I found ballroom dancing not only provides a great workout, but it also can improve your coordination, boost your mood, and can get you out of the house. It doesn't matter if it is ballet, jazz, ballroom, belly or pole dancing, or hula it is fun and you are learning.
I have seen 70+ to college kids at group ballroom lessons. The Woman's shoes rock and are the most comfortable heels I've ever worn. It is expensive, so try a $10 video first, or a free lesson. Ever see a buff hot straight guy do jazz hands?? If they can do that and look good, so can I!!
CHANGE IT UP!!! YOUR NEVER TOO OLD!! Give yourself positive talk!
I started my weight loss journey 12 months ago. Lost 31 lbs then hit a plateau. Have been at the same weight since Oct. 2010 or within 1-3 lbs. But now I feel positive. I am trying everything new, Zumba, ballroom dancing, even cross-fit, which I am now in training for ....I FEEL GREAT..I thought I was too old...soon to be 62. Next...I am going to try a spin class9
As I drive to and from work I dance to the music on the radio. It started with sucking in my stomach and stretching my back and has advanced to swaying, twisting and contracting my butt. The 45 minute drive doesn't seem so long, my back no longer hurts when I drive and I am wearing a smaller size pant.
One of the Spark aricles call this "car dancing" I am referring o it as "butt dancing".
