Dance your Way to Fitness

This month we have a confession to make. All of us are lazy and can’t even dream of going to the gym to lift those weights. When the weather is good, we like to sit by the window and reminisce with a coffee.

Tired of encouraging ourselves to get out and get going we decided to look into alternatives to gyms, weights and running. Our inspiration came from watching endless hours of YouTube videos of people finding new ways to work out with nature, like heading for the woods and using branches for weights.

This is also about the time we found out that dancing is a legit workout.  And who doesn’t like to shake a leg. We know we do!

Dancing can be done in a group, with partners, or even alone. You can dance, at athe gym, social venue, or at home. It has both physical and mental benefits. All you need is a beat.

Alright, we’ll bite, just writing about dance is making us rhyme (badly). But seriously, here are some benefits and improvements of moving to the beats:

  • Balance
  • Agility
  • Weight Management
  • Endurance
  • Better Heart and Lungs Conditions
  • Muscular Strength
  • Stronger Bones
  • Reduced Risk of Osteoporosis
  • Confidence and Self-Esteem

From Zumba to Salsa and even those Bollywood beats, find the ones that get tour feet tapping to the rhythm. After all, let’s face it, after the first few selfies of posing at the gym, there isn’t much else keeping you going.

So come on and turn the music up!
