If you’re reading this article, it’s probably not the first time you have decided to get in better physical shape, improve your health or loose weight. Am I right?
If so, what stopped you from achieving the results you were striving for the last time? Most people who give up on their exercise routine and diet do so because they put way too strict demands on themselves from the beginning. You can live up to those demands the first week, month or maybe a few months, when you’re still inspired about your new healthy lifestyle. But in the long run you will need more and more motivation to get yourself off the couch and into the gym.
There are two things that women (and men for that matter) who manage to stick their regular exercise plans and healthy lifestyles have in common. The first is simply to have fun while doing it. Yes, it sounds almost too simple, but it is really true. People who are really into their sport and enjoy the exercise are multiple times less likely to quite. Those who enjoy playing football, riding horses or dancing usually stay slim and fit doing the thing they love.
The other aspect that becomes a game changer for people managing to successfully stay in shape and improve their lifestyle, is… They enjoy a sense of community with others on the same journey towards a lifestyle change.
For these two reasons, we promote getting fit using ballet. — But not in the sense of very strict ballet classes, only taking in young girls and pushing them really hard. A great ballet teacher makes dancing and exercise come together and be fun and inclusive, not strict and competitive.
The new fitness concept, BalletBeFit, offers fun but effective ballet workouts for women of all ages, shapes and sizes. The truth is, we can all benefit from the advantages of the core ballet exercises — especially those of us with still sitting 9-to-5 jobs. Sitting at a desk all day puts serious stress on our backs and necks for hours every day. That often causes serious back and neck pain as we get older (and often sooner than we think). Core ballet exercises helps strengthen the supporting muscles we need for keeping a good looking AND feeling posture. And an improved posture is key to treating or preventing back and neck pains.
For the same reason, ballet training dedicated to those of us getting a bit older can significantly help us maintain not just a slim figure, but also a straight youthful posture. So don’t worry if you have passed the window of opportunity to become a professional ballerina, the professional ballet instructors at BalletBeFit can help you get some of that grace regardless of your age!
