Is there anybody out there who doesn’t want to look and feel great? Consistent and effective exercise is important for a good quality of life, but in this day and age it can be hard to keep in shape. We’re all so busy, and when we finally get a little bit of downtime who really wants to jog, or workout at the gym?

When considering different forms of exercise, people often overlook dance. This is because dance doesn’t fit the mold of what exercise is “supposed” to be. To most people, exercise is synonymous with hard work—after all, no pain, no gain, right? They think that exercise has to be some kind of chore and that they can’t possibly have fun while getting in shape.

Luckily, these people are dead wrong. Dance is one of the oldest forms of exercise known to man, and that’s because it’s both effective as a way to keep in shape but also so darn fun. If you’ve been looking for a way to finally get into shape or even just a way to invigorate a stale exercise routine, maybe salsa dancing is right for you.

Salsa is fast-paced and full of energy. You’ll burn calories and tone muscle as if you had hit the gym, but instead of dreading your workouts you’ll look forward to them. Your exercise won’t be something you have to drag through before you can finally relax, rather your exercise routine will be the most exciting part of your day! When you lay down in bed at night your muscles will feel tired but relaxed, and you’ll wake up in the morning with more energy, ready to face the day head on.

Maybe this sounds too good to be true, but this is the experience that more and more amateur and expert salsa dancers alike are having as the dance’s popularity continues to grow. Is salsa dancing for weight loss and exercise right for you? There’s only one way to find out!
