Switch Up Your Fitness Routine With This Heart-Pounding Hip-Hop Workout

Do you dread going to the gym? You’re not alone. For many women, just the thought of getting on the treadmill feels like a total drag, while a stint on the elliptical is to be avoided at all costs. If you’re in the “I’d rather not” camp when it comes to the standard ways to sweat it out, consider this quick (but still challenging) hip-hop dance workout.

For anyone looking to say “see ya later” to the stationary bike and treadmill, this dance cardio workout with Ailey Ext teacher TweetBoogie is a good place to start. Adding variety to your fitness routine can help you stick to your goals, and this workout is a fun way to combine cardio with strength training. While hip-hop dance may seem a little intimidating at first (after all, not everyone is a natural dancer), it’s actually very accessible, especially when broken down into simple moves.

Another reason to get your heart rate up with this routine? You’ll torch more than 400 calories in just one hour of dancing (in other words, more than you would from jogging!).
