How Dancing and Music Improved My Health

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am a classical girl through and through. I dress in classical pieces, I play classic music and I like to behave as close as I can to Audrey Hepburn. But then my friends know another side of me. That being my country bumpkin, Taylor Swift loving and cowboy boots wearing self. I sometimes like to throw on a plaid shirt and jeans and bust out my guitar and play some good old fashioned country music.

When I recently went through a bad break-up, I turned to food as a comfort and put on 20 pounds in 6 weeks. I felt miserable and was not even playing piano or guitar anymore. But I then decided I needed to turn my comfort from food into music and dance.  I started going country dancing at my local community center and found it chalk full of senior citizens and other singles just wanting to let loose and have fun.  I regularly dance with Harold and he always saves the last dance for me. I started losing weight steadily and was reaching for the cookie jar less and less.

I was then overwhelmed when I found out about a new country workout dance program called Country Heat.  Designed by popular celebrity fitness trainer Autumn Calabrese, this is a high-intensity but low impact workout series with 6 different dance videos that helps you burn calories while listening to amazing and popular country music tunes.  There is something about this type of music that soothes a broken heart and it has certainly worked for me.  I recommend turning to music to help you heal whatever you need to heal from and put down the chocolate bar. Help yourself shape a new body you can be proud of and feel good about, rather than filling your body with sugar and junk that will just make you feel lethargic.

If you invest in a program like Country Heat or any other dance workout video, you won’t even feel like you are exercising. Rather, it will feel like a treat and doing something special just for you. The rhythm and beat are fantastic and will get your whole body moving, helping you learn to love yourself and your body as you get in the best shape of your life.  It also includes a nutrition and eating plan so you won’t feel lost while both dieting and exercising.  Following a proven formula will make weight loss painless and even simple.
