Health Benefits of Salsa

Post  tinashah on Thu Sep 04, 2008 6:24 pm

Look Better, Get Fit and Lose Weight

Salsa dancing is one of the best forms of exercise. Some of the health and fitness benefits of salsa dancing are: weight loss and muscle gain, boosting your physical endurance and range of motion all while learning the latest salsa dance steps.

Dancing salsa can burn up to 10 calories a minute, without harmful side effects caused by high impact exercises such as running. Dancing the night away can burn more calories per hour than riding a bike or swimming.

Salsa also helps to
* Reduce stress
* Increase energy
* Improve strength
* Increase muscle tone and coordination

Hi Anand

Its nice that salsa has a lot of health benefits to offer.....But I dance, purely coz I love salsa.....It gives me a big high..... Smile But, the one thing thats important is that you should have a good partner....u know...Coz as a girl, if you dont get a good lead, it can be really taxing... Smile

Plus, you rarely come to the class these days........ Sad
