Heidi Coker

Heidi is a leader in what it means to embody authenticity,positivity and creativity. By standing confidently in her own truth and uniqueness Heidi empowers others to do the same. 

Born in Green Bay, Wisconsin to a father who was a national swim and dive champion coach and a mother who was a fitness instructor and coach, Heidi was no stranger to growing up in an athletic environment. Her mom had a softer approach to fitness and fostered Heidi’s love of creative movement, exploration and fun at home. This then lead to her introduction into a more disciplined sport of gymnastics from the age of 3 – 21. 

Heidi found that within the gymnastics environment, everyone and everything was too rigid, leaving her fighting against the norm by changing her routines and not sticking to what was given. Most of the time Heidi moulded her routines into herown creative flair and even ended up choreographing for herpeers and eventually her own students.

After watching an episode of Oprah where Shelia Kelly, founder of S Factor, introduced the world to mainstream pole dancing, Heidi began her own journey in pole and after one class she knew this was for her.


Heidi believes in being connected to and harnessing inner strength, creativity and uniqueness. It is through exploration that we ignite the courage to embrace who we are!

Heidi is well known for taking powerful moves, adaptingthem to pole and making them possible. Nothing is impossible to Heidi, its about breaking down the technique and coming up with a format to teach and perform a technically sound move.

Her mission is to empower people to embrace their vulnerability, live with courage, an open heart and to be curious about their potential both on and off the pole.
