Did you know that adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity each week? And according to some research, only 21 % of adults meet those guidelines. Pretty sad, right?
Spending too much time on our bums can severely affect our health. A sedentary lifestyle can contribute to obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and even to some types of cancer. It can also reduce metabolism and impair our body’s ability to regulate blood sugar. Nobody wants that, right? And what’s more, a sedentary lifestyle also negatively impacts our mental health and increases the risk for depression.
We all know that a sedentary lifestyle is not doing us any good. However, we still find it hard to move our beautiful bodies more regularly.
If you haven’t moved your body as much as you should, this post may encourage you to make a change. You may have already tried different sports activities then quit after some time, but I’m not here to guess what the reason was.
I’m here today to help give you some motivation, and encouragement to take responsibility for your health and overall well-being. Moving your body on a regular basis can be a truly life-changing thing!
Have you tried pole dancing? No? Well, here’s why you should…
If you’re one of those people who’ve tried almost all the sports activities and quit every single time, maybe this year you can try just one more thing … Pole dancing.
From my own experience, you will definitely want to quit, it’s not just rainbows and unicorns, sorry, but if you persist a little bit longer then you’ll be hooked. We guarantee you that. After practising it for some time, pole dance can become a pretty addictive thing (in a positive way).
It’s a fantastic way to move your body. After every practice, you’re gonna feel amazing – sweaty, sore and a little bit out of breath. Your body will be flooded with endorphins, making you feel really good. This fantastic sports activity is also good for your heart as it promotes your body’s blood flow, which is vital for women with a mainly sedentary lifestyle.
Your body will burn lots of calories. With time you will become stronger and more flexible. Another great ‘side effect’ of regular pole dancing is an enormous boost of self-confidence.
And a ‘bonus’ positive thing about practising pole dance is also an amazing community.You’ll meet many fabulous people who will support you and cheer for you!
By giving a pole dance a chance, your life will become better. And that’s what it’s all about, right?
