Meet Nadya Mishutina

Nadya crossed the finish line in October of 2020 during the pandemic. For those that don’t know, “Cross the Finish Line” is what people do when they take our online course. It is the final step to get their certificate. From her final submission we got to see her shine. She introduced herself with confidence and brought about this light and fun persona. She executed verbal cues the way we go over in the training and she showed great musicality. We are excited to have her in our instructor community. Here are some more fun tidbits about Nadya.

What You Love About Being a Chair One Fitness Instructor.

Providing dance opportunities to those who thought they cannot.


Learning Spanish, writing journals and calendars, quating my husband "schediling yourself to dead", long walks early morning.

Name a challenge you faced as an instructor and how you over came it.

1. Music system failed. Had to teach 15 mins of Zumba without music by constantly counting, laughing without reason, making up sounds until new system was brought in.

2. Didn't find a sub and had to teach a class on crutch 😄

Tell us a precious or funny moment you have experience while teaching.

Teaching my first Chair One Fitness class during not easy times of 2020. It was in retirement facility, LIVE, translated to members units. And one gentlemen who's receiving massage therapy from me for the past 4 years, came to the studio for in-person class to support me. No matter how many virtual attendees I had, pure joy and laughter of that 1 person welcomed me into Chair One Fitness world so warm!

Tell us two Fun Facts about you.

Saying "Thank you" to the green traffic lights when in a rush
