Wake up and Workout.
My name is Ann Otero-Hager and I have worked in the health and fitness industry for over 42 years. From the very beginning, I have made exercise and good nutrition a priority in my life. In the early 1980s, my sisters and I formed a fitness business called Jazzworks that quickly became very popular and expanded to a nationwide business. As part of Jazzworks, I helped manage aerobics instructors across the United States, and I choreographed many of the routines that Jazzworks instructors used in their classes. In addition to assisting with the production of a live weekly aerobics TV show and teaching 12 – 14 aerobics classes per week in my private aerobics studio, I took part in hosting numerous fund-raising events for local non-profit organizations.
After our successful 10+ year run with Jazzworks, I wanted to continue working in the fitness industry. As a certified aerobics instructor through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFFA), I continued to teach step aerobics throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s at Defined Fitness in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Intel Corporation in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.
While pursuing my career in the fitness industry, I set some personal fitness aspirations. In 1987, I competed in the Reebok National Aerobic Competition. I would later also compete in the 1997 New Mexico Regional Miss Fitness America Pageant. Through these events, I learned the key to competition is hard work, discipline, and being accountable for following a good nutrition plan. In the early 1990s, I became an avid runner and have participated in 10 marathons including the prestigious Boston Marathon and the New York City Marathon. I recently designed and ran my 10th marathon "Running Fearless at 60" to raise awareness for mental illness and anxiety. I served on the race committee for the New Mexico Marathon from 1999-2008. In addition to running marathons, I have run several half marathons. I continue to run and truly enjoy the spiritual aspect of it!
In 2009 I led the Core Strength and Stability classes for the Albuquerque Galloway Walk/Run Program, as well as Get Your Sassy Back Wellness Program. I am a Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Behavior Change Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). My programming is designed around safe and effective movements, along with healthy meal planning, and accountability. In 2012 I opened You inspired! Fitness Studio and managed my fitness business for 2 years. In July of 2014 I opened a larger studio with a business partner, which she took over in April of 2015. During that time, I was certified as a SPIN and ZUMBA instructor.
My husband is very active in our church and has inspired me to share my passion for health with others through ministry. In 2013 I created Live inspired! Fitness Ministry, at First Baptist Church of Rio Rancho. Our goal is to inspire the community to make healthy lifestyle choices through God’s word, healthy eating, and regular exercise. We focus on strength training, balance, and core exercises for seniors and participants of all ages.
As a fitness consultant I am here to inspire you to ReFocus effectively on a healthier lifestyle and maintain it through your lifetime. What compels me toward achievement in both my professional and personal life is my love for the Lord Jesus Christ, and the desire He has placed in my heart to bring Him glory. He is the One who instilled in me the passion for personal fitness and the heart to inspire others!
I look forward to INSPIRING YOU!
