The Pros and Cons of Bootcamp Workouts and Dance Fitness
Tracey, what’s the hottest, healthiest “tried and true” fitness trend out there today?
Bootcamp workoutss, because they’re a combination of many different fitness elements that keep the body challenged and create amazing results. Bootcamp exercise is a total body workout with cardio intervals.
The Pros of Bootcamp Workouts
The advantages for exercisers who are short on time is that they get to build muscle mass with calisthenics using their own body weight and burn fat from cardio army style drills — all in one workout! Bootcamp workouts are still hot and healthy because many gyms still hold different types of boot camp classes – and many studios run regular six week session boot camps. People like to compete against each other in bootcamp workouts, which makes them exercise harder and have fun while they work out.
The Cons of Bootcamp Workouts
Bootcamp workouts can be a little too repetitive for some people, especially if they like choreographed steps. It maybe too tough for a beginner starting back in to exercises. Bootcamp workouts exercise the total body in a way you probably would not push yourself on your own. The steps are easy to memorize, but are of a high intensity.

Dance fitness, such as jazz or any kind of dance in general. With “Dancing With the Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance” being so popular, men and women are becoming more interested in dance fitness. It’s fun, exciting, very invigorating and extremely addictive – you leave the class on a high! Dance fitness gives people a feeling of accomplishment, especially when they finally master a small routine and perform it well. Dancing works the whole body – especially the core and the legs.
The Pros of Dance Fitness
You’re moving your body in all different directions; you don’t even realize your exercising because it’s so much fun. Also, it’s a great activity do with your partner or friends. Dance fitness releases stress – especially with all the laughter after you start moving your hips!
The Cons of Dance Fitness
If you’re not coordinated, dance fitness can be very frustrating. You have to actually learn the steps, which might not make it a very good workout for you.
