(CARLSBAD, CA—June 1, 2017)—Leading global dance fitness company, Jazzercise, Inc. has created a 2017 initiative that supports the growth and development of young women by offering free classes to girls ages 16 to 21. The program, GirlForce, aims to empower teens and college-aged women by offering them a place to get fit, learn healthy habits, and experience a positive sense of community through fun workout routines with like-minded women.

In business for almost 50 years, Jazzercise created the global GirlForce initiative to offer young girls, ages 16-21, a safe place to workout, stay active and introduce them to the healthy endorphin “high” one feels after a good sweat. The classes are free of charge, for all of 2017 and approximately 2,000 monthly participants have taken advantage of the GirlForce program so far.

Offering lively and heart-pumping choreographed workouts, the program integrates top-40 hit songs and the latest workout trends such as HIIT, also known as high intensity interval training. Teenagers are describing GirlForce as a “fun workout,” a “great time,” a “super motivating” environment, and a place that allows girls to “really let go and have fun.”

“The goal of GirlForce is for young women to build better health through fitness and boost self-esteem so they have the confidence and strength to do great things,” says CEO and Founder of Jazzercise, Inc., Judi Shepherd Missett.

Participating Jazzercise locations encourage teens and college-aged women to join the movement and learn to “dance their own path.” “As a mom of two girls, I know that young women confront unique challenges,” continues President of Jazzercise, Inc. Shanna Missett Nelson. “We know what physical activity does for us, and we hope that by offering girls a safe place to get fit, we can help them become strong women!” adds Sheppard Missett.

While Jazzercise, Inc. and its franchisees have raised over $28MM for charities over their 47 year history, this the first time the company has developed a corporate initiative. Young women who are interested in joining the GirlForce can find more information at jazzercise.com/GirlForce or follow @jazzerciseinc Instagram page.
