Gratuitous Dancing

Ok folks! Life is NOT like High School Musical... unfortunately. People do not break out in song and dance at pivotal moments throughout their day. That is unfortunate too because song and dance is so good for the soul. Fortunately, we DO have workout DVD's. I hate that we call them that. While most do a great job of working up a sweat, some DVD's are more like a dance party. Popping in certain DVDs elicits gratuitous dancing. And when you're done, you HAVE gotten a great workout, your energy is heightened and your spirit soars. I have found one such gold mine and it can be found at So far I have Slim in Six, Turbo Jam and Hip Hop Abs. I love them all! I really think that has hit the jackpot... they seem to be one of the few fitness companies to actually understand that if you're REALLY having fun, you will stick with it... and it really is all about the instructor. You just cannot find the caliber of instructors like you find at These people draw you in to the workout with their encouragement and they're amazingly fun personalities. Beachbody has really honed in on bringing the instructors who speak through the camera instead of at the camera and invite you into their world for brief (I'm currently still doing the 20 minute routines) segments of gratuitous dancing. I am just amazingly blown away. I say, "Anything that gets me in touch with my inner seven year old... bring it on!!!" And these DVDs certainly do the trick!

I'm also a beachbody fan! I have Power 90, Hip Hop Abs, Turbo Jam and I just got ChaLEAN extreme. I'm going to start the ChaLEAN program on Monday
