The Holiday season is a serious threat to your waistline. We admit it; we’re guilty of encouraging you to indulge in desserts, chocolates, cupcakes, whole cakes, and all sorts of splendid carbs. We’ve also encouraged you to get puppies, but FYI: they’re calorie-free unless you eat them.
That’s why they let me recycle vintage Fitness Friday posts. This one’s from 2010, and it still works and twerks:

FITNESS FRIDAY: CLUB CARDIO
Maybe you didn’t make it to the gym this Fitness Friday, but you can still get your cardio on when you hit the club tonight. Health club? Night club? Take your pick! Did you know that dancing burns up to 300 calories per hour? True story! Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your crunk choreography!
- Suck it in; keeping your stomach pulled inward while you dance will actually tone and tighten your core.
- Do some leg work! Don’t just lean back all night, get your feet moving! Even a basic step-touch will help define your calves and thighs.
- If you decide to have a drink, stick to cocktails that have only one mixer, preferably club soda which, unlike tonic water, has no calories.
- A mad dash to the dollar menu might be your typical 2am ritual, but if you plan ahead, you can enjoy a healthier snack on the ride home
Now you can really work it out on the dance floor! Be safe and have a great weekend!
