Without a variable workout, exercise quickly becomes nothing more than a sisyphean routine of lifting boulders, running up hills, and running away from sudden boulder avalanches. Add some spice to your routine with today’s Groupon to Abbi’s Jazzercise, with locations in Aptos and Santa Cruz. Choose between the following options: <p>
- For $19, you get 10 jazzercise classes (a $120 value).
- For $29, you get 20 jazzercise classes (a $240 value). <p>
Blending a trifecta of cardio exercises, muscle-toning maneuvers, and stretching, the one-hour classes at Abbi’s Jazzercise whittle down waistlines with engaging dance routines set to top 40, jazz, country, funk, and classic tunes. Like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s gubernatorial board meetings, each class begins with a gentle warm-up before transitioning into 30 minutes of cardio routines featuring easy-to-follow motions that combine elements of kickboxing and Pilates. Dancers then don handheld or wrap weights to provide resistance during muscle-sculpting sessions focusing on specific quadrants before cooling down with stretches designed to break down lactic acid and promote flexibility.
Jazzercise classes come in a variety of forms, tailoring routines to accommodate everyone from seniors and expectant mothers to hardcore exercisers looking to gain a competitive edge in bodybuilder look-alike contests. Daycare is available Monday–Friday during 9 a.m. classes at the Santa Cruz facility, allowing busy moms the freedom to get in shape without having to invest in spandex child-carrier backpacks.
