Introducing our first Green Bird Instructor Spotlight series! First up is Nina, the first instructor that I hired once the studio was up and running! I have known Nina for a few years now before she became a fitness instructor. The story goes like this: Green Bird Fitness started inside Premiere Dance Center (just across the street from the current studio location). It was just me and I taught 10 classes a week. Nina and I worked together at another studio and we would always chat between classes. I told her about starting Green Bird and she told me her dream of teaching Pilates. Nina would say, "Let me know when you need to hire instructors!" I would tell her, "I hope I get to the point where I need to hire instructors!"
Then a year went by and Green Bird grew into its very own studio space. It was still just me teaching classes. In February, I put out the very first call for hiring instructors and guess who was the very first applicant?! Nina, of course! And the rest is history.
It's been so exciting to see Nina grow as an instructor over the past 7 months. Nina's bubbly personality and smile is infectious. She charms everyone that comes through the door. She works you hard in Pilates class all with a huge smile and lots of giggles. A few weeks ago I sat down with Nina and we had a fun discussion about living in Laredo and what she loves about fitness.
