Jazzercise Eats Its Words
after being accused of weight bias. MeFites may recall the heated discussion
this story originally garnered (and the associated firestorm
in Metatalk) when Jazzercise refused to hire an instructor that did not meet their "fit appearance" criteria. They have since changed their policy "based upon the information and research that perhaps it's possible for people of varying weights to be fit."
The barred instructor has gone on to start her own successful aerobics franchise based on her "fitness-at-any-size" philosophy.
