Dancing Kings and Queens

If you love tearing up the dance floor at weddings and nightclubs, then it’s time to start shimmying away some calories at Zumba class. This Latin-inspired, high-energy workout feels more like an hour-long dance party than a workout, so it’s almost impossible not to have fun. Oh, and watching your partner shake their thang to sexy Latin beats can be a major turn-on -- one that’s likely to lead to a second workout later on that night for double the fun and calorie burn.

Other workouts to attack together: salsa dancing, ballroom dancing, Glee Club (available at select Crunch Fitness locations, Crunch.com), hip-hop, or if you’re a little worried about showing off your skills in public, there’s the Dancing with the Stars workout DVD series (Amazon.com)
