Here are some free taster videos from our online class archives for you to slot into your day. Each video is on average 5 minutes long, so you can easily make time first thing in the morning, on your lunch break, in the evening, or even while taking a break from your desk, just to move around for a few minutes. You can mix and match the routines to put together a full workout, just remember to add a warm up and cool down.
A key focus for ‘en Joy dance fitness is encouraging people to move more, particularly from mid-life onwards. As we get older, the effects of inactivity and sedentary lifestyles become more apparent. Bone density and muscle mass decrease, balance and flexibility decline and we need to continue to be active in order to prolong a good level of mobility and ultimately retain our quality of life and general health and wellbeing.
While it’s ideal to get the recommended 30 minutes of exercise per day / 5 times a week, it’s also important to move around more during the remainder of the day, rather than just doing your 30mins then sitting down for the rest of the day. Even if that 30 minutes is moderate – vigorous exercise. Of course, getting your recommended daily dose of exercise is great, but it’s even better to keep your body active throughout the day. Try to take regular breaks from whatever you are doing; if you’re sitting hunched over a desk for most of the day, make sure you regularly get up, move around and stretch.
