih Rih’s “Pour It Up” video, but taught the superstar how to move like a master, discusses how she started spinning for a living and gives advice to vault virgins interested in making their first climb.
“Take your time to learn the sport,” she says. “It’s not as easy as it looks but it is easy to learn it, you just have to stay dedicated and consistent in your practice like with anything in life.”
