“Remember, When You Don’t Think You can Do Something, You Have 9 More Something’s Left”
If you have ever been in a health club, you have seen a step. And if you have ever been in a step class or a sculpt class you have exercised on a step. And if Gin Miller had not gone to Reebok for the 7th time, there would never have been Step.
In this episode, Gin and I discuss the backstory and journey that it took to develop Step Reebok. Learn how Gin had to persevere while burning a hole in her bank account, and what kept her going before her “overnight success.”
By happenstance, I was at the first ever Step Reebok workshop in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and in an instant I knew I was witnessing something special. Gin shares how she went from housewife to a household name and how she stayed grounded during her meteoric rise.
Gin shares some of her highlight moments including the day she signed her first contract with Reebok and whether or not you have ever taken a step class, you will love hearing Gin’s laugh again and peeking behind the scenes of step aerobics.
In this show, I talk with Gin my memory of talking with her for the first time at the Reebok headquarters, and I share the best piece of advice she gave me in my career.
Gin discusses the importance of being a part of a tribe and in a community, especially for women. She talks about how we can share kindness and spread compassion outside of the gym, and she discusses her new passion – the pursuit of happiness.
