Our Jazzercise Center has laminate flooring and it is very resilient and comfortable for all types of Jazzercise classes. We use our mats to put the balls on because that helps them stay in place better than the bare floor. Good luck!

Thank you! My workshop is in February, 3 weeks from yesterday.

I think we are going to go with laminate (pergo) flooring.... any opinions/ experiences with that?

Congratulations on training to become an instructor! Good luck - you will love it. When is your workshop?

As for flooring, think about the moves you will need to do - lateral steps and slides, pivots on the balls of your feet, etc. If you have the option, I would try to avoid carpet (very hard to pivot). So envious you get your own Jazzercise room! I might need to make one of those for myself someday.

Our center has a poured aerobic floor but that is not practical for a home I wouldn't think.

How about low-pile carpet, like for a rec room-low berber with a heavy pad underneath. I just practice in the living room in bare feet. I also do low-impact to save my knees and shins.

congratulations on becoming an instructor!! And I am SUPER jealous you get a designated room!! :)

Or, if you have an experience (good or bad) with flooring at your center, I'd like to hear that too. Our center has the padded exercise tiles (which hubby is not willing to put in our house).

I am training to become an instructor.. My husband has converted a spare bedroom into a "studio" but I am finding it very difficult to practice on carpet. I am looking into replacing the flooring, but I wondered if anyone has feedback on what is well suited for an in home space. The room is small, so it won't be too expensive.
Thanks!
