How To Lose Weight By Dancing 20 Minutes A Day

Updated on March 9, 2011


Dancing is a fun activity and while doing it you may not realize that you are actually exercising!

The great thing is that you can dance just about anywhere, anytime, and to anything!

You can shut all blinds and dance in the privacy of your own home, or go out and dance at the club, or at your friends house, wherever! You can dance whenever! And you can dance to any kind of music you like!


Setup certain times and days that you plan to dance/workout. You may want to write it down!

You can plan to dance 20 minutes every day before work, or you can do it 3 days a week! Whatever works for you, but plan on dancing for about 20 minutes each time.


Figure out where you would like to dance and plan accordingly, although you can change this if you want. You don't have to dance at the same place every time.


Now decide what music to use.

It's a good idea to make a mix tape or CD that is about 20 minutes long and that you can play every time you workout! This way you get use to the routine.

Pick some music that you like, some songs that you can sing along to, but also something that makes you want to get up and shake it!

Once you have your music, crank it up! Play the music loud enough that you feel it so it makes you want to dance to it.

Do It

Now that you have your routine set with the times, days, and music that you are going to use... Get to it!

Get started! Remember 20 minutes a day, and however many days per week that you can handle.

Begin a little slow and then pick up the pace! After about 2 minutes you will begin to feel the groove and the dance will just come to you naturally!

One of the greatest things is that you can dance however you want. Pretty much any dance is going to burn fat, but if you have certain areas that you want to work on most then you can create a dance that pinpoints those areas.

If you need some ideas for good and fun dances, youtube it! Search for dances on

Change It Up

Feel free to change your dance each time. Don't just do the same old thing every day!

Not only will this help target different areas of your body, but it will keep you from getting tired of working out!


You are on your way to a better/healthier body.

Good luck! And Don't Give Up!

      Nice hub! I'd like to add that when I have a heavy housecleaning day ahead, I will crank the tunes, usually a mix of disco and rock and dance all around the house while I am cleaning. You can't help but smile. Double duty people, and you actually feel great when you are done!

      I love to dance. My son and I randomly dance for no reason at all. It gives us a reason to smile.
