Most of the time people get to the point where they just don’t want to do any sort of workout because they can’t find a way to do it without getting bored and due to this we often neglect our health and store nothing but tons of fats which shows up in the form of weight gain.


Last week I got an invitation to try out MAD- Mad About Dance sessions and I preferred to try Bollywood fitness. This place is tucked away in Centerpoint near Burjuman, a little tricky to locate if you are going there for the first time.


About MAD:

It is a dance institute that offers training in various dance forms including Hip Hop, Bollywood, Popping, Locking, Lyrical Hiphop, Bhangra, Contemporary and many more. But what’s unique is that all the dance forms are centered around the much adored theme – Bollywood! What’s more..? If you want to shed those extra kilos before its bikini season again, there’s MADx ; Zumba that fuses dance with exercise so you can get into shape the fun way! M.A.D offers group classes and customized individual classes too.

Benefits of dance workout :

  • good for your heart
  • makes you muscles strong
  • help with balance and coordination
  • dance moves that work your lower body, including your quads and hamstrings
  • dance uses your core muscles
  • weight loss

I had a session of 60 mins in which we started up with some warm up exercises, a smart warm-up gives your muscles, bones, and joints a chance to loosen up, it gradually and gently brings up your heart rate and makes it easier to get into the rhythm you want to sustain in the form of hard core exercise. Later we did some fast dance moves with cardio that transition into some relaxing moves at the end, in order to calm down the whole body.

You can even enroll your kids to their summer camps or join with them to have a good family workout time. Get ready to hit the dance floor! Dancing is a whole-body workout that’s actually fun.

Thank you veathika for introducing MAD to me. It was a lovely experience.
