"Line dancing is a great low impact aerobic activity that increases balance and mobility, but is easy on the joints," Kathy Mohr, fitness expert for LineLessons.com explains. "That makes it an especially good exercise for anyone over age 40."
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 14, 2010
Today, Edie Driskill announced the launch of the new site LineLessons.com, dedicated to providing line dance instruction for beginners and up. LineLessons.com is designed for those looking for an enjoyable, affordable, flexible way to stay fit.
Staying active is the best way to combat the nation’s number one health risk: obesity. For many women, the challenge is finding an activity they enjoy that fits their budget and schedule while addressing the issues of aging. LineLessons.com provides a solution by offering up-to-date line dance lessons based on the style born in the honkytonks of the 80's. Line dancing has grown up to be a dynamic, progressive activity that attracts many 40+ women who love all kinds of music, enjoy being part of an active community, and struggle to find time to exercise in their hectic schedule.
Line dancing gives participants all the joys of dancing without the need for a partner. It helps women maintain a healthy weight, good muscle tone, and youthful balance and coordination, while providing as a good low impact cardio workout with no special equipment or clothing needed to get started. Professional instruction is now available online for the first time, helping people learn at their own pace in the convenience of their home.
“LineLessons.com is a groundbreaking concept focused on a great sport that women of all ages can do to stay or get fit,” said Edie Driskill, publisher of LineLessons.com. “Because 54 percent of American adults aren’t getting regular exercise1, fun, easy and inexpensive solutions are needed. Line dancing offers a solution to this challenge because it’s easy to learn, can be done anywhere and is an enjoyable way to get moving.”
