Jazzercise Still Exists

I have to say, I had no idea that Jazzercise was still a thing, but it absolutely is every day in Stratham! 



I spoke with Ginny Scease about her Jazzercise classes in Stratham.  Seven days a week, you can shake your booty and get fit at the same time with that phenomenal exercise craze that was so popular when I was a teenager in the 80's.

History of Jazzercise

Jazzercise was created in 1969, Ginny tells me in an email, by Judi Sheppard Misset in Illinois.  She then brought it to San Diego, California in 1973.  Judi then franchised her business and over the years, her business has grown to over 8,300 franchisees!

Jazzercise is a Combination of Movements

You can get a great workout with a Jazzercise class.  Cardio, resistance training, pilates, yoga, kickboxing, and dance are all included in the workout.  There is lots of variety in the music, so you'll never get sick of the same stuff.

All Ages and Abilities are Welcome

Ginny says that her youngest dancer is 13 years old who comes with her Mom.  Her oldest is an 85-year-old who makes sure that she dances every day.

You Can Take Classes Online

There are 13 classes in person during the week.  They stream those classes online too in case you can't make it.  Each class is about 55 - 60 minutes.
