Not your mother's workout... How to get Sexy for the summer
So, here we are 4-months into the New Year and already I've started hanging clothes on my tread-mill and putting on my tennis shoes to go for a quick jog... to my car to go and check the mail. When will this madness end? I know that there are plenty of fun workouts that I can do that won't get boring after the second month...why oh why can't I just do it?
You don't even have to open up the magazines to read the headlines, "Your Best Body Ever", "Flat-Belly Foods", "Get ABS and Buns of Steel" and on and on. Everyone knows that the beginning of the year is the best months for health clubs and gyms because everyone wants to start the New Year with a better body, heart, mind everything.
What about now that the newness has worn out and we're bored with the 30-minutes of cardio on the stationary bike followed by the anorexic chic flexing her leg behind her head in yoga or the white girl teaching the hip hop dance class. (Sorry, this is the one race issue that I've allowed myself...see next article).
Your perfect partner could be online right now...
What are you looking for?
I think that maybe I have found a solution and all you need is a pole. Yep, you heard me right. A stripper pole, not naked exercise, but add some music and look out now you have conquered more than one task. I have yet to meet a man that does not enjoy seeing his woman partake in a little well-done strip-tease show. If you look around your area, I am sure that you will find a place that actually teaches a class on this.
There are also studios popping up all over the place that offer classes on belly dancing and exotic dancing. Think about it, when was the last time you saw a chunky striper, upside down on a pole?
Seriously, pole dancing is considered to be a form of gymnastics. It not only provides a great cardio workout, you can burn up to as much at 500 calories per hour. If you can find a class near you expect to spend $100-$300 for a four to six-week class.
Belly Dancing is great for the mid-section. If you work at it for an hour, you can burn from 250-500 calories. Classes range from $50-$200, there are also videos, and DVD's available to teach you in the privacy of your own home. The same with exotic dancing, there are a ton of products on the market and on the internet that you can buy to help you with this form of exercise. My unconventional method would be to go and hire a stripper to teach you how to strip.
Think about the benefits to both parties. She can learn a new skill, teaching. You on the other hand, may be able to borrow some of her fun costumes and stripper pumps without having to dish out any extra cash. Besides, who amongst us can say that they have a stripper for a teacher?
Whatever you decide, make the choice to get up get out and do something. Have fun. Exercise does not have to be boring to work. Work what you've got and then...imagine what you can add to your profile...minus the pictures...make those private. I don't need to see all that.
