Dance To The Beat

Today is the first day of the Get Your Heart Pumping Challenge, sponsored by Humana.

The next time you hear your favorite song and can't help but move your body, feel good knowing you're benefiting your heart. Dancing is a full-body workout and a great way to get your heart pumping. Plus, it’s a blast!

If you don’t want to have a solo dance party in your living room, don’t worry — you’ve got other options. You can try a dance class like:
  • Ballroom dancing
  • Belly dancing
  • Cardio drumming
  • Jazzercise
  • Line dancing
  • Neuromuscular Integrative Action (NIA)
  • Zumba

Other fitness classes like barre or cycling workouts use music as their foundation, so while you’re not necessarily dancing, you’re still moving to the music.

No matter how you groove to music today, it’s sure to do your heart some good. The goal is to raise your heart rate enough for it to count as moderate physical activity. You’ve got this!

What music do you love to move to? Let us know Better yet, show us! Post a video or photo in our challenge update thread here, in our private Facebook group, or on Twitter, or Instagram and tag us with #healthynurse.
