Jennifer A. Rivera often gets asked if she ever worked in a strip club.
That’s because she is the CEO and owner of Pole to Pole Fitness, LLC.
“I sometimes wish I could say, ‘Yes, I was a stripper,’ it makes better story, ” the 35-year-old Woodbridge, N.J. resident said with a laugh.
Instead Rivera, who is from the East Harlem section of Manhattan, first tried pole fitness in her 20s because she thought it would be a great workout.
Now, after seven years operating a Pole to Pole Fitness studio in Woodbridge, she opened a second studio in Tompkinsville in September.
