What The Album Blurb Says...
An Album to help you take shape and have fun while you’re doing it.
Exercising to your favourite music has proved to be one of the most successful and enjoyable ways of keeping fit.
Feel better and look good.
Keep Fit and Dance is precisely what it says. This album will give you a range of exercises you can do easily in your own home – either by yourself or with your friends or family.
The dance steps are fun to work out and you’ll find when you’ve learned them you can use them to very good effect in the disco or at parties.
One word of advice – don’t overdo it! Gradually build up the exercises as you feel fitter and more supple. Only do what you feel capable of doing.
*If you are in any doubt about your health or ability to do these exercises, you should consult your doctor before commencing the exercises.
