Dakota Fox

Aradia USA

A tomboy by nature, Dakota began her pole fitness journey in 2008 after her mother convinced her to give it a try. After her first flip upside down… she was hooked! Dakota began teaching classes in 2009; in 2013 she bought ownership of Aradia Fitness Cary; and in 2014 she became the head of Aradia Fitness USA.

Dakota is passionate about wellness & empowerment; she found that the pole dance & fitness communities provided her a way in which to inspire persons in a personal, positive way. She takes great joy in having a small role in the physical & emotional transformation her clients experience during their journey at Aradia Fitness!

Outside of the studio, Dakota owns a succulent & houseplant business (Foxxy’s Floras) and is a new mother. Sharing her postpartum journey has been a special new way to connect with her Aradia family.

Tracy Reese

Aradia International

Tracy founded Aradia Fitness in 2003 after struggling to find a form of fitness that would keep her engaged while being effective. Before blazing a trail in the boutique fitness sphere, Tracy was a bank manager in Vancouver looking to utilize both her business & fitness skills and pole fitness allowed her to do just that. Tracy is passionate about building a safe, supportive community for all which is the cornerstone upon which Aradia was built. Tracy began franchising Aradia Fitness in 2005 and soon had locations throughout Canada and the USA. Tracy currently heads up Aradia international operations and is a post-secondary education marketing instructor. Not one to sit back, Tracy recently obtained her Chartered Marketer designation through the Canadian Marketing Association and launched a marketing agency, Royal Creative with her husband, Rob Reese. Tracy currently resides in Fredericton, New Brunswick Canada with her husband Rob and son Mason. Tracy is looking forward to celebrating Aradia’s 20th anniversary in November 2023.
