April 4 Health and Beauty Pick: Just Dance 2

By Nicelise
April 4 Health and Beauty Pick: Just Dance 2It is the first week of April, which means that bathing suit season is even closer. If you, like me, are looking for more ways to get that cardio in until it's warm enough to run outside again, Just Dance 2 for the Wii will do just that.
My family got the Wii a few Christmases ago and we've been having fun playing with it ever since. Each Christmas since, we've either gotten a new game or accessory, including the Wii Fit. When it comes to Wii Fit, I've found the workouts a bit boring and not very hard. I felt like I was spending more time and energy picking out the moves than I was on the actual workout. The Wii Fit games are much more fun that the actual workouts.
However, the best workout I have ever gotten using the Wii is with the games Just Dance and Just Dance 2. Not only are you having fun dancing to upbeat music, but you're also working out. The dances are excellent cardio workouts, and some dances have you huffing and puffing like you wouldn't believe. I prefer Just Dance 2 simply because there are 40 songs with a variety of dances, including Latin- and Bollywood-inspired.
April 4 Health and Beauty Pick: Just Dance 2There are songs from today, including some from Ke$ha and Beyonce, as well as some from back in the day, including James Brown and Elvis. My personal favorite is "Proud Mary" by Tina Turner, among many others. I like this Wii game because not only do I have fun playing (and kicking the rest of my family's butt, I can't be beat) but you don't even realize how hard the cardio workout was until you're out of breath and sweating afterward.
If you're like me, you get into a routine with doing the same workouts over and over again. This game is a fun way to break up the monotony as you ramp up your bikini bod workouts.
