Try Dancing For an Enjoyable Workout

Everyone out there knows that if you wish to achieve health and also lose weight you need to exercise regularly. Most people are convinced this working out must be completed in an athletic gym. They believe they are in for a slow and tedious hour. They prepare themselves to get a workout spent sweating in a room with a lot of other people that are all doing the same things. They prepare to really feel self conscious. They seldom seem prepared for a satisfying experience. It’s correct that you need to work out frequently if you really want to lose weight and achieve optimum health but nobody says you have to detest the working out that you are going to do. Why not have a shot at dancing?

Dancing is definitely excellent exercise. Dancing–when carried out a few times a week–helps you work your muscles and fortify your heart. Ballroom dancing is a good low impact sport but in order to see results more quickly you should try a jazz or ballet class. Be real: don’t you enjoy dancing–even if you refuse to do it in front of others and only try it out when you’re home by yourself?  This makes for an excellent workout for losing weight and getting healthy.

Perhaps one of the best reason to pursue dancing as a weight loss activity is the enjoyment a person can get from the activity. You don’t necessarily have to sign up for a crowded dance class if you feel self conscious or uncoordinated. There are lots of dancing training videos that you can buy or rent so that you can get your workout in at home. There are also dancing video games like Just Dance, Wii Cheer and the Dancing online game for the Xbox Kinect system. Why not play around with some of these? You’ll be more likely to get into it because you won’t need to feel self conscious. You’ll work up a sweat. Calories will get burnt.

Perhaps the most important reason to take on dancing as your exercise activity is the enjoyment you can get from it. Dancing brings with it an amount of enjoyment and amusement that most other forms of physical exercise do not. All exercise produces endorphins. Dancing is fun therefore it makes those endorphins seem even more powerful. Taking a dance class or playing a dance video or game can also help you build your coordination. This will give you a much healthier sense of self confidence, which can carry over into other areas of your life. It’s great for counteracting depression symptoms.

Be honest with yourself. How often have you viewed a dance movie and actually enjoyed it? How often have you watched thoughtfully and thought: “I should try that.” How often have you considered “I wish I could do that”? You can take action! Not only is dancing great for ones happiness levels, it is great for losing weight and it’s great for your self confidence. Best of all? Dancing is fun. Most people  find at least a little bit of fun every time they “shake their groove things”.
