Anyone use dance videos for exercise?

Is looking into Beachbody.
I'm wondering about their dance style workout videos.

Anyone use these with success?

Are there any free (or cheaper) options online?

    Just look up Zumba orcardio dance on YpuTune and you will find a TON for free. You'll have to deal with shorts ads every now and then it to me it's not a big deal. You can find whole classes, or what I do is just pick one song and then YouTube typically follows it up with a similar song/dance sale. It's great because it's a variety and I can do as many as I want.

    Beachbody has some good options.

    Just off the top of my head:

    Shawn T's Rockin' Body and Hip-Hop Abs.

    Autumn C's Country Heat.

    Chalene Johnson's Turbo Jam, Turbo Fire, and to a lesser degree Chalean eXtreme.

    Les Mills Combat

    Beachbody's attempt at an in-house Les Mills Combat, Core de Force.

    I've completed a round of Turbo Jam and Chalean eXtreme, back to back, which are dancy-type, music-based cardio kickboxing in the past with success. Especially when paired with UFC-type open fingered MMA gloves 4-8 ounces, or the once touted Les Mills Combat gloves, when Les Mills was being licensed by Beachbody for a time.

    The other programs, I have not tried.

    I do Pop sugar cardio dance vids. I find them lots of fun to do and an easy way of getting some cardio in without feeling like you're working over hard.

    Just search for "cardio dance" or "Zumba" on YouTube and you will find a ton of free ones.

    I like shinedancefitness.com
    The cheapest tier is $11/month and they release several new workouts every week.

    They have some free workouts (with ads) on YouTube if you want to test them out first.
