As we enter the holiday season, a new exercise workout routine is catching on across the country and claims to help shake those added holiday pounds right off your body. The name is “Hot Hula fitness”, and its creator Anna-Rita Sloss describes it as a merging of traditional and modern dance moves, set to the rhythm of Tahitian Drums, funky Reggae music, and Hip-Hop, which creates a unique way to experience an enjoyable and effective workout.
The HOT HULA exercise workout routine is a “total body” dance workout inspired by the dances of the Pacific Islands which isolates your larger muscle groups, increasing strength and definition to your core with specific emphasis on the abs, glutes, quads and arms. All ages and fitness levels can enjoy this physical exercise workout routine.
One of the keys to the success of Hot Hula fitness or any exercise workout routine for that matter is that it is fun for the participants. The fitness industry is constantly trying to dream up something new to keep boredom down. Hot Hula fitness is one of those innovations proving that point. Another advantage is that no equipment is needed, not even shoes!
Two of the major reasons most people don’t stick to an exercise workout routine for the long term are:
1. It takes too much time
2. It’s too hard
Rather than punishing your body and testing your pain threshold like so many other programs do, this exercise workout routine is disguised in dance moves with the added benefit of group participation for support and socializing. These added features will provide motivation for regular participation when the body is a little sore in the beginning or other life activities make it inconvenient to go.
Another important part of the social aspect is that you can observe the progress of others and develop a feeling of community with the group as you all work towards a common goal, fitness and weight loss. It is always much easier to follow a regular exercise workout routine when you can tap into the energy and the enthusiasm of a group rather than having to supply it all by yourself.
The Hot Hula exercise workout routine is also available on DVD so when you can’t make it to the workout facility or health club, you can maintain your workout regimen. However, as mentioned above, try to only do this as an addition, not as a replacement.
