You all know I’m a fan of trying new workouts. I definitely have my go-tos, but I’ll never say no to a new class or workout style. Trying new things is the best way to challenge yourself and your body and also learn what you like, after all!
That said, when Beachbody offered me the chance to try their newest dance fitness program, Country Heat, I was hesitant.
“What the heck, Nicole? You just said you love trying new workouts.”
I know. I know, but I also know from trying so many new workouts that dancing and I do not get along. I always see dancers and think, “How cool would it be to do that?!” I get all inspired and decide I’m going to learn. Then I take a class and can’t for the life of me get my hips to go left and my arms to go right or figure out how the heck the instructor is moving so fluidly while I look like a drunk chicken. Actually, scratch that, a drunk chicken can probably dance better than I can. Wouldn’t want to insult all the chickens out there.
Despite my concerns, Beachbody assured me it was fun and even non-dancers are loving it. Alright, I’ll give it a shot. I did really enjoy the last Beachbody workout I tried.
Before I get into my thoughts, how’s about a little background on what Country Heat is all about?
This program was created by Autumn Calabrese, the brains behind the incredibly popular 21-Day Fix. As a trainer, Autumn realized that one of the top reasons people don’t lose weight is because they can’t stick with their workouts. She wanted to create a program people would stick with, so she created Country Heat, a program that is so simple and fun, you’ll actually want to do it.
Each dance workout (there are 6 different ones) is set to chart-topping country music and all of the moves are simple and line dance-inspired. Plus, each workout is only 30 minutes, making it easy to squeeze into a busy day. Here’s a little preview:
The program also includes an eating plan, workout calendar and quickstart guide to help you along your health and fitness journey.
Even though the folks at Beachbody told me the workout would be great even for drunk-chicken dancers like me, I didn’t believe it, but I was going to give it a try.
Before taking on the first video, I watched a how-to on the moves (there’s a short video before you take on each new workout). Autumn broke everything down in a way I could understand, and the moves really were simple! I felt like I was doing them pretty well!
Then came the moment of truth: the workout. Right from the get-go, I realized this wouldn’t be torture, after all. The music was a blast, the people in the video looked like they were having the time of their lives, which made it more fun for me to follow along, and the workout was actually a lot of fun!
I wasn’t insanely sweaty at the end, but I did feel like I got in a decent, low-impact workout. I think this is definitely a great option for people that don’t like HIIT and aren’t a fan of weights. This would actually be a really great option for people who flat out don’t like exercise because it doesn’t feel like exercise! It feels like you’re at a southern saloon having some fun with your friends. You don’t need any equipment, either, so you can do it from the comfort of your living room.
I’m definitely keeping Country Heat around as a solid workout to fit in on recovery days or on days when I really just don’t feel like working out, and, thanks to Beachbody, one of you will be able to win the whole program!
