Dance for Fitness

The debate on the athleticism, physical requirements and benefits of dancing is finally being put to rest and the sport is gaining much deserved respect. Generally an aerobic exercise, regular sessions of dancing can bring well known health benefits, such as:

  • weight control
  • flexibility
  • strength
  • endurance
  • reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease
  • a sense of psychological well-being
However, like any task done to the extreme, there are health risks that come with the demands of professional dancing, which can include:

  • Sport injuries
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Stress associated with a higher than average risk of eating disorders and body image
There are as many types of dance as there are running shoes. From ballet, hip hop and swing to belly, Latin and country western, there is a dance for everyone. So turn on a favourite type of music and dance like no one is watching getting fit in the process.

When it comes to exercise and achieving the individual fitness goals that we set for ourselves, often we need more fitness equipment than just our own body. Increasing fitness levels and achieving overall health, requires a commitment to a regimented eating and exercise program that will result in the shedding of fat and building of muscle.
