A Healthy Start to Summer

Starting the summer off healthy can be a challenge in itself.  We all know how difficult it can be to convince ourselves to visit the gym when summer fun is beckoning us to new adventures.

So how can we maintain a healthy life style while not missing out on the joys of summer? By becoming involved in activities that promote the enthusiasm and energy of the summer season- activities like dancing.

Dancing certainly serves as a wonderful social outlet, but perhaps dancing’s best kept secret is the multitude of benefits it offers to everyone at every stage of life.

A ‘weight-bearing’ exercise, dancing allows you to strengthen your muscles and joints by working at your body’s own level of fitness. The variety of muscles that you use while dancing makes it very effective for toning and increasing your coordination and balance.

The best part is, the list continues: from increased flexibility, reduced tension and heightened stamina, dancing provides a healthy approach to your overall well-being.

So as the summer starts to wind itself up, take time to make a healthy start: take time to dance.
