From the mountains and forests of the Pacific Northwest, Holly Fidanzo has always had a passion for movement. Ballroom dancing led to fitness, yet it was wanting a deeper connection with her son (a drummer) that drew her into POUND for the first time. Then, it was quite literally ‘Love at First Strike’ as she instantly witnessed the transformations in the lives of her POUND Posse.

Fierce confidence, uplifting empowerment, and a good dose of THERAPY are her goals to each and every class.
