Why dancing is about the best thing you can do for your body

Amsterdam Dance Event 2018 is just around the corner, so that means a lot of partying next week, but also a lot of dancing. A little dance every once in a while isn’t bad for you – you probably knew that. But did you know dancing is actually one of the best things you can treat your body with? Long story short: you’re a super healthy mofo if you’re going to ADE. Good for you! Find out below why dancing is the best thing ever. After reading all of the perks you’ll probably want to go bust a move, so we’ve got a few OneFit dancing workout tips for you as well.

Dancing

Dancing makes you happy

They don’t say ‘dancing your troubles away’ for nothing. Dancing makes life more fun in general by all the serotonin and endorphins you’re setting free. The effect is even bigger when you make a social event out of your dance workout.

Dancing does it all

If you do a bit of dancing on the regular, than you already know its big benefits. Dancing has a great impact on your cardiovascular and muscular stamina, flexibility, posture and muscle strength. Like, whut?

Dancing trains all your muscles

You’re moving around a lot while you’re dancing, so is it a big surprise you’re basically training all your muscles during a dance workout? Not really. Does that make all the benefits of dancing less attractive? Negative again.

Dancing is not a workout

Well, it is, actually. But then again, it’s not. While you’re dancing you’re burning a shitload of calories, so you’re working out without a doubt, but somehow it just doesn’t feel like it. Why not? Because dancing is the perfect way to express yourself, to let go of everything and – most importantly – to have a whole lot of fun. The benefits of that? Chances are you’re more capable of sticking to your workout routine and the duration of your workout will probably be longer too.
