Are You Struggling With Your True Grip Handsprings?

I talk to pole dancers every day who tell me that they just can't seem to nail their true grip handspring, no matter what the try. That's why I felt compelled to create this course!

This comprehensive course is designed to give you all of the tools that you need to nail your true grip handspring, all within a 4-week semester. Once enrolled, you'll receive access to a targeted warm up and my "staple" conditioning exercises, a targeted, true-grip-specific conditioning workout, a true grip technique workout and a pacing guide to help you train. All using my proven PoleStrong Method of Training!

This program is for you if you are...

  • Someone who has been working on true grip handsprings but just cannot seem to get up into the position.
  • Someone who is working on the top-down true grip Ayesha from butterfly or inverted D and need some extra help to hold the position.
  • Someone who wants to train hard towards nailing their handspring/Ayesha consistently.
  • Someone who is willing and able to train twice a week for about 30-45 minutes per session.

This program is NOT for you if you are...

  • Someone looking for a “quick fix” and expects to get this trick in one lesson.
  • Someone who jumps from program to program.
  • Someone who isn’t committed to pole conditioning.
  • Someone who tries to do “all of the things” and over trains as a result.

The PoleStrong Method Works!

Polers just like you are transforming their training and crushing their handspring goals! Training in the PoleStrong Method with Handsprings 101 will get you results in as little as 4 weeks.


“I really didn’t do much pole practice before. Fran helped me understand what parts of my body need to be moving. {She is} very good at breaking moves down to their strength components. I absolutely love training with Fran. She is like the Pole Whisperer!” ~Kathy W (Queensland Australia)

“My mind needs to understand what’s supposed to be working, as well as my body. I appreciate that {Fran} work{s} from that place. Working these muscles has clearly made a difference in my ability to FEEL things where I’m supposed to and has given me more confidence/trust in my ability to hold myself on the pole.” ~ Cara S (Charleston South Carolina)

“My pole practice was very unstructured before we started working together. I was trying multiple things in one session…not focusing on specific tricks. My Gemini and Scorpio were not clean and after {Fran} explained a bit more of the technical details I was able to invert and perform those tricks much easier. I am now practicing setting specific trick goals…and have integrated the conditioning {Fran} showed me in our sessions.” ~Elissa K (Germany)

“Fran’s workshops have helped me tremendously with my strength, mobility and form. I’ve been able to progress in my own [pole] practice so much with her and I am so grateful! She’s an incredible teacher and a wonderful human being. I love Fran!” ~Kristin B (New Jersey)

“[Fran’s] class offered great tips & exercises to prep for advanced moves. This is why I love her class, as she can teach beginner to advanced students in the same class without missing a beat.” ~Sarah K (New Jersey)

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is this program suitable for beginners? If you are brand new to pole and do not have a solid invert, this course may not be the best fit for you. The course is absolutely suitable for those who are just beginning their true grip handspring journey however!
  • How much time per week will this program take? The course comes with a pacing guide designed to help you optimally train your true grip handsprings. Suggested training times are 2X per week for 30-45 min.
  • Why does it cost so much more than a pole class? Investing in yourself is always scary, especially if you are unsure of the outcome! I've designed this course to be so much more than a class. It's an entire training program designed to ensure the success that you cannot get in one class. And if you compared the cost of training handsprings in a private lesson 2x/week for a month, it would be more than double the price you see here!
  • What happens once I enroll? You will receive an email prompting you to create a username and password for your account. You will use this to access your Handsprings 101: True Grip course in the PoleStrong Academy.
  • Do I need access to a pole? You will absolutely need access to a pole to complete the course!
  • How do I know if the course will work for me? Here’s the thing: no one can ever, EVER guarantee results, BUT what I can guarantee is that if you follow this program, do the workout given at least 2x/week, and focus on this training for at least 4 weeks, it will absolutely work for you. So much of what causes us to struggle is the desire to HAVE ALL THE THINGS RIGHT NOW. But believe it or not, that will actually set you back in your training. Stick with this program and your true grip handsprings will improve!
