It’s been decided. Y’all LOVE Dance Fit with our friend and dancing extraordinaire Lucy Carr! Besides being hugely fun, what’s so good about dance workouts? Whether you can twerk it with the best of them, or you’re rocking two left feet, these are just a handful of the benefits that this kind of sweat sesh can deliver.

Full Body Workout

Dance moves incorporate the shape of your entire body. You’ll be using big and small muscles you probably don’t work that often without even knowing, and burning calories like a machine!

More Flexibility, Less Stiffness

There are a lot of moves in Lucy’s routines that don’t mimic things that we do every day. Putting this fresh movement through your muscles and your joints is going to have wonderful impacts on your circulation, improve your flexibility and reduce body stiffness.

Brain Power

The brain is a muscle – a big one! And the more you work it by trying to remember dance moves in these routines, the stronger your mind will get. Coordination challenges improve our ability to focus and increase our memory capacity!

Serious Mood-Booster

When was the last time you burned it up on a dance floor (or in your own living room) without a smile on your face? Dance workouts have been shown to greatly reduce depression, increase confidence and self-image, and reduce stress! Go for it, dance your cares away and enjoy that buzz!
