Dancing is so much fun and whether you enjoy a slow, Ballroom dance or a nightclub packed with people all moving to heart-pumping techno, as long as you are moving, it really does not matter what type of dance or music. The whole idea is to move your body. Dancing has long been recommended as an avenue to fitness.
Tip: Belly Dancing is an excellent workout for your stomach, waist and hips ladies!
If you have a VCR or DVD, rather than just using it for your favorite comedy or action-packed movie, try sticking in some good workout tapes. Even taking 15 minutes every day to work out will get you started. Try that for two weeks and you will be surprised at results. Once you see that 15 minutes a day makes a difference, you will be encouraged to increase time spent.
And one of my personal favorites... Yardwork!
Whether you're pulling weeds, planting flowers, mowing grass or chopping wood: All of these activities can help you get into better shape. Don't cheat yourself though. Using a riding mower to cut grass won't help you use muscles or get your blood pumping ;)
So go out and get active, have fun, and work on getting or staying fit too!
