3 Fun Ways to Lose a Little Weight
By Genevieve Cunningham
Losing weight. If this goal sounds familiar, you’re in good company. Almost everyone has the desire to drop a few pounds. It makes us look and feel better, and gives us a confidence boost that can’t be beat. But the harsh truth is that losing weight is hard! If you would like to drop a few pounds, take a look at these fun ways to slim down and feel your best.
It might sound like something your mother used to talk about or something from an old 1980s movie, but the truth is that aerobics is alive and well. There are multiple kinds of aerobics to choose from -- step, power pump, floor, dance -- each with their own unique flair. The key to making aerobics fun as well as effective is to find the type and teacher that you like. Shop around a little until you find the right fit. Once you’ve found the right class, losing weight through aerobics can be a lot of fun.
If aerobics doesn’t sound like your thing, why not get straight to the fun right on the dance floor? Even if you’re not a trained dancer, dancing is so much fun. Just get out there, turn on some music you enjoy, and bust a move. If you’re a bit apprehensive, this can also be done in the comfort of your own home. Dancing is a great workout, so get moving to burn some calories and lose some weight while having the time of your life.
If both of the above options sounds like fun, why not combine them? Check out your local gym for a zumba class. This form of exercise is like a cross between aerobics and dance. It requires a lot of hip movement and a lot of ab work, but it’s an incredibly fun way to get sweating. If you’re a little nervous about doing this in front of people, rest assured that everyone else in the room feels the same way. So relax, feel the music, and have a blast.
Losing weight is a tough job, but it can be a lot of fun if you have the right tools. Use these fun workouts to get moving in the right direction. Through a little fun and a little dedication, you may find the body of your dreams waiting just around the corner.
