Roz The Diva Mays, Plus Size Trainer and Pole Instructor
Mere words could not begin to describe Roz’s amazing performance; she has to be seen. The crowd went wild when she strutted over to the judges and threw a fistful of singles in their faces!

Your energy, great vibes, smile and loud ass mouth is what I needed to get out of my rut. For that I heart you and will always forever keep you in my circle. Thank you for being so fucking awesome!

NASM certified Roz "The Diva" Mays has dedicated many late nights at the gym to becoming a stronger and healthier athlete. Pole dancing is her sport of choice, followed by TRX, strength & conditioning and flexibility.  Among her finest contributions to the pole world has been creating Dangerous Curves: A Celebration of Plus Size Pole Dancers.  Her talents have lead to a SAG membership for professional stunt work in Law and Order: SVU, The Big C and That’s My Boy.  She loves to teach obnoxiously loud classes at Body & Pole and IncrediPOLE, and trains clients at Form Fitness & Complete Body, all in New York City.  She’s also the subject of Dangerous Curves, a documentary featured by the New York Times.  When she isn’t half naked and sweaty, Diva’s making pancakes with Beyonce.
