Michula Renee Nunez

Michula discovered pole dancing 12 years ago and soon began instructing it in the evenings in 2002. With the trained and natural ability of a teacher, she was able to break down and teach the most difficult elements to her clients. For six years, Michula continued to teach science during the day and instruct pole dancing, Pilates, and Spin in the evenings. Yet she soon realized that she preferred teaching pole dancing due to its creativity and its potential to be recognized as a legitimate sport/art. It was then that Antix Fitness Studio was born in July 2006 with her studio opening soon thereafter.


Antix Fitness Studio opened in February of 2007. Michula, as a master-instructor, sets the bar and maintains the highest of standards in pole dancing for fitness/art. Antix Fitness is a world-renown pole dance studio with an international-based following. At Antix, pole dancing classes are student-centered. From step-by-step instruction to a more hands-off approach, each level offers students unique opportunities to gain increasing skill, confidence, and competency as a dancer. Antix offers expert instruction for all levels – beginners to competitive/professional, workshops, pole conditioning and now offers a basic and advanced certification course for instructors.

Michula in so doing has also set the bar for showcasing pole dancing in its proper light – as an athletic art. Her clients monthly showcase their talent at The Underground in Redlands, Ca which helps to raise the awareness that pole dancing is indeed an art and sport.
