Let’s face it. Losing weight can be a drag.
Most forms of exercise like running or going to the gym can be absolute torture and the thought of counting calories makes you want to pull your hair out.
But, what if there was an easier way?
Dance isn’t only an amazing weight loss tool, it’s also fun! All you need is a 40-minute workout once a day and you’re on your way to your goal weight. Dance also goes hand in hand with music which is food for your soul and gives you that much needed mental boost when you’re feeling sluggish. All the endorphins your body is producing will leave you feeling great!
Even if you’re not into fast-paced dancing, slower forms of dance also help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure which are markers of healthy weight loss.
Dancing also strengthens your body which will further support your weight loss journey. You will have a stronger heart and lungs, stronger muscles and better cardio. These benefits will carry over to other physical activities in your life as well. You’ll also have better agility and coordination to tackle those tough yoga positions.
Aside from the physical benefits, dancing also gives psychological gifts that are amazing for weight loss. The mental fortitude and self-esteem you gain will help you get through those tough days when you don’t want to work out.
If you can get the music right and you’re feeling the groove, dancing can burn over 300 calories in one hour. That’s about as much as swimming or riding a bike! It’s also possible to lose 2-3 pounds a week, but don’t forget to enjoy the process.
Your weight loss journey is about to take a turn for the better. We hope we’ve given you enough motivation to get started today! Well then, what are you waiting for? Grab a partner (or go solo if that’s your thing) and start tapping those feet!
