What You'll Get
Today's deal gets you two months of access to Jazzercise classes at any of the Nashville area's nine locations for $27. This funk-fueled, head-to-toe regimen tightens muscles, boosts energy, and sheds pounds.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
Just as varied as the workouts are the class formats themselves. There are special Jazzercises geared to sculpt your bod, cut your workout time in half, or help you get those Rachel Dratch arms you asked for last Christmas. There's even a junior Jazzercise and Jazzercise team dance at some locations, which let you work out with your kids and teenagers. As for the ittie-ditties, childcare is available during select times at many locations.
If Jazzercise is a fleeting '80s memory for you, like your Betamax tape of ALF reruns or the "Frankie Say Relax" T-shirt you wear to do masonry work, today's Groupon gives you a chance to discover how the exercise phenomenon has evolved into one of the better total body workouts available today. Just leave the hot-pink leotard in your glove compartment.
- If you love to dance (or even if you don't), this is the class for you. Everyone is so welcoming and crazy (in a good way) that you'll be hooked after your first time. – Judy P., Insider Pages
Exercises of the Jazz Greats
Jazzercise combines upbeat music and energetic dance moves in an exercise paradise that lets you stay as physically fit as jazz music’s greatest performers. Here’s how a few legendary jazz musicians got their exercise:
Duke Ellington: Slept in a coffin which he believed granted him super-strength
Count Basie: Did jumping jacks until his heart exploded every day
Charlie Parker: Ate three raw eggs and four light bulbs for breakfast
Miles Davis: A quirk in his recording contract made him legally unable to turn down a push-up contest
John Coltrane: Built an Olympic-size swimming pool and filled it with angry lions for him to swim-fight
