Keith is spending the first week full week of January exploring ways to get fit in the new year.

He visited Jazzersize in Jeffersonville to check out how instructors combine aerobics with strength training, flexibility, and high-energy dance movements.

The workout program, which offers a fusion of jazz dance, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing movements, has positively affected millions of people worldwide.

Benefits include increased cardiovascular endurance, strength, and flexibility, as well as an overall "feel good" factor.
