Day two of Jazzercise Tropic Heat was jam-packed with various Jazzercise classes.
After breakfast in our hotel room (healthy banana bread with peanut butter and fruit), my mom, sister and I walked to the first class of the day, Beach Club Boot Camp. The Jazzercise instructors did a great job of shuffling people around every three songs or so during this class so the nearly 2,000 Jazzercisers all had a chance to be close to the stage and really feel the energy from those teaching.
The second class was a ballet-type class that my mom, sister and I started taking together, but left about halfway through to check out the expo.
We didn’t buy any apparel, but I was awfully tempted to purchase this lime-green shirt just in case an ‘80s-themed party pops up on my agenda sometime in the future.
Lime green + Off-the-shoulder + Jazzercise-themed = ‘80s party gold
The next class we attended was led by Tim Roberts who was my favorite instructor of the day.
He was charismatic, hilarious and energizing. His class was a lot more dance-focused and participants learned a dance routine that we repeated multiple times to various songs, learning new moves along the way. His music selections kept us guessing and laughing. The Wobble. Beyoncé. Justin Bieber. Call Me Maybe. It was great!
Following Tim’s class, there was a nearly three-hour break that we used to get lunch and lounge by the hotel pool with other Jazzercise folks.
Post-pool time, we changed back into our workout gear to take two more Jazzercise classes to round out the day.
The first class was a Sultry Salsa class led by four Italian guys who definitely played up their flirtatious dance moves and worked the crowd!
Shanna Missett Nelson, the president of Jazzercise, took everyone through the final class of the day with a bunch of other instructors. It was a great way to bring Tropic Heat to a close.
I’m so glad my mom invited me and my sister to join her at this fun event. It was a great mother-daughter experience and my sister and I loved doing something my mom loves so much with her. We had a blast!
