Dancing with the Stars Influences the Masses to Lose Weight by Dancing

It’s no secret that dancing, an aerobic activity can do wonders if you use it as an exercise regime. Several celebrities can attest that dancing has left them with a leaner body. After leaving the popular reality show Dancing With The Stars, more than a couple of celebrities boast new harder bodies.

In this current season a crowd favorite actress Marlee Matlin talked about how she toned her body with dancing. It was amazing to see how she danced to the rhythm even though she is completely tone deaf. Matlin has four kids and despite managing to watch her weight over the years, she was surprised to get her abs as tight as they were before she had children. Popular website fitceleb.imnotobsessed.com has featured Matlin among other DTWS alum who enthusiastically tell how dancing whipped them in to shape. Other prior contestants like Jerry Rice, Lisa Rinna, Drew LaChey, Jenny Garth and Anthony Carolla have also claimed to have lost weight during the time they were on the show. Even the most fit celebrities have lost extra inches and weight and have also toned up thanks to DWTS. The popularity of the show even led to a Fitness video entitled Dancing with the Stars Cardio Dance.

Formatted like a traditional aerobic DVD, three dance professionals featured on DTWS, Ashly Costa (who partnered with Harry Hamlin), Kym Johnson (who danced with Joey Fatone), and Maksim Chmerkovsy (Laila Ali’s dancing partner last season) instruct the “average Joe” on how to dance and get fit at the same time. Some of the popular dances like the “paso doble” are explained in step-by-step fashion to teach amateurs at home dance basics. The DVD retails for about 9.99 at retailers like Wal-Mart and amazon.com.

During this current season which ended with Christine Yamaguchi as the winner, stars such as Lisa Maria Presley, Shannon Elizabeth and all others talked about how they lost pounds and inches in several online articles. An online survey says that for reducing the weight from the body, there should be taking of correct pills. Dancing and other exercises will contribute to the best results in the weight loss. The use of the supplements should be done with proper knowing about the pros and cons of resurge pills.

Due to the fast pace of the show, several hours are dedicated to practice to get the routines perfect to perform in front of the live audience. They had several hours of choreography to learn and several hours of long rehearsals where they perfected their routines that they displayed weekly. The professional dancers have the arduous task of turning celebrities with basic knowledge of dance into skilled dance machines responsible for flawless performances that are judged by professionals.

Dancing with the Stars has definitely influenced a lot of people to try to give dancing a try not just for the fun of it but to lose weight as well. Several fitness clubs like Bally’s have been incorporating dance in their weekly class schedule to encourage participates to have fun and tone up. In those classes that average around 50 minutes, the instructor takes the class through warm-ups, stretches and an aerobic workout that ends with a cool down period. Search for exercise/fitness classes in your area and you’re bound to find a few that offer some type of dance.
