Dance or exercise? We can say that pole dance is a fun and exciting mix of the two. Explaining in a very simple way, the practice consists of movements of force and balance around a vertical metal bar. Pole dancing requires a lot of the upper and lower body muscles, since all movement depends on the work of strength of the practitioner. This exercise also spends a lot of calories in one hour of class and, of a break, leaves you with a flat stomach and firmer arms, as well as ensuring flexibility for the body as a whole.
If you consider yourself an impatient and agitated person, maybe it's time to open your heart to powerjump, an exercise that combines low to high heels on a small trampoline, as if it were a joke on the trampoline.

An interesting alternative to swimming and other activities in the pool, the hydro bike (or hydrocycle) works as a kind of water aerobics, but with the advantage of submerged bicycles. Exercise is recommended for those seeking to improve posture and balance safely, as water reduces body weight by as much as 40%, and decreases impact on joints.

And the joke also helps you lose weight: an hour of exercise can burn up to 500 calories.
Another way out of sedentary lifestyle is to turn some current hobby into exercise with regular dedication and practice.

In an hour of class, you can lose up to a thousand calories. But the advantages of this modality go beyond weight loss and strengthening of the buttocks. As it is a dance loaded with sensuality, zumba still improves self-esteem and promotes social interaction among students, details that make all the difference to the feeling of well-being after practicing exercise.Boxing
For those looking for a more intense and radical option to exercise, the tip is to consider some form of fighting, as in the case of boxing, which works the entire body without rest. In this activity, the practitioner needs to perform many distinct movements, which improves the definition of arm and leg muscles. But boxing's greatest attractions are the results of physical exercise in the abdominal region, with guaranteed belly guarantee and defined and a thinner waist.
