- Credited with the invention of step training, and
creator of the Step Reebok program
- 1991 IDEA Instructor of the Year
- Star of ESPN's "Step Reebok" TV show
Gin, often credited with inventing step aerobics, has
a split personality as an instructor. Most who are
familiar with her know her from the "Step
Reebok" video series - a dead-serious talking head
peering from multiple TV screens that some even describe
as "robotic". However, "New Body
Workout" and the old "Step Reebok" TV
program (a compilation is available on video) show a very
different Gin who jokes around and even does little voice
impressions. But both personalities put an emphasis on
safe moves and good form, and Gin is especially adept at
cueing; she even uses hand signals like slapping her
thigh to indicate shifting to the other foot. Gin's
routines are pretty basic and simple, more athletic than
dancy, but she still tosses in her own just-for-fun moves
like "suave shoulders". If you're turned off by
the Orwellian look of Step Reebok and Power Step, you
might prefer "Aerostep", "New Body"
or "Step Reebok TV", all of which feature
brighter sets and a much less serious Gin.
Gin's cueing is better than anyone's! I remember the
first time I did one of her workouts -- I was *so*
impressed with her cueing. You could probably do her
workouts with the sound only; she's that good. She's also
fun. Very friendly and motivating.
I rather like Gin Miller's instruction. Her form is
very good, and her cueing and tips on form are quite
helpful. She has (in the video with the tribal band,
anyway) this really intense kind of no-nonsense look
about her, and I like that as a change from the usual
smiley happy thing, which of course is nice too. I have
heard complaints about her voice in older videos (high
pitched, and with an on/off accent), but I find her to be
Gin Miller is remarkably easy to follow. Like many have
commented, her cueing is fantastic!
Gin Miller's cuing is terrific.
I have two Gin Miller videos, and it's true...there
really are two Gins. She is definitely a split
personality. I like the Gin Miller on this video (Step
Reebok-The Video) the best. (The other one is fun but
confusing.) This Gin Miller is wonderful. I seem to work
better with the style of instructing in this video. Gin
works out with the cast. The instructing comes from a
television set on the side.
Gin is such a blast.This is just the second Reebok step
tape that I purchased. I have Step Reebok: The Video, and
her personality doesn't show through in this one. But in
the Best of Step Reebok TV she is a blast. Great cueing
and a load of fun.
Great personality and very knowledgeable.
Gin Miller is a good instructor. She gives ample cues and notifies you when you are going to change moves. Although, in this tape (Power Step) you don't really notice Gin and her excellent cueing. Gin is completely overshadowed by the set. Personally, I don't care for the industrial, futuristic setting. It's too dark and ominous!
I LOVE GIN MILLER! I have been doing her tapes for years!(I think I have most of them.) Yes, sometimes she is very serious and sometimes silly and fun. I love both sides of her. Some days I'm in the mood for funny and some days for silly. Her cueing is the best! I have gotten into GREAT shape with Gin just working in my home with my TV. I feel like I've been trained by the best!
My dream is to meet her some day and some day become an aerobics instructor myself.
