Microbiologist by Day, Pole Queen by Night! Die Baroness tells us all about how dedication and hard work pays off!
By Die Baroness aka Jenny Schmiedel
Hey, so my name is Jenny Schmiedel and I work as a microbiologist during the day and I run a pole fitness school at night. I always had a keen interest in science but I had so many other interests that I wanted to pursue. One of these interests I got into at the age of 22…this was pole fitness.
I had always seen women and men showing their physical strength and beauty and found it so inspiring. It started out as a hobby but I soon fell in love with it and decided to pursue it as a career. Last year I was given the opportunity from my personal trainer to open my own studio up in Cork, Ireland.
Running my own studio
Without hesitation I accepted the offer and I have been running my own pole fitness studio since December 2017. I absolutely love every second of teaching! You can find us on Facebook at EM Fitness & Nutrition Pole Classes. Opening my own studio was anything but easy and I learned more lessons along the way.
Passing on the love
I love to pass on what pole has done for me over the years,
- confidence in yourself and your body
- being unique
- loving yourself for who you are!
One of my biggest inspirations has always been Miss Foxy P Cox, that woman is so hard working and amazing and she taught me so much both on and off the pole. Of course, I can’t forget all the other amazing women and men out there who inspire me every day to get up on that pole and try new moves.
My parents have always been so supportive of my goals and I am so grateful to have such amazing parents and supporting family! I am still working as a microbiologist during the day and my colleagues are very interested and supporting in my careers and hobbies outside of my day job which is great! They always ask about my competitions, how classes are going and how my own training is! It’s amazing to get so much support all around!
I started to compete last year and won in my category for Pole Princess and I came second in the All Ireland Pole Championships in my category. I also had the amazing pleasure of competing in the World Pole Championships in China in May of this year.
Miss Pinup Ireland
I can’t forget my amazing experience with Miss Pinup Ireland where I was place Runner Up last year and I’m really looking forward to judging this year’s competition. The Finals are held at the Dublin International Tattoo Convention on Saturday 18th August. To find out more, click here.
Hard work and dedication pays off
All of my hobbies have turned into such huge parts of my life and I am so happy to have each and every one of them. I hope to inspire people to go after their own dreams and make them a reality like I have done to my dreams! Lots of hard work and dedication pays off!
