Find the core
of your rhythm
– with Jennie Widegren

Rhythm is all you need. Almost. As always when dancing is involved – it’ll take some core. To get the most out of your 2013 workouts you’ll need to build core strength. The strength that lets you perform and enjoy to your full potential. We’ve covered some of the insights that’ll get you on track. Let the year of You begin.

The Tones of Fitness

It’s 2013 and dancing is as influential as always in fitness – and House music is still setting the major tones. Its repetitive beats will continue to inspire us to achieve great things, at high pulses. Latino rhythms from for example Zumba and Les mills Shabam will continue to fill the floors, getting great help from popular TV-shows. Find your favorite class, there are plenty to choose from.

Trends to watch? A big heads up for the growing trend in jazzfunk workout, Feminine vibe. People seem to love sweating away to female tunes from Robyn, Beyoncé, Pink and The Pussycat Dolls. Could it be that we all want to be superstars? And don’t miss the Ballet barr workouts, picking up the posture and static essentials from classical Ballet. They’ll definitely help us strengthening our core in 2013. And we are going to need it.

It’s All About the Core

Dancing is mega functional. When mixing small and large movements, you want lots of balance and flexibility. So give some extra attention to your abs, back, thighs, shoulders and butt – because what you need is a strong core. You’ll definitely feel the difference in your favorite class.
