I love Jazzercise. I was never able to find a fitness routine that I could stay with until I found Jazzercise. Believe me, I have tried everything under the sun. As an older, out of shape gal when I started, I was able to modify by eliminating any jumping or skipping and just marching. I guess I have a super instructor, because she always explains the modification you can make for each exercise while still showing us how to get the most out of the exercise like using big arm movements, straight arms, or raising your knees high, and she also encourages everyone to try to step bigger, add a little jump, or try one of the more challenging positions when doing floor work. If you are looking for a fitness routine that you will want to go back to again and again, and will find yourself smiling when you are right in the middle of the class and sweating buckets, this is for you. I recently bought a Polar FT4 heart rate monitor, and I consistently burn between 450 and 600 calories each time I attend class. If my knee or back is bothering me, I just ratchet it down a bit.
