Mother And Daughter Lose 183 Lbs With A Fun Workout From The 80s

The 80s workout is still kicking, and this pair of mother and daughter show that it is as efficient as any contemporary alternatives.

Thanks to Jazzercise they lost more than 183 lbs combined! Everything started after being invited to a class in January 2016.

Now, they are regular followers and perfect examples of this approach. It has become a favorite way of exercising for Jaime Allison, 40, and Calista Jones, 18, because who does not like to dance?

These women recognized that burning fat through dancing was the best way for them to start changing their lives in a fun and not stressful way.

Jaime can relate to her daughter, as she remembers herself being a teenager struggling with excess weight and the following self-esteem problems. Doing this together motivates them both and allows to spend more time together, which is no less important.

Starting from occasional visits they went to 3 to 4 workouts a week, and also enrolled in the Weight Watchers program. Now, as they eat healthier along with a fun way of exercising, the changes have become striking.

Not only did they motivate each other, but also inspire others by publishing their transformations on social networks where they demonstrate their team spirit and share results and diets.

As to the workout itself, although Jazzercise has caught on in the 80s, it was created in 1969 by Judi Sheppard Missett.

It is described as a fusion of dancing, cardio, Pilates, yoga, strength, hip-hop, and kickboxing, burning up to 800 calories per session of 60 minutes.

It has evolved by now, but the essence remained unchanged. These women have managed to change their lives, get healthier, and improve their mother-daughter relationship.
