Throughout history, mankind has sought to combine its favorite things, leading to triumphs like chocolate croissants as well as atrocities like the XFL. Experience one of the best combos with today's Groupon: $39 gets you two months of unlimited jazzercise classes from Jazzercise Charlotte at any of 14 locations (a $121 value).
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. If you're prone to first-class jitters or the desire to dominate your body first with knowledge, review the basic moves online before hitting the class and burning off up to 500 calories in a jazzo inferno. The class formats are as varied as the workouts, giving you the power of choice. There are special Jazzercises geared to sculpt your bod, cut your workout time in half, and turn you into a precisely tuned, deadly, calorie-annihilating machine. Teen and preteen classes focus on getting youthful rapscallions to enjoy exercise while teaching the many benefits of physical activity. Your two-month unlimited pass grants you the right of sampling, mixing and matching as many classes as you like.
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
