Fit1-instr-Aub-sept-2014-Ruby-Fidler-web-fb-kt_finalSeptember’s Instructor of the Month for Auburn Fit1 is Ruby Fidler.

Ruby began teaching Zumba at the Auburn Fit1 last month. She teaches on Thursday’s at 6:30 p.m. She discovered Zumba 5 years ago, and fell in love with it because it combines dancing and Latin music and it didn’t feel like exercising. She enjoyed it so much that she became certified and has been teaching since April, 2014.

Ruby has been married to her husband, Mark for 29 years. They have 3 children: Jordan (26), Michael (24), and Alexandra (20). Ruby and Mark retired from Hewlett Packard in Roseville 2 years ago. During the school year, Ruby is a volunteer tutor with Reading Partners in Sacramento and Kids First in Roseville. 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, San Francisco, North Carolina, and Seattle.
