In business for almost 50 years, Jazzercise created the global GirlForce initiative to offer young women, ages 16-21, a safe place to workout, stay active and introduce them to a healthy and fun way to experience the endorphins of the workout “high.” The classes are being offered through the end of 2017 and are free of charge. Currently, approximately 2,000 monthly participants have taken advantage of the GirlForce program. Jazzercise classes integrate top-40 hit songs and the latest workout trends such as HIIT, also known as high intensity interval training, Pilates and cardio dance moves.
International participating Jazzercise locations will join the “Day of GirlForce” Celebration classes to inspire teens and college-aged women to be confident and to learn to dance their own path through fitness. “Our company culture has always been to give back, and this year our focus is on supporting young women in creating the healthy habits we’ve come to rely upon,” says CEO and Founder of Jazzercise, Inc., Judi Shepherd Missett.
