How Good of a Workout is Core Salsa, Really?

Core Salsa is a unique form of exercise because it provides the heart-healthy benefits of an aerobic and core strengthening exercise while also allowing you to engage in a social activity. And whether you like Cha Cha, Merengue, Bachata or Salsa, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) says that dancing can:

  • Lower your risk of coronary heart disease
  • Decrease blood pressure
  • Help you manage your weight
  • Strengthen the bones of your legs and hips

Dancing is especially stimulating to the mind, and one 21-year study published in the New England Journal of Medicine even found dancing can reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia in the elderly.

"The value of maintaining rotational movement throughout the entire spinal column is essential for dancing with power and sensuality. Vitality is achieved when your core muscles are flexible and strong, thus allowing for the spinal cord to function correctly.

Core Salsa Training is a great way to help you achieve both. It is easy to learn and simple to practice anywhere. Practicing Core Salsa daily will restore flexibility and stability as well as enhance coordination for dancing and sports. Dance your body into shape!"
-- Adra Heese, Fitness Trainer, Dancer.

Not only is dancing an exceptional way to let loose and have fun, but it also provides some terrific benefits for your health. In fact, Mayo Clinic researchers reported that social dancing helps to:

  • Reduce stress
  • Increase energy
  • Improve strength
  • Increase muscle tone and coordination

In the study, participants over the age of 75 who engaged in reading, dancing and playing musical instruments and board games once a week had a 7 percent lower risk of dementia compared to those who did not. Those who engaged in these activities at least 11 days a month had a 63 percent lower risk!

Interestingly, dancing was the only physical activity out of 11 in the study that was associated with a lower risk of dementia. Said Joe Verghese, a neurologist at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and a lead researcher of the study, "This is perhaps because dance music engages the dancer's mind."

Verghese says dancing may be a triple benefit for the brain. Not only does the physical aspect of dancing increase blood flow to the brain, but also the social aspect of the activity leads to less stress, depression and loneliness. Further, dancing requires memorizing steps and working with a partner, both of which provide mental challenges that are crucial for brain health.

"I started Master Moves for one reason only, because I wanted to learn how to dance Salsa. Being from North America, I never learner how to move my hips until I started to exercise with Master Moves.

I learned from dancing with Oswaldo how important it's to move my hips while keeping good body posture… It gives you beauty and presence!"
