Millions of people worldwide have now fallen in love with the new dance fitness craze, and it’s not hard to see why.
Dancing is not only fun; practised regularly it can promote effective weight loss. Even Robbie Savage, the recently retired pro footballer, admitted he lost an inch off his waist during his time on Strictly Come Dancing.
Why is Dance Fitness such a good way of losing weight? As with any aerobic exercise, dance fitness workouts employ the big, oxygen-hungry muscle groups of the body.
The extra demand for oxygen requires a huge response from the heart, lungs and blood vessels (the so-called cardiovascular system).
All of this high-intensity action requires a fuel source – carbs and fats.
Look good; feel good
Many of us could afford to shed a few pounds here and there, but looking good is about more than just your BMI.
Although a leaner body will give muscles more definition, the shape (tone) and size of those muscles can be finely sculpted using dance fitness workouts.
Street dance fitness workouts are particularly beneficial to the legs and glutes, but don’t worry; if you want a flatter, more defined abdomen or a stronger upper body there are specific movements that can target these specific areas.
Of course, if fitness was easy we would all be boasting lean, trim physiques but working out requires effort and commitment.
Doing the same exercises week in, week out can become boring, and boredom has a catastrophic effect on your motivation. You find yourself losing stamina and this reduces the fat-burning potential of your workout.
This is where Street Dance Fitness suddenly starts to demonstrate its unique appeal. With new dance routines to master, you will always have a positive reason for attending your dance fitness class.
Once you’ve learned the latest movements, you can show them off to your peers the next time you hit town.
The Hip Hop Beat
And then there’s the music. Street Fit workouts are performed to energizing, high tempo music that is designed to get you moving, while forgetting that you’re actually working.
Once you’ve mastered the Hip Hop eight count, you will have found the key to the street dance choreography and your progress will soar.
And There’s More
There are extra benefits too, including:
1. An improved social life, whether you’re looking to make new friendships or win over that hot guy or girl at the club!
2. Better co-ordination, enabling you to move with more style and grace – on and off the floor.
3. More flexibility, keeping your body youthful and strong.
4. More flexibility, keeping your body youthful and strong.
