So, if you want to spice up your at-home workouts it’s high time you take up dance fitness. The beauty of these workouts is not only that they are fun, but also that they can hard, if not harder than the regular body-weight workouts! However, there are a number of new dance workouts out there, and finding the best ones can be quite daunting. But, don’t fret! We’re here to help. Here’s a list of our top 5 dance fitness routines, you are bound to enjoy!

However, before we start allow us to make the following recommendation. If you want to lose weight, get lean, and overall be a healthy person hiring a fitness trainer Dubai and working out through dance fitness is not enough. You actually need to put in the work in the kitchen, as well. You see, while dance fitness is a great way to burn calories if you want to get in shape that you dream of you definitely need to take control of your diet. However, we understand that finding the right diet for you can be quite daunting, especially in today’s day and age. It seems like every two months or so, a new diet comes up with roaring promises. And, to be completely honest, keeping track of what you should be eating can be quite disheartening.

The perfect diet for your dance workouts

However, dieting shouldn’t be this super complex subject. In fact, is pretty simple. Eat fewer calories than you need, and you’ll lose weight. Eat more, and you’ll gain fat. Every diet under the sun lies on this core principle. The Paleo diet, the Keto diet, even the 9/10 diet all rely on this simple fact. However, choosing which one to adhere to is a thing of personal preference. Some diets are easier than others. So experiment, find out what fits for you.

Or, if you want to take the guesswork out of dieting we recommend that you hire a DubaiPT. We are a host that can provide you with the professionals who’ve dedicated their entire life in pursuit of making you live a healthier life. From reading all the necessary science on nutrition and exercise to having the “on hands” experience with working with all sorts of different clients that have separate goals.


Let’s be frank. Basically, any dancing will get your blood flowing and will help you lose calories along the way. Dancing is an activity, and so is walking, biking, hiking, etc. All those activities will help you lose calories. However, it’s no secret that some of those activities are better than others in helping you lose weight, right? For example, walking for 30 minutes is not the same as dancing for 30 minutes. By that same notion, not every dancing activity is created equal. Some are better at helping you lose fat than others. That’s exactly where Zumba dance comes into play. You see, Zumba is a workout program created at the beginning of the 1990s by a Brazilian dancer and choreographer Claudia Leitte, with one sole purpose in mind – to help people lose weight, get lean and make them feel good through dance.

Different Zumba workouts

Essentially, every Zumba workout consists of sixteen core steps with four basic rhythmsreggaeton, merengue, salsa, and cumbia. A combination of all of these rhythms and steps allows you to target specific muscle groups and burn fat. However, when you combine all those different rhythms and steps you can get countless different variations of workouts. Add a toning stick to the mix and you got yourself endless different options. However, while there are endless workouts you can do, finding the perfect ones for you can be quite hard to do. So, let us help you with that. Without further adieu, here are our top 5 picks of dance fitness routines.
