Jazzercise steps in to new location
Jazzercise Pampa, now located at 2211 Perryton Parkway, has been getting into their groove at their new location since Jan. 1.
“We’ve been doing classes off and on here and then decided to move here permanently,” Tammi Stevens, owner of Jazzercise Pampa, said. “We were at the Pampa Youth and Community Center and kind of always wanted our own facility. Jazzercise is franchise-owned and we felt like we needed to move out. This was a step up to have our own building.”
Seth and Leslie Haynes own the building that is now housing Jazzercise and offered it to Stevens.
“We were very grateful to them for letting us come here,” Stevens said.
While the COVID-19 protocols has led to even deeper cleaning, Stevens has seen customers just ready to work up a sweat.
“We still deep clean and disinfect the equipment after every use,” Stevens said. “I think everybody is just ready to come and workout.”
Jazzercise has seven instructors offering 12 classes a week, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. on Saturday and 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. The month of January is free, followed by $58/month starting in February.
“We have 12 classes to pick from and when you become a member there are three Facebook live classes a week,” Stevens said. “You also get a password for live classes with the owners up in California with corporate instructors.”
Jazzercise is aerobic exercise that has a multitude of health benefits.
“It’s good for your heart and your mind,” Stevens said. “During COVID-19, a lot of people got down mentally, it helped them, too. Jazzercise can also lower blood pressure reduce anxiety. We start losing muscle at age 30 so it’s important to exercise. When you lose muscle mass, your metabolism slows down.”
For more information call Stevens at 806-663-2065 or find them on Facebook at Jazzercise Pampa.
“It’s been a very beneficial move for us,” Stevens said. “We’re always taking on new members. It’s for all ages. Each class has a modified version so if someone has bad knees we will show them how to protect the knees (or other injuries).”
