A love of dance first brought the Chix together. 3 of us met at Zumba class in 2010, the 4th came aboard 5 years ago in a U-Jam class. What does dance bring to the fitness table? Clearly cardio vascular benefits, strength training weight loss, flexibility and fun . . . but a side benefit can be a boost in your memory!
Studies show learning choreo can prevent developing dementia . . a 76% reduced risk. Aerobic exercise can reverse volume loss in the hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls memory.
So keep your memory skills sharp by taking your favorite latin, hip hop, line dance or ballroom class. Per the Chix . . . . Just Dance!
