Instructor of the Month: Ruby Fidler

Ruby has been teaching Zumba at the Auburn Fit1 for three years. She teaches on Saturdays at 9:30 AM.

Ruby first discovered Zumba 9 years ago and fell in love with it because it combined dancing with Latin music, and it didn’t feel like exercising. Ruby enjoyed it so much that she became certified and has been teaching since April 2014. She is also certified in Zumba Gold and Strong by Zumba. Ruby stresses that you don’t need to be a “dancer” to enjoy Zumba and get an effective workout. Everyone can do it!

Ruby has been married to her husband, Mark for 32 years.  They have 3 children; Jordan (29) Michael (27), and Alexandra (23).  Ruby and Mark retired from Hewlett-Packard in Roseville in 2012.  During the school year, Ruby is a volunteer tutor with Excel in Roseville and volunteers year-round at Bayside Church in Granite Bay.  She and Mark keep busy with improvement projects around the house and yard, increased exercise, and travel to some of their favorite places like Napa, Yosemite, Hawaii, and Seattle.
