After piccolos were caught distributing performance-enhancing drugs, saxophones became the most popular personal trainers. Sweat to sax songs with today's deal: one month of unlimited access to Jazzercise classes at any one of 31 Jazzercise locations in the San Jose area (see sidebar for details) for $29. Prices vary at each location, but one month of unlimited classes plus the included joining fee can cost up to $95. This funk-fueled, head-to-toe regimen tightens muscles, boosts energy, and sheds pounds.
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 when bleaching the ceiling, today's Groupon gives you a chance to discover how the exercise phenomenon evolved into one of today's best total body workouts. 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. Expect to burn up to 500 calories during each round. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though you won't need her moves to get the most out of your class. Review basic moves online before you go.
Class formats are just as diverse as the moves. There are Jazzercises to sculpt your bod, cut your workout time in half, or help you get those Rachel Dratch arms you asked for last Christmas. Some locations even offer a junior Jazzercise and Jazzercise team dance to let you work out with your kids and teenagers. As for the ittie-ditties, childcare is available during select times at many locations.
This Groupon is for new clients or those who have not been registered with Jazzercise for three months or longer.
- 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
