Alive and dancing – HipHopAbs

You look good, you are getting abs.

I LOVE to dance. Whenever I am dancing, I feel free and without inhibitions. Just shake it like a polaroid picture, and dance the night away. Like nobody’s watching.

Which is in fact the case when I’m doing a round my HipHopAbs again. The only trainer that makes me enjoy my work out is Shaun T. I believe we got introduced in 2013 and he never left my side. Well, he was there, more inactively then actively, because I don’t exactly work out every day. Point is: he was there and he introduced me to this routine that I didn’t hate to do.

As I’m not the kind of person who jumps out of bed to do a set of squats and push ups, I am not exactly the sporty kind. I do bike wherever I go, but that’s just routine. If you have a busy life which involves wine, beer, pasta and some delightful snacks, a regular work out is necessary.

Don’t cha

I just finished my round again and feel so liberated, good and full of energy again! Which makes me wonder: WHY don’t I do this every day? Everything that makes me feel this good, I should integrate in my life, right?

Almost every evening when I go to sleep, I say to myself: Sas, tomorrow when you wake up. Drink a glass of water, take your laptop up on the kitchentable and go work-out. If I don’t work out in the morning, I don’t feel like practicing any sports at night, so I don’t do anything. As we all know, time FLIES like mad and the last time I did a HipHopAbs work-out, was last Saturday. Ha, that technically means that I did two work-outs this week. HAH.

Now, I know that HipHopAbs shows results (if you do it right, meaning 5 times a week) and it’s fun, because I am dancing. I think the secret is that it’s the only work out with a trainer that talks NON-STOP.

Yes, you have to be able to cope with that for 30 minutes, but I obviously need that. Maybe it has to do something with the fact that I am pretty talkative myself. I only know that it works.

My 29 minute work out – the fat burning cardio one- is easily integrable in a full time office-life. every time I start and see the timer on 29:43, for a brief second I think: ugh.

But then the music plays, Shaun T starts to pump the whole thing up and before you know it, the timer is on 15 minutes and through the dancing, it’s done before you can complain.

I mean, what is there to complain about when a guy (even though, he is not exactly straight and talking through a screen) tells me that I’m amazing, I am getting abs, I am doing great?

It boosts my confidence and makes me want to go the extra mile.

Even though I could do more work-outs, I felt like doing a little shout out! From now on, I am going to stop beating myself up for the fact that I don’t work out every day. Instead, I am going to be proud of myself for every day that I DO! How’s that for a Friday.

WOOHOO! – and now, because Hiphopabs wouldn’t exist without Shaun T and catchy music, here’s today’s playlist.


In case you have any questions about this work-out, ask away in the comments!

Enjoy your day and just be proud of yourself everytime you work out.

You got this!

Get HipHopAbs, all week long!

You look good, you are getting abs.
