WHY YOU SHOULD INCLUDE DANCING IN YOUR FITNESS ROUTINE:
By: Shanda "Mango" Brown
Have you ever been to a family reunion? A birthday party? A night out with friends?
Do you remember dancing, or watching people dance, so much they began to sweat? They may have even said “Whew, I feel like I just worked out!,” or “Man I wish I could lose weight by moving like this all the time!”
That’s the beauty of dance fitness. A dance fitness class provides a fun and carefree environment while giving you the movement you need to burn calories and tone your muscles. Cardio- check. Muscle burnout- check. Functional movement-check. You can accomplish in a dance fitness class everything you would in the gym, and the best part is you can do it anywhere! If you have been using “the gym” as an excuse to not get in your daily exercise, then this could be your solution!
Dance cardio allows you to “shake it off” to some of your favorite songs in an uptempo style. You also get plenty of options depending on your personal style and preference such as:Twerk, Bounce, Barre, Meditation and Movement, Hip Hop, and so much more!
Don’t worry, you don’t need any dance experience! Dance cardio is all about letting your guard down, having fun, and letting your endorphins lift your spirits. The best part is, depending on how hard you work you can walk away having burned up to 400 calories in an hour dance fitness class on average!
No weights needed. No machines required. Just a willing spirit. Let’s dance!
