Dance Like No One Is Watching - How Dance Puts the Fun Back Into Fitness

Sometimes fitness can feel like a chore especially when you have fallen into that all too familiar feeling of monotony in your routine. What if there was a way to inject FUN back into fitness? The answer you have been looking for is DANCE! Dance is a surefire way to stay fit and have fun at the same time. Let's look at the benefits of dance and explore the various options you have for adding a little groove into your workout schedule:

Is Dance A Workout?
In short, definitely! Dance workouts are typically categorised as Low-Intensity Steady State workouts (LISS). This means that the intensity of the movements might be low but they are constant for longer periods. This kind of workout is perfect for those who are looking to lose weight, improve stamina, or for beginner gym goers.

What Do I Choose?
There are countless dance styles to choose from, each with its unique benefits. Hip-hop is a high-energy dance style that can help you burn calories and build strength. It's an excellent choice for people who love music and want to improve their coordination. Salsa, on the other hand, is a Latin dance style that can help you improve your flexibility and balance. It's a great way to get your heart rate up and work on your footwork.

Zumba is another popular dance style that has taken the fitness world by storm. It's a high-energy dance workout that combines Latin music with easy-to-follow dance moves. Zumba can help you burn up to 600 calories in an hour and is suitable for people of all fitness levels. It's a fun and social way to stay fit and meet new people.

We have several dance classes ranging from Zumba to Dancefit that you can choose from if you are looking to add a new spin to your workouts.

What Are The Benefits?
Dance has an array of benefits such as improving your heart health, aiding with coordination, becoming more social, reducing stress, and improving flexibility to name just a few. Dancing can help boost serotonin levels that can help put you in a positive mood and mindset too!

If we were to choose an all-round fitness option that can benefit ANYONE, it would be dance. Book your spot in one of our classes and you can reap the benefits for yourself!
