Why Afrobeats Fused with Exercises Equal Workouts that Deliver Results
Every woman wants to look trim and fit, especially when they have a special occasion or wedding coming up. Sadly, we all hate that losing weight is involves hard work and most exercises are boring. The good news is that there’s another way that works – Afrobeats Dance Workout or simply Danc-ercise (dance + exercise)! Afrobeat music is fun and danceable and when incorporated with target exercises, it all makes working out to lose weight so much fun. It’s called Dancercize (short for Dance-exercise). With dancing, exercising feels so much fun and delivers tons of health benefits.
If the usual “serious-type-exercises” are boring to you, then you’ll love dance workouts. And, if your feet can’t stay quiet at the sound of Naija or African music, then you’ll love to kill two birds with one stone. What do I mean by that? I mean – you’ll dance to the songs you always like, and you’ll also lose weight.
Talk about exercising WITHOUT really thinking that you’re working out. Everything is fun – just groove to Kukere or Azonto and burn those fats. To try more dance exercises, buy yourself a Zumba workout dvd – try the Salsa and a host other dance moves and dance off the pounds of fat.
4 Benefits of Dance Exercising (aka Afro-Dance Workouts)
Here are 4 good reasons to start dance workouts that you’d be crazy not to add dancing to your cardio exercise routine:
#1. You Will Work Your Whole Body: You need lean, buff arms to look glam in your wedding gown, and dance workouts are a fun way to work out your thighs, arms, abs, in fact, you will trim and tone your whole body.

#2. You will Burn Plenty of Fat: Cardio exercises like dance workouts will make you burn lots of fat calories, while increasing your metabolism. African dance makes you move every part of your body, hence exercising them as you do – an excellent way to tone those fat, water-water, flabby arms or the fat tyre-like belly, and as you shake your butt while dancing, you’re closer to getting a nice, rounded Brazilian booty.
#3. It’s Fun: Fun and danceable songs like Azonto, Skelewu, and Kukere are a pleasure to workout with because they actually make you want to move your body. It’s hard to sit down when sweet African or Naija beats are playing.
#4. You Can Dance Freestyle: If you use African or Nigerian music during your dance workout, the moves are not monotonous. As you know, African dance is freestyling, so that you don’t have to be an expert at a certain dance style to enjoy the workout – even old school dance moves fit, a note for the elderly ones.
Spice up your exercise routine with Kukere and Azonto dance music. But, let me warn you – it can be addictive, but this kind of addiction does not harm; instead, you’ll get away with a fab, toned, lean and trim body – the best wedding gift you can give to yourself (for brides-to-be and grooms too). So, what are you waiting for? Watch the above workout videos again and start shaking and whining your body and booty.
