I have done Jazzercise for eight months on a twelve month commitment plan. I am counting the days until I am done. I find this exercise so low level. There are some instructors that move and offer a fair workout. Others are so lame that its hard to call it exercise. I consider Jazzercise an activity, not an exercise.
The dance moves are awful. The counts are off and hard to follow (two of our local instructors are also teachers so they are the better ones for instructions). The first month I heard the word "booty" so many times I thought it was a "booty class". We often do "single single, double" movements which are SO annoying. Just keep counting and moving!
Many participants think the class is their own private club. They shuffle, run and go ALL over the floor with no attention to others in the room. It is scary.
The instructors keep the music LOUD and will raise the volume repeatedly during the classes.
I find the exercises are very hard on the back. Each day has a new set of music but the latest set of music presented has been extremely hard on the back. It is not a class for those with any back issues.
Jazzercise assumes you have good core and are into shaking your hips with loud music.
There will be a PARTY in December when I am done Jazzercise.
I think walking, biking, kickboxing and spinning are MUCH better exercise options.
