SheFinds Fitness Week: Private Dancer

January 11, 2007 by SheFindsGenevieve

Goal: Shake my groove thing – at home.

The Plan: After trying out Jazzercise, hip-hip Pilates, and yoga studios, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m not cut out to sweat in front of others. Instead, I’m going to dance it out at home, and with zero gym space in my apartment, I’ll have to exercise in my favorite place: right in front of the TV.

I’ll probably start slow, with some yoga that works on building both flexibility and muscle strength, two things I need after a holiday season spent exercising my couch-sitting skills. When I feel ready to take the plunge, I’ll go for a more intense routine that will have me pretzel-bendy in no time.

When I can touch my toes and I’m getting bored of all that calming breathing, I’ll switch tracks for something a little more upbeat. A little bellydance is way more fun than a series of stretches, and watching all those spandex covered taut tummies will definitely keep me motivated. With any luck, I’ll start developing tone in my arms and my abs, and if I do it right I’ll be having too much fun to notice that muscles are burning.

Price: $12-35
