In response to “At nearly 50, Jazzercise lives on in the age of Zumba” (Jan. 30)
As you get older, it gets harder to do things. Simple things like bringing in groceries, walking, and even breathing. Having this sudden weakness causes people to not be able to do things they once loved.
Well, with daily public activities like Jazzercise or Zumba, the elderly can maintain their health. With Zumba and Jazzercise, it is easy on the joints, is moving meditation, and it gives you a chance to socialize with others your age! Zumba and Jazzercise are low-impact exercise where you still raise your heart rate and are still exercising. Jazzercise is moving meditation because at the end of every class, the instructor ends the class with an amazing cool-down.
Finally, in Zumba and Jazzercise, there are other elderly people in the same situation as you! You can meet new people in class with the same interests. So if you want to maintain your health and socialize with others your age, I suggest Zumba or Jazzercise!
