Dancing as a Great Way To Achieve A Healthy Body

Posted by on Feb 24, 2016 in Fitness, Hobbies | Comments Off on Dancing as a Great Way To Achieve A Healthy Body

I always dreamed of having a beautiful, fit, and healthy body. However, I came from an obese family. We all love to eat and for us it is the best way to bond. I always get bullied growing up and that is because of my extra-large size. When I was in high school, I became aloof. I don’t want to mingle with other people because I feel like I don’t belong. When I went to college, I became interested in dancing. At first, it was very difficult to pursue my passion for dancing because most of the people who take dance classes are already slim and are already great dancers. I was an okay dancer, but what made me hesitant was that I was embarrassed to perform because I was fat.

However, I swallowed my pride and took all the courage I had left to join dance classes. It was really tough at first because people were saying mean things behind my back. But I pushed on, especially after I found out that there are lots of health benefits from dancing. I decided to make it a part of my day to day health habit. Through dancing, I gradually lost weight while gaining more and more knowledge and skills.

My passion continued to this day, when I am already a mother of two but still fit and fab, and able to do a lot of things. Thanks to dancing! Did I mention that I am a fan of Madonna Grimes? She is one of the most influential people and actually one of the advocates of dancing as a way of healthy living.

Dancing is a form of exercise. It helps tone and slims your entire body. Dancing is so much fun! I usually dance with my peers, but I don’t mind dancing alone. I can simply jut get loose and no one will see me. It is an instant calorie burner. Just shake your body to the music and share the calories away. Don’t you know that dancing enables you to burn more calories than workout? A workout routine can be challenging and stressful, but in dancing you will never feel the burn because you will look at it as a form of entertainment. Active dancing, the ones that involves rocking the body will enable you to burn up to 700 calories per hour. Isn’t that amazing?

Below is an example of a video dance routine for weight loss that you can try out:

What I love the most in dancing is that it lets you lose fat in all the right places. Performing regular dance routine will help you achieve a slimmer hips, sexier waist, beautiful thighs and butt. Dancing is a holistic exercise approach. It does not just target a particular area of the body, but the entire parts of the body. Another great benefit of dancing is it gives you a great cardio workout. If you are struggling to lose weight, then I strongly suggest that you should try dancing. You don’t have to be a great dancer. As long as you know how to groove and jive, then I’m pretty sure you can dance off the inches away.
