What is dance dance revolution?
It is a game played using a television, a game console, the DDR
software, and a dance pad.
The ddr game is played on a mat or platform with 4 arrows pointing in
each direction (up, down, left, right) and four arrows on your tv
screen that will scroll or overlap. When they overlap then you hit the
corresponding arrow on the mat with your feet all while listening to
lively music.
Dance dance revolution was started in video arcades but I feel the
real weight loss benefits are going to be achieved now that it can be
played in the privacy of your own home.
How expensive is DDR?
That is one of the beauties of dance dance revolution for home. You
probably already own a TV and maybe even a playstation or similar game
console. But even if you don't own a playstation everything you need
can be purchased for approximately $300.00! This is much cheaper than
many stationary bikes or elliptical machines.
How did you learn about dance dance revolution?
As part of my job here at weightloss-articles.com I subscribe to many
newsletters and breaking news alerts, read many magazines, and
research everything weight loss related. In one weeks time I received
two breaking emails about weight loss studies with ddr and also came
across one article and many many weight loss testimonials. This lead
me to start researching to bring this information to our readers.
What are some of the claimed weight loss achievements?
In researching dance dance revolution weight loss achievements I came
across testimonials from users claiming anywhere from 5 to 95 pounds
of fat loss! I am a skeptic, especially when I read a claim on a site
that is selling products, however, when I find message boards full of
real people claiming weight loss I tend to believe it more. It just
makes sense - if you enjoy it and do it on a daily basis you will burn
more calories!
Who is DDR for?
DDR is for people who want to lose weight but who have not found a
cardiovascular exercise they enjoy enough to stick with. Overweight
children who love video games will benefit greatly from ddr. Dance
dance revolution is for the people who enjoy dancing, music, moving,
and a good challenge. DDR is also for anyone who is bored to tears
with a treadmill, exercise bike, or elliptical machine. Most
importantly it is for people healthy enough for exercise and who have
been cleared by their doctor.
Conclusion
I believe that if your exercise and eating routines incorporate
something you enjoy then you will more than likely succeed in your
goals. My cardiovascular exercise of choice and a great passion in my
life is mountain biking therefore I find it easy to do and want to go
ride anytime I get an opportunity. When I heard of dance dance
revolution or ddr I became very excited because I know many people
will benefit from this and achieve their weight loss and fitness goals
simply because they will feel the same way about ddr that I feel about
mountain biking. If you think it is something you will enjoy, can do
on a regular basis, and will stick with then by all means give it a
try. DDR is creating a craze and a community of people willing to
share stories, success, and experiences. Let us know if you have a
dance dance revolution weight loss story you would like to share with
us.
As always, I wish for you the best of health,
