Meet Shannon Fable

Fitness Business & Programming ConsultantACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor since 1997

She loves working as a group fitness instructor, and has come to learn that it’s so much bigger than just helping people lose weight or teaching a great class. In this video, she talks about Stella, a class participant whose transformation inspired Shannon to deepen her own commitment to motivating others as a group fitness instructor.

What do ACE Group Fitness Instructors love about the work they get to do every day?

Amber Long

Executive Director Student Wellness Center at University of Colorado DenverACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor since 2017

"I love helping people realize a little bit of their own true potential. The moment someone achieves something they once doubted they could do, that is so powerful. And often their confidence travels from the studio to other parts of life, which is very inspiring." 

Angel Chelik

Provider of Employee Wellness Programs for San Diego CompaniesACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor since 2006

“I love being an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor because I love having a job where I get to surround myself with people who want to be the best they can be. It's inspiring to see people change, and to see behaviors change. The saying, 'You fuel fire with fire' is applicable to my job. I provide the spark that generates the energy and intensity for the rest of the room to feed off of!"

Andrea Metcalf

"I love that each time I teach class, I get energized from the participants. Though they may not always be smiling and they may not always be sweating, they are always happy that they've done it. That energy is contagious—and to be part of that feels amazing!"
