5 reasons why Dance fitness is a good alternative to gym

Updated: Jun 13, 2019

So you are one of those people, like me, who loves to work out but doesn’t like going to the guy? The reason could be anything from creepy people staring at you in the gym to you find gym exercises too stiff. Whatever the reason may be, you can try an easier alternative option. Dance. Here are a few benefits of using dance as fitness alternative.

It improves your cardiovascular health

If you take up dancing at an intense level you’ll definitely improve your cardiovascular health. Just join any dance class near you. The trainer will make you sweat and you will definitely not regret it.

It helps you lose weight

Dance helps you burn those extra calories because any form of dance when done correctly will help you lose and maintain your weight.

It does not require any equipment

Dance generally does not use any types of equipment which is a huge advantage for people dancing at home.

It improves your balance

Dancing is a movement. To keep on dancing with correct posture and position automatically improves your balance.

Anyone can do it

Dance is something that can be done by anyone. I have been to gyms where when attempting to do squats at the squat rack I have been dismissed and told not to do it because girls don’t do it. Dance doesn’t quite have such discriminations.

If you are a dance lover like I am, this will probably be your preferred option seeing the dance workout won’t feel like a workout in the first place. Come join me at my Zumba class or drop in during our Bollywood class. But don’t forget to comment on how has dance treated you.
