The Fitness Class with Rhythm

    Jazzercise is awesome! I did Jazzercise in college and then got out of the swing as I went out in the real world for work. I noticed a Jazzercise center near my new apartment and have been going at least 4 times a week for the past 8 months. I have lost weight and have noticed a nice change in tone. Jazzercise is fun and I recommend it to everyone! All the instructors are super nice so if you are worried about learning the steps you should have no problem finding someone to answer your questions. GOOOO JAZZERCISE! - 12/29/2009 9:27:11 AM
    i tried it years ago, and I LOVED it, but I am such a klutz, that I was actually asked to leave on about the 5th class, and she refunded all of my money... needless to say, it left a bad feeling with me and sabotaged that particular effort to get into shape. Now in my 50's, I would not let that stop me, but back then... It was sad! - 12/20/2009 1:15:21 PM
  • Is Jazzercise good for someone with severe lower back issues? I have severe lumbar spinal stenosis and facet arthritis of the lower spine, resulting in extreme pain down both buttocks and the length of my left leg. I even have what feels like charley horses in my left calf that make it painful to bend over or even to lift my leg. I also have osteo-arthritis of the left knee that has left it pretty much bone-on-bone, so doing any sort of lunges or knee bends is pretty much out of the question. - 11/22/2009 11:15:19 PM
  • I'm thinking about doing jazzercise but I have never danced and am a total klutz with no rhythm. Do you think I can learn the moves? - 10/3/2009 7:14:03 PM
  • Glad to finally see something about the benefits of Jazzercise. I have been a member for 13 years and still love it! I will be participating in the Jazzercise half time show for the Miami Dolphins vs Buffalo Bills football game on Oct 4th 2009 at 4PM. Our proceeds will go to the Susan G Komen breast cancer awareness foundation. - 9/3/2009 11:06:41 PM
    I have been doing Jazzercise for 3yrs, 7 mos. LOVE IT! You can't dance without smiling.
    Just attended the Jazzercise conference in La Quita, CA. Much fun. Have danced my way down Main Street Disneyland, performed at Staple Center half time show for Clippers, next event is Staples for the Galaxy! Join, well worth the money and great cardio and strength training that is enjoyable. - 7/19/2009 7:14:00 PM
  • I love Jazzercise. I've been doing it for about a year now.
    I was surprised, it isn't listed as one of the activities under cardio. I put high impact aerobics, which is the closest thing I could find. - 4/29/2009 7:40:47 PM
  • I took my first Jazzercise class yesterday. I had a good time, left feeling really good about myself. Today I am feeling it, but not painful. There is a lady in her 70's in my class that has been Jazzercising for 18 years, and her movements are so tiny that she barely moves, but there she is. She is my inspiration to keep going! - 3/19/2009 3:08:39 PM
  • I received a Forever Fit postcard in the mail the last week of February before I left for my cruise. I called and signed up and was looking forward to jazzercise. I started this week and have been 3 times this week and enjoying every moment of it!! I find myself doing the little moves around the house singing songs in my head from the workout. I turned 35 Sunday and am determined to lose weight and get in shape. Through sparkpeople and jazzercise, I believe I will do it!! I look forward to going to class and it is a TOTAL BODY workout. Love it!! - 3/13/2009 2:21:12 PM

    Jazzercise is great. I have been doing jazz for 6 years and have met many new friends. Since my husband doesn't like to dance it's a great way for me to dance and get much needed excercise. Since the routins are always changing your body doesn't get used to the workout. - 3/10/2009 10:00:29 AM
  • You know the program has to be good when it has been around for 40 years!
    Jazzercise is celebrating it's 40 year anniversary this year! I have been jazzin' for over 25 years myself. LOVE IT! Every other month we get new music and routines. We are now dancing to 'Jai Ho' from Slumdog Millionaire which is really a fun song. It is always fresh and never boring! You can look up classes in your area at - TRY IT - You'l LOVE it! - 3/3/2009 2:45:13 PM
  • I did Jazzercise in the late happy to have joined again! I am into a fit lifestyle now. I goes to show its never too late to start exercising again. I am 50 plus years old and my body is happy to move! The music is not what I listen to on the radio, but it does have a beat that makes me want to dance...... - 2/8/2009 3:49:06 PM
    I have been a fan of Jazzercise since 1980 after my son was born. I gained 40 lbs with him, and with watching my calories and Jazzercise I ended up smaller than before I got pregnant. I still do it (just finished as a matter of fact) at home with my Jazzercise DVD's. Just recently ordered the newest one from the Jazzercise website. I was also disappointed that Jazzercise was not in the fitness tracker. - 1/10/2009 1:04:48 PM
  • It's good to see an article on Jazzercise and to see how many folks are active members. I remember going to early classes (mid 70's) with an older friend of mine and thinking this is good for all ages. Fast forward to the present and I find myself looking for, going to and enjoying the classes more these days. In my opinion jazzercise has grown and become better over the years......I intend to keep in up, whither I am in the states or out. - 1/1/2009 8:55:58 AM
  • 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! - 12/29/2008 9:03:56 PM
