Jazzercise or Zumba

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

I've been hearing a lot of buzz about these two fun work out classes. So which is the best and give the most results?

  Hello , i know this is a really y old post but i just found it. I am a currently doing jazzercise and have been for 4 years. I have done 1 zumba class, zumba is a great work out for the core and legs because your using them. Jazzercise i would have to say is the better one. It is a great core workout as well but it also works every other area of your body. Burn up to 600 calories in one fun and powerfully effective 60-minute total body workout. Every Jazzercise group fitness class combines dance-based cardio with strength training and stretching to sculpt, tone and lengthen muscles for maximum fat burn.

Choreographed to today's hottest music, Jazzercise is a fusion of jazz dance, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing.
You have great equipment to use there also like free weights , tubes/bands, and exercise balls. If your goal is simply to move more and get your cardio on, either class will work. If you’re wanting to address the main components of fitness (cardio, strength, and flexibility), then do three to four Jazzercise classes per week.

    Ive done both and would say jazzercise is a million times better since you danceand use weights and bands and the stabilty ball. You work your whole body. By the third time i went i could see major changes in my figure and so could everyone else. Jazzercise is more intense than zumba.

    Zumba is great! No one cares how you look. Modify it as you go along to your level and just have fun! I look forward to zumba classes thru out the week. You burn calories and something fun ... why wouldnt someone like it. Even those without rhythm try and join in :)

    You dont have to be afraid of how you look. Everyone in Zumba is trying to watch the instructor and no one is looking at you. It is a great workout and you start sweating in the first 5 minutes. It is fun and as you get used to the routines you can tweak it so you get a better workout, especially holding in your abs and really getting into the moves. The more you put into it the more results you will get. I have Zumba dvd's and I go to the classes at the gym. I prefer going to the gym, but the dvds are great for in the morning or when I just cant get to the gym. Dont forget to take a water bottle with you!

    You won't look silly, because there will be a room full of people doing the exact same moves that you are! Just get there early to get a good spot next to the instructor, let him/her know that you are new and you would like to see some modifications for harder exercises (most are happy to help with this) and then cut loose and have fun!!!

    A friend of mine goes to Zumba classes. She says that you sweat your booty off. I plan to buy a Zumba dvd for beginners and learn at home. If I can handle it, then maybe I'll join a class. Hope you enjoy your experience. Jeannie

    Zumba can burn up to 1000 calories in 1 class. It's addicting too. I just started 3 days ago and I've already lost 2.5lbs so far.

    Everyone looks silly at zumba class! That's the best part. Having fun, working out, letting yourself go. ^_^ Jazzercise is similar. It's aerobics class meets dance class. Both great for people who like to dance.
