Do you Love to Dance?

Tired of squats, lunges, push-ups, and boring cardio?

Many people are tired of doing the typical squats, lunges and push-ups….I personally love them and gravitate toward strength training with weights either at home or at the gym….that may be because for the last 30 years, I have been using strength training for my track and field competitions…you love what you know and what you are best at, right?  I love feeling strong and strength training also enables me to maintain my weight and keeps me free from injuries – especially important as I age.

Now, with all that being said, I am lacking in other areas in my life!  I do not have enough creative juices flowing.  I used to love to draw and spent many hours as a kid with a paper and colored pens drawing cartoon characters.  I became quite good and thought I wanted to become an animator at one time until my mom (who worked at Disney and worked directly with animators), discouraged me from pursuing animation as a career because she thought they were over-worked and underpaid.  I am sure that she was right, especially when they were working on a big project like Pocahontas, which was what I was obsessed with back then.  I sometimes regret that I didn’t pursue art, because if you find work that you love, you don’t even work….there is no difference between work and the joy of life.   I am fortunate that I did eventually find my dream job, which is doing what I am doing now….helping people become healthier, stronger and even financially more stable!

Another area that I was lacking in was dancing (and singing for that matter).  I didn’t like to dance because I didn’t know how to dance and I was worried what people would think of me because –  you know they were all looking right at me, RIGHT?  I also could not carry a tune and all through my 12 years of catholic school, I never sang louder than just under my breath…most of the time I did the lip-syncing thing in church.  Regarding dancing….in high school, I was a wall flower, hoping that nobody would ask me to dance and if I did go on the dance floor, it was with a bunch of people and I made sure I was on the inside of the pack so nobody could see me.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved to dance and sing….just not in front of anyone!!!  As I grew older and started to drink alcohol socially, I wouldn’t dance unless I was tipsy…who is with me on this one?  The final straw was when my husband, Michael and I went to a neighborhood party and I was pressured to dance but I said I needed to drink in order to dance….well, my friends took care of that….they poured me more and more drinks and by the end of the night, I had to be driven the 2 blocks home.  I swore that never again will I need to be drunk or tipsy in order to get out on the dance floor.

I never had the opportunity to learn how to dance.  I was always too busy or too embarrassed to take a class.  I always had so much respect when I would watch others dance…especially really talented dancers… looked like so much FUN!  Well, the opportunity is HERE NOW!  Since I work with Beachbody, I have opportunities to win a free trips for doing well in my home-based business.  This year, I earned a trip to an all-inclusive resort in Cancun, Mexico for 2.  We decided to take our kids with us because last year when we went on our Success Club trip on a cruise to Cozumel and Grand Cayman, we left the kids with Grammy Margaret and we felt they would have a blast at the resort!  On every Success Club trip, we have the pleasure to workout to live workouts with celebrity trainers, such as Shaun T, Tony Horton and Autumn Calabrese.  We were able to catch Shaun T’s workout in which he led us through some of his Insanity Max:30 routine but at the end, he showed us a few dance moves that will be in the NEW DANCE WORKOUT that he designed!  I said to myself….”OK, here is my chance to finally learn how to dance and have fun doing it!”

Shaun T (professional choreographer and dancer & former track & field athlete) teaches the dance moves to hot new music step-by-step and builds them into a full dance combo.  You can do this in the privacy of your own home so nobody can see you dance until you are confident you know the moves and then you can go out dancing with your friends and BUST out some moves!   You’ll be so focused on mastering the moves that for 35–40 minutes,  you’ll forget you’re actually burning fat and calories, and getting in the best shape of your life.

I am done with worrying what people think and heck, this is my job!  How much fun is it to go to work and workout and, learn how to dance at the same time?  I am ready to step outside my comfort zone and put my heart and soul into this.   Are YOU?

“Don’t say you can’t dance…because anyone can dance…” —Shaun T
