As a pioneer in the early days of the pole fitness movement, which gained momentum mainly on YouTube, Karol gained popularity by sharing her training progress through her own videos as well as inspiring and encouraging others to find their own pole prowess. Karol’s pole dancing obsession began in 2006 when she purchased an X-Pole and began self teaching herself and helping others through videos on YouTube. She started competing in 2008 and currently holds the titles of Charlotte’s Poleapalooza 2008, USPDF East Coast Champ 2009, USPDF Miss Sexy 2010, and 3rd Place in USPDF 2012 Pro Championships.

Now as an official X-Pole sponsored athlete, Brand Director of the Pole Fit line by Bad Kitty, and Glitter Heels Pole Idol, Karol loves being able to travel around the world and connect with her fans, performing in some of the most amazing Pole showcases, and visiting countless studios teaching others to find confidence and strength through the art of pole dance.
