A unique and innovative fitness programme by Reema Sarin has helped many fitness freaks to keep fit while dancing to the tunes of groovy Bollywood music.
This one is for all who wish to flaunt the curvy figure without doing any rigorous exercise. Bollyfit, a unique and innovative way to burn those extra calories has helped several people to stay fit.
The fitness dance workshop is one of the latest concepts that is taking both, fitness and dancing to a completely new level as it talks about a totally new concept, internationally called 'fitness dancing'. The programme is one of its kind that has a fusion of Bollywood, jazz and funk dance steps with international dance aerobics, step dance aerobics and cardio kick-boxing moves to Bollywood music at 140 beats per minute (bpms)!
Explains Reema Sarin, Fitness Dancer, Choreographer and the person behind Bollyfit, "The programme is not just about losing weight, it's about keeping fit, improving stamina, endurance, strength and leading a high-energy life."
The USP of the Bollyfit programme is, that the warm-up exercises consist of energetic Bollywood dance moves as opposed to the regular aerobic warm-up exercises. The cool down routine also consists of Bollywood dance moves, which relax every part of your body. So in a regular aerobic class you burn about 200-250 calories, but in a basic Bollyfit class you burn from 300 to 400 calories.
The calorie burning exercises ensure that you get a real workout without feeling the burden of exercise. The vigorous dance moves work out each and every muscle in your body in a very distinct way, giving you a well-balanced full body workout, which helps you de-stress and unwind as you workout.
Reema further informs about the pattern of workout, "Each workout session lasts for about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes and is broken into certain sections."
- 10 min: Stretching & Bollyfit dance Warm-up
- 20 - 30 min: Bollyfit dance workout (depending on the level of the class, e.g. whether beginner, intermediate or advanced)
- 10 min: Bollyfit dance Cool down & Arms workout
- 10 min: Body Conditioning exercises and stretching
- 10 min: Floor workout - ABT (Abs, Buttocks, Thighs)
- 5 min: Breathing & Relaxing exercises
The motive behind combining the dance moves and aerobics is that the fitness dance workout should be taught without feeling the burden of exercise. Under the programme the students are taught advanced calorie burning exercises.
With the right kind of food intake, the programme works wonders for all who wish to flaunt the curvy figure.
