We pick up our squad in various places at different times in our lives. From home, college, work or a random conversation at a coffee shop that turned into a shopping trip. The one constant? If you're all lifelong friends or some are new acquaintances, things are going to get WILD when you get together. Summer is peak season for road trips and what better trip than the one planned with your best girls? This Summer's hot film, Girls Trip starring Regina Hall, Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah follows a group of best friends on their trip to New Orleans for a festival. We think Nashville would've been a better choice, but what do we know? We just see groups of ladies EVERY WEEKEND having the time of their lives....
We were inspired by the upcoming movie Girls Trip to create our very own list of flicks essential to getting you pumped up for a girls' weekend, week, month or just a day on the town!
July's student of the month has been with Miss Fit Academy for almost two years! Allison Griffey is a lover of all things aerial from hoop to fabrics and even dabbling in pole fitness. She came to Miss Fit Academy after attending our Summer Showcase back in 2015. She was inspired to take flight, and since then she has soared! "My favorite apparatus is hoop, but I really do love them all and encourage cross-training," Griffey said. She finds her inner cirque performer by blasting "weird, sad, slow songs," but breaks out the diva and superstar we love to see when Rihanna comes on and there's a pole in sight. We talked with her about her experience at MFA and wanted to pick her brain for her most honest and insightful thoughts.
After the weekend ends and the champagne campaign is over for a few days, we are left with the aftermath: more empty bubbly bottles than we know what to do with. Like us, you may be having your share of festivities this Summer from holiday bashes to pool parties. Rather than trashing all that glass or worrying about hauling your loot to recycling, put your crafting skills to the test! Home decor and holiday adornments can be easily crafted out of leftover champagne or wine bottles. Here are some of our favorites:

Accountability is so easily found at Miss Fit Academy. You'll be in a studio and in classes with staff, instructors and other students who don't just look at you as another face, but a friend. Every week and every class you'll have people surrounding you who expect to not only see you, but encourage you as you give 120 % to your lesson. That sense of community is what will keep you coming back and not just sitting in the dark for your nightly Netflix binge.
Some people are loners when it comes to fitness and we totally understand that! However, is it really more fun to stand under a squat rack alone? We don't think so! The special brand of flirty, group fitness that Miss Fit Academy offers will keep you and your muscles guessing from class to class. You'll always be learning something new and different and totally stand out from the crowd. Better yet, you'll be learning alongside other students just like you! You'll be there to encourage and push each other, and then maybe hit Chipotle together afterward to reflect on what you just learned, because let's face it: You guys earned it.
The staff, instructors and other students in our studio believe in the power of support and empowerment. It's so very important to lift each other up, hold each other accountable and motivate each other to be better every day. Self administered pep talks are a great way to start your day, but they won't necessarily help you keep your head up when times are tough. That's why you have us!

If you're looking to book an event or join us in class at Miss Fit Academy, you may have already perused our website to find out what we have to offer. You may have even given us a call and had a chat with one of our lovely front desk ladies to get some more information and ask your valuable questions! What better way to tell you all about what Miss Fit Academy has to offer than by sharing just a few of our glowing reviews! Bachelorettes, birthday girls and those beginning their fitness journeys all love Miss Fit Academy, and they can guarantee you that you will too!
I definitely recommend going to Miss Fit Academy! We went for a bachelorette party and it was the highlight of the trip. The experience was unique and every girl had a blast. Our party included the pole dancing and booty pop/floor play. Both instructors were amazing to work with and really made the group feel comfortable and relaxed. Overall the experience was fantastic.
This was by far my group's favorite part of my sister's bachelorette party. We had an exotic chair dancing class with Nadia, and it was so fun! Aside from the actual class (which again was amazing), afterward we were served mimosas. The staff is incredibly kind and so helpful with giving us advice for other activities. Overall, I would highly recommend this to everyone looking for the perfect start to a bachelorette party weekend. Thanks again for such an amazing time!!

Love, love, looooove taking classes here! Highlight of my week and gets in touch with your sexy, confident side. ♥ The. Best.
We had SO MUCH fun, it was a great experience. Super clean, wonderful staff, you must go!!
My cousin decided to book a group class with a few girls for her 25th Birthday. We had a blast! The instructor was very friendly, the music was great, we had a great workout doing this. Will definitely recommend to others and eventually go back.
I booked a Coyote dance class as part of my sister's Bachelorette Party weekend. We had a HUGE group and I only heard positive feedback from all the girls! They LOVED the class! Our instructor, Bridgett (BB) was amazing! She was so energetic and just added to the experience! We rocked our routine throughout 2nd Ave and Lower Broadway all weekend!

Just came back from my bachelorette party in Nasvhille and we had a blast at Miss Fit. We have the most uncoordinated group ever and they somehow made us look like we could dance. Our instructor for Coyote dance lessons was very fun.
Did a chair dance class for a bachelorette party and it was an absolute blast! The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our instructor explained things very well and made it fun! I would definitely recommend Miss Fit Academy for something away from the norm for a bachelorette party, but also just for the classes! I've taken advantage of their new student special and enjoyed the pole class as well as the chair class. Very empowering!
Just upgraded from a minor to a major because I love this place so much. Front desk staff are nice and extremely helpful. They always have a smile on their faces.As for the classes, I've mostly taken Aerial Hoop with a couple other classes thrown in at this point. Kasey is a fantastic instructor. My favorite so far, but Grace is a close second. They don't move too fast and everyone is extremely encouraging. No one ever makes you do something you're not ready to do yet. There's no judgement If you can't get a move right the first time. It's a great learning atmosphere. I'm excited to add more classes to my schedule with the major. When I look at Aerial studios in the area, Miss Fit had everyone beat on pricing. It's extremely reasonable, making it feasible to continue taking lessons. In conclusion, I would advise this place to anyone and everyone. I love it!

We're starting a little something new here on the Miss Fit Academy Blackboard! Our students tell us all the time how much they love Miss Fit Academy, and it's time that they know how much we appreciate them in return. Every month we'll be bringing you a behind the scenes look at one of our fabulous students. We'll ask them the questions we know you're wanting the answers to and get some advice for our Freshman students from the Upperclassmen. This month, we have sweet, sassy, sexy Brennen or, as the stage knows her: Kalamity Jane
What is some advice you could offer to newcomers and potential new students?
"Don't be afraid! If it's something that scares you, that's when you need to do it! The feeling of accomplishment you will have once you figure out it wasn't so bad after all is so rewarding. "
You read it here, and we couldn't have said it better ourselves! Everyone starts from somewhere and blossoms into a beautiful butterfly (and then an extended butterfly.... #polehumor). Start your journey to a more fit, flirty and confident you at Miss Fit Academy today!

If you haven't had the chance to join us at Miss Fit Academy when our beloved mascot Toots is in the building, you may not know that the ladies of MFA are die-hard animal lovers. We're almost as passionate about aerial fitness as we are about taking care of our furry friends. While preparing this week's blog, we've found that the pets of the fitness world like to have their spotlight too! From pole to aerial to working on flexibility & balance, these pets have mastered it all! Check out some of our favorite videos of fur babies totally video bombing their humans:
