VIDA Instructor Profile: Savannah Fox

sfoxWhy did you decide to become a Group fitness instructor?

Former soccer player Savannah Fox was at the University of South Carolina when she was pulled into a Group Fitness class by a teammate who thought it would be an easy way to stay fit while recovering from a knee injury. She was hooked. After seven years of teaching classes, the Atlanta native still loves the rush of teaching classes. Savannah found a home at VIDA a year and a half ago when she moved to DC.

What’s one thing you want all your first-time class participants to know?

People think you have to have been, or currently be, a dancer to do a barre class, but anyone can do it. Its a class which you really do have to put “Mind over Body” to sustain the repetition of the tiniest of leg lifts. With a strong mind set you will see a huge improvement in your flexibility, strength and posture only after a few classes!

When you’re not squeezing another plie out of your students, where can they find you?

Hopping on and off planes for my 9-5 job as a Field Organizer for Amnesty International to do everything from educate students across the country on human rights issues, conduct trainings in London or participate in delegations to Geneva. When she’s not working you can find her hiking the trails of Rock Creek Park or enjoying a beer with friends at one of DC’s breweries (a favorite past time held over from her time living in Germany).

How are your classes different from other instructors’?

Always be ready for a good time- whether thats working out to a mix of old school songs and new beats or sharing a laugh. Savannah really wants to get to know whose in her class beyond just your names. She loves learning where her participants are from, what they study, their favorite foods, etc. The more she knows about her participants, the better she can motivate her class!

Tell us something we don’t know about you (embarrassing moment, fun fact, favorite unhealthy food, childhood trait, etc.)!

Savannah grew up on the beach in Florida and still feels most at home in the ocean. She was always at the beach with her older brother from 6am to catch the first surf waves until 6pm paddling in with the sunset.
