    Gin Miller, world famous group fitness instructor who attended Georgia Southern in the mid-1970s, will be back on campus March 12 to lead a “Spring Break Bodies” workout designed to burn fat and tone muscles.
    “We’re incredibly fortunate to have someone Gin Miller’s caliber come to campus to lead an exercise class for us,” said America Minc, associate director for fitness and facilities for Campus Recreation and Intramurals. “She’s one of the top group fitness instructors in the world and to have her come to Georgia Southern is incredibly exciting.”
    The class will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Recreation Activity Center (RAC). Only RAC members or their guests are allowed to participate. Guest passes are $5 per day and they must be accompanied by a RAC member. RAC members may only bring two guests per day.
    Miller attended Georgia Southern for two years starting in the Fall of 1974 and was on the gymnastics team. She stayed at Georgia Southern for two years while she studied business.
    “She’s an incredible motivator,” Minc said.“Her innovative teaching and creative energy inspire you to push yourself even harder.”
    Miller has won numerous awards throughout her career, including the World Fitness Festival Innovation Award, being named as “one of the 25 fittest people in the world” by People Magazine in 1994 and being inducted into the National Fitness Hall of Fame in 2006.
    “Gin Miller is a fitness pioneer,” said Justin Bowman, group fitness intern for CRI. “She is one of the best and left an indelible mark on the fitness world. She is known nationally and internationally for her fitness and exercise videos. Her level and dedication to fitness is inspiring and encouraging.”
    She is considered one of the industry’s top professionals and has more than two decades of experience. She was the creative force behind the “step revolution” and is considered by many to be the creator of step training, which laid the foundation for step aerobics.
    Miller will also be back on campus again in June to lead a three-day training seminar for group fitness instructors. That event will be open to the public who want to take the class. A fee, which has yet to be determined, will be charged for the June class.
