Ok, so maybe dance for fitness isn’t for everyone, but, it is definitely a great option! As I always say, JUST START MOVING! Dancing is a great core workout! Movement is such a huge gift. We are blessed with the ability to move. There is complete freedom in being able to move, and have flexibility. As we age, this becomes much more of a concern. Senior fitness is extremely important because losing mobility, and losing our ability to move is the biggest stress in growing old. It takes away our freedom to be independent. As we are unable to do certain movements, we begin to rely on others for basic needs.
Many people don’t think about this, but, we must start thinking about it as early as age 25. By age 40, we are naturally declining in muscle. We actually want to build muscle. But, if you can find something that you love doing movement wise, it’s a great way to get in your workout routines. If you have a passion for something, like boxing, dancing, or learning some new movements, it’s truly a great way to get your fitness in everyday.
I love this guy! He is just dancing. He’s free, he’s beautiful, and he’s having a good time. Even he isn’t afraid to get moving!
