Fitness has become a huge part of my life recently. I aim to work out 4-5 times a week, simply because it makes me happy and feel great about myself for the rest of the day.
For the month of February, it’s been so cold that even the 60 second run down to my apartment gym sounds miserable. So instead, I’ve taken to doing all of my workouts in my bedroom!
A specific genre of workouts that I’ve fallen in love with recently are dance workouts. I find all my workouts on YouTube, and the channel I’ve found with the best dance workout videos is Dance Fitness with Jessica. She has tons of songs from all different genres, so it wasn’t hard for me to compile my own playlist full of songs I like. I’m not a great dancer, but in the comfort of my own bedroom it’s fun and gets me active.
If Dance Fitness with Jessica isn’t your style, then I recommend looking up Just Dance playlists on YouTube- seriously. I added a few of my favorite #throwbacks from Just Dance 2/3 to my workout playlist and cycle through them occasionally. They’re super easy to follow along and achievable for people of any skill level! I have very little coordination, but can still pull them off pretty well.
My favorite throwbacks from the Just Dance era that I enjoy incorporating into my workout routine are:
- …Baby One More Time – Britney Spears
- When I Grow Up – The Pussycat Dolls
- Girlfriend – Avril Lavigne
- Rasputin – Boney M. (a true bop)
Dance fitness has become such a fun way to get my body moving without it feeling like typical cardio! And there’s way more resources out there than the ones I mentioned, so if dance fitness interests you, there’s more out there than just these options.
If you give this workout style a try, be sure to let me know what you think!
