At Sass Fitness we strive for complete balance of mind, body, and spirit. Everyone part of the SASS family uses the studio as their home away from home. We believe in equality and no judgement. We focus on all aspects of fitness, from strength, cardio, stretching and artistic aerial arts.
Our studio strives to empower the traits of the phoenix, a bird born from fire at a moment of change. Many of our family members have experienced transformations of their own while finding their passion, motivation and higher sense of self through the classes at SASS. This is where your journey may begin or continue, but we welcome everyone.
Shanyn's Artistic Strength Studio is owned and operated by Shanyn Pollard. She began her journey as a pole fitness enthusiast following the birth of her second child and hasn't looked back since. For her it was simply a way to get back into shape without having to find the time to go to the gym. It quickly became a full time passion and within 18 months of training she was teaching pole fitness out of Zacada Circus School.
She went on to compete on the national stage in 2010 and brought home Best Pole Tricks and was awarded 1st Runner Up. In 2011 she returned to the stage and was awarded the Canadian Pole Fitness Champion, Best Pole Tricks, Best Entertainer and Best Costume which lead her to the World Pole Dance Sport & Fitness Championships where she represented Canada as a finalist.
SASS has been in business since 2010 and she couldn't be happier with the people she's met and all the opportunities she's had along the way, which has lead her to expand her health and fitness knowledge. She's currently studying Applied Nutrition with the goal of adding health coaching into the mix as well as her most recent certifications in SUP Yoga, SUP Surf Sculpt and Pound®. Watching students confidence grow has become the biggest inspiration to her and it's continued to fuel her passion for health and fitness.
