Dance aerobics is not just a 1980s craze with bad hairstyles, a lot of hairspray, and multicolored leggings. It is still a popular part of fitness and fun across the world, especially in the United States. Not only are there a number of at-home exercise videos to try, health clubs, gyms, recreation centers, and YMCAs are offering every kind of dance aerobics there is. You can even check videos out of your local library.
Modern dance inspires aerobics, and the dance styles of the 21st century apply here. There is ballet-inspired aerobics, gothic and traditional belly dance aerobics, salsa workouts, Brazilian, jazz, and hip hop. Even those who have never danced a day in her life can get started with fun and easy to follow movements.
If you weigh about 150 pounds and do just 15 minutes a day of dance aerobics, in one year you will have burned enough calories to lose about 10 pounds. The more you weigh, the more calories you can burn and the more weight you will lose. Not to mention, it builds strength, confidence, flexibility, and makes your metabolism work faster. Since most aerobics classes are 30 to 60 minutes, the benefits of even a couple of dance aerobics workouts a week are still awful.
Other benefits include:
- It can boost up your immune system.
- It can strengthen your overall body.
- It is suitable for people of all age group, both men or women, and body type.
- It is fun especially if you dance with the music that you like.
So say goodbye to thunder thighs, flabby belly, sagging arms, and a shapeless rear forever by devoting just a little time to this wonderful dance. It is a decision you will not regret.
