Fitness Benefits, Ballroom Dancing
We only need to tune in to the popular show which features such to view first-hand the benefits of this fun activity. The top health benefits include the following:
Weight Loss Accomplishments
All too often the pre-dieter is focused on losing fat and nothing more. And yes - just by dropping pounds and accomplishing nothing further in the area of fitness, the rewards are fabulous.
They include more stable blood pressure readings, more likely than not a drop in negative serum blood cholesterol readings, relief from joint pain - particularly in the knee, neck and back areas.
Not having to pack around those extra pounds all day suddenly relieves the stress on the body's skeletal system.
In addition, that nagging heartburn and other digestive woes tend to fade more often than not with the lost weight. And with a lighter body, one is naturally lighter on their feet - which only adds skill to the dancing aspect.
Balance and Posture Improved
Honing our balancing skills makes us better in all of the activities that we perform amid everyday life. It can also improve athletic skills. And while most younger individuals are unconcerned about balance issues - this is a chief concern with many seniors. Improving balance can assist in preventing accidents in and out of the home. And ballroom dancing is a great way to assist in improving such.
In addition, participants in this activity will learn how to improve posture which in turn also improves balance.
Even if losing pounds isn't part of the fitness equation - this activity certainly assists in improving one's self esteem. While the thinner dancer is eye-catching to watch, the most plump of such can be equally entertaining. This is one activity were gracefulness can be learned and enjoyed by all participants.
As to self confidence, there are defining differences in the individual - both males and females, when they go from fat to a thinner state. Much of the time their mannerisms do a 180 degree turn. Table manners improve, posture improves and the feeling of self-worth and self-accomplishment also increases.
Energy Level Increases, Skeletal System Strengthens
Stamina, endurance and energy levels will increase and only grow stronger as time passes and dancing skills increase. When energy levels increase, the metabolic burn follows suit - which simply means that the body burns calories at a faster rate. In addition, muscles are strengthened along with the bones which actually grow a tab larger. This activity is excellent for those suffering from certain bone related issues
The Caloric Burn
A 150 pound individual will burn about 75 calories with just 15 minutes of ballroom dancing. If the activity continues for an hour, they will have burned about 300 calories. That's enough energy to melt away about one-tenth of a pound of body weight.
