    Pros

    Jazzercise can be a really fantastic side job. The pay isn't great, but you not only get a free membership there, you can work out during work! The entire staff was really friendly and made the job that much better.

    Cons

    This is not a job you can take on as a sole means of income- it is very, very part time.

  2. I love Jazzercise

    Pros

    Where else can you go to get paid to have fun, dance, and get fit at the same time!

    Cons

    When under the weather, you sometimes need to find a substitute on a short notice.

  3. Fun, innovative, inspiring … but no money to be made.

    Pros

    You get to share your love of dance and fitness with fun upbeat people. The program stays fresh and is continually working to deliver a quality and effective product for our customers.

    Cons

    Recently the company seems to be moving away from encouraging individual franchise operations to a more corporate center focus. It is almost impossible to make any money doing this anymore.

    Pros

    I am my own boss. Jazzercise Inc. is helpful when a problem or question arises. It is the only place I can forget about my everyday problems for one hour. The students are wonderful. Jazzercise has been a part of my life for half of my life. It keeps me healthy and fit. Jazzercise has helped me get through some rough stuff over the years. It is fun. They keep current in marketing and promoting, they have a plan we can adapt to. They do alot of work for us in that respect.

    Cons

    The economy has kept enrollment low. I have found over the years when things get tough in a family, mom's Jazzercise is the first thing to get dropped off the weekly schedule. I have heard that excuse for quitting many times, I think it is very sad. When things are tough, that's when we all need the stress release the most. Alot of people think the instructor gets a pay check from Jazzercise. We get paid by the student and Jazzercise gets a percentage of that, we need to pay rent and other ongoing expenses, and are left with a few dollars when all is said and done. We really don't make much money, but you have to look at other benefits brought to the table.

    Advice to Management

    Management within Jazzercise is great. They are there if you need them. And they seem aware of new things popping up in the fitness industry. After forty years, it's still the only program around and still going strong.

  10. Great job, Wish it paid more

    Pros

    You get paid to exercise. It's fun and you're surrounded by great people.

    Cons

    I wish it paid more so that i could make a living off of it. It's tough to work a job, and teach a fitness class. It's a lot of work, for a little pay

    Advice to Management

    Really acknowledge when someone is working really hard for the company teaching large amounts of classes, or having a great amount of customers for a small area

  11. The success that one attains in Jazzercise is totally up that person!

    Pros

    A franchisee with Jazzercise gets great workouts, learns routines to great up-to-date music, meets tons of great people, and corporate is there when you need help.

    Cons

    Obtaining and working a franchise with Jazzercise is challenging and expensive. Actually making a profit is a lot of hard work.

    Advice to Management

    The passion of leadership within Jazzercise is amazing. The energy level is astounding. I believe you really couldn't work for a more motivating, enaged company.
