The story behind Spin City….

Spin City was established by Kate Johnstone in 2007 in Bristol with the aim of getting more women into exercise. Gyms can often prove an intimidating environment, as can sports clubs – especially if you have been out of exercise for a while. Spin City wanted to create exercise classes for both women and men that provided great fitness benefits in a social, fun and friendly environment that was open to women of all ages, sizes, abilities and fitness levels. Pole fitness was the perfect answer!

Over the last 10 years, Spin City have expanded to become one of the largest specialist aerial fitness schools in the UK. With six venues and instructors all across the country, we aim to provide a fun and challenging approach to aerial fitness in a welcoming and professional environment.

Ruth Vass joined the Spin City team in 2011 after falling in love with the sport and wanting to spread this fantastic form of exercise to other people. Ruth is a fully qualified Sports Therapist and set up Ruth Mills Therapies in 2010. Now qualified to teach pole fitness to beginners, intermediates and advanced students, Ruth offers classes at Brimpton Village Hall in Brimpton.
