Jazzercise Can Provide New Year Workout

January 6, 2015

With the holidays behind us, many people on the island have put their new year’s resolutions into effect, with one local business available to assist with one resolution that appears on many lists: exercise more.

Bermuda Jazzercise with Valentina combines the fun of dance with a rigorous exercise routine, with no experience in either field required to join a class.

A spokesperson for the class said, “Let’s face it: we need motivation to workout, whether it’s the music, the people, the dancing, the appointment in you calendar – whatever it takes, we need it emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually.

“It gives you a new confidence when you know you are doing something good for you and your body.”

All classes take place at the St. Andrew’s Church Hall on the corner of Church and Court Streets. The one hour classes are held three nights each week, beginning at 6.00pm on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

“The best part about the class is the people. We have an amazing group of women who attend, all very warm and friendly, and they make people feel comfortable from the beginning.

“It is often times intimidating to start a new workout program, and they make it easier.

“One lady was pre-diabetic when she came to Jazzercise and her doctor told her she was no longer in range and to ‘keep doing what you are doing.’ Another saw great improvement in their cholesterol levels.”

“It is a fun workout. If you like to dance or if you just like music, it is a blast; many people say they can’t believe the hour flew by like it did. And it gives you more energy.

“Jazzercise is a feel good activity, a stress-buster and a natural anti-depressant. If we have to work out, we might as well have fun while doing it, and this class feels like a dance party, like a girls night out.”
