The best way to describe this change is that the old logo was all jazz and no exercise and the new logo is no jazz and all exercise. Both options are forgettable and generic, but the new one is more so, blending in with every fitness venue/trend/thing ever. My guess is that Jazzercise is trying to align itself more with the Crossfit craze and needing to amp up its hardcore-ness. Execution-wise, I guess the new logo is not terrible. It's properly done and definitely exudes a fitness-y, sport-y attitude.
Thanks to Celine DeMeyer for the tip.
