WANT to get into shape, but indoor- cycling and running on treadmills just isn’t your thing?
A growing number of people are opting to join exercise programmes that combine elements like dancing or kick-boxing as they are seen as more fun and enjoyable, in addition to being able to provide an effective total body workout.
Studies have shown that frequent dancing increases heart health and lung function, while improving aerobic fitness, muscle tone and strength.
“Since dancing is viewed as more enjoyable compared to conventional exercises, many health-conscious people are looking towards dance-inspired workouts to meet their fitness goals, ” said Osim Malaysia general manager Chia Sook Fun.
However, participating in such workout sessions is proving to be difficult as today’s highly demanding environment makes it almost impossible for many to leave their workplace on time to attend such classes.
“It is with this situation in mind that we developed the Osim uDance, our first dance-inspired exercise machine that enables users to experience fun and fulfilling dance-like workouts in the convenience of their home, in their own time, ” said Chia.
“This exercise machine is ideal for those who work very long hours.
“It is also easy to use, safe and almost effortless but effective, ” she said, adding that users only needed to sit and maintain their balance on the chair as the exercise machine moves, targeting the lumbar muscle group.
“As the body moves, the user’s heartbeat will increase, enhancing their aerobic fitness as well as working out other muscle groups that are activated when the user attempts to maintain balance, ” said Chia.
uDance is designed to emulate the movements of the hip during a typical dance.
It makes a horizontal movement in the form of the number “8” that aids in developing a slim, fit and well-shaped body.
This 8-shaped horizontal movement is also popular in slimming exercises in Japan and South Korea. In addition, this exercise machine provides users with two types of exercise programmes – aerobics and toning.
The aerobics programme offers a medium-high-speed movement that focuses on improving the body’s endurance and cardiovascular function, while the toning function offers a medium-speed movement that aids in working out the core, waist and thigh muscles for a more toned and slim body.
As an introduction, Osim Malaysia is making the uDance very affordable by offering an easy-payment plan where customers only need to pay RM60 per month for a period of 36 months to own the exercise machine.
Those who want to know more, test it, or even purchase this innovative dance-inspired exercise machine are invited to visit any of Osim’s outlets across the country.
