Dancing Burns Nearly as Many Calories as an Exruciating Run
New York, NY February 27, 2011
For those who have been wondering how many calories a night of social dancing burns, a new calorie counter is available at LearnClubDance.com. Whether it is a high impact (indoor) aeoribic activity for those cold winter months, or a fun and exciting alternative to jogging, those serious about their fitness can look to dancing as a means of burning just as many calories.
According to the calorie counter, dancing to three of your favorite hip hop songs will result in about 100 calories burned! Jogging at a fast 8 miles per hour will burn the same amount of calories in the same amount of time as dancing to your favorite tunes. We'll leave it up to you to decide which one is more fun.
LearnclubDance.com sells instructional dance videos that teach practical dance moves to average people who would rather learn how to dance for practical social situations than learn complicated and choreographed routines. Even though most of the videos at Learn Club Dance are not explicitly marketed as workout videos, research has found that each disc can burn up to 500 calories.
This review on Amazon says, "My legs were sore the next day. Totally should be double marketed as a workout video. Great moves, great narration too. Highly recommended."###
