Are you tired of the same old workout routine and looking to spice up your exercises with new dance moves?
You’re trying to work out, and that’s great! But has it become a kinda boring same ol’ routine?
You need to keep working out consistently to lose weight and stay fit. The key to working out consistently is adding some variety and –gasp—trying to have some fun.
And is there anyone reading this that doesn’t agree that dancing can be a whole lot more fun than run-walking on that treadmill day after day?
Toning up with a dancing workout can target key trouble spots like your abs and thighs–all while burning anywhere from 300 to 400 calories per hour (or more, depending on the tempo).
The best part: While classes are available at many gyms and dance studios, you can get your groove on with a home workout right in your own living room (dance-inspired workout DVDs are great fitness tools as well).
So, to help you get you started, we’ve broken down five fun dance routines that’ll make you forget you’re even exercising.
