I was happy to see this article about Jazzercise, since I had just joined on October 15, 2008. I have been going strong for 2 months and lost 15 pounds since joining. Of course, I gained 3 pounds during the holidays and am working hard on losing that, but I have noticed that my body feels so much better. I had almost given up on exercise because of my back problems (repeated ruptured discs) and bad knees, but it is true that during each workout, the instructor always gives everyone alternaive (low impact) moves to do that won't compromise your heart rate. I LOVE to dance, so I don't know why I didn't think of this before! It really gives you an all-over body workout. I don't have some of the aches and pains that I used to and feel like I'm getting the best of both worlds. It is like having your own personal trainer, but not as expensive. You can't help but be encouraged during class because everyone is so supportive and they are all working towards the same goal. They aren't in class to meet men and you definately can't just stand there, so you are guaranteed a great workout every time you go! I am so happy to have found something that I enjoy and I really hate to drive past my Jazzercise studio! I have even been rolling out of bed on my days off and going. I am actually going on New Year's Day to sign up for "Personal Touch" strength and stretch training. If I go that day, I get 50% off. I joined during a promotion for Forever Fit, so my classes cost me about $39 per month with unlimited classes. I have been going 4 times per week. If anyone has any questions, let me know!
