Need to lose weight or have a need to stay healthy by exercising? There’s nothing wrong with going to workout gyms in the city, and certainly, there are a lot in Cagayan de Oro to choose from. But instead of those boring workouts on treadmills and weights, ask around the gyms as they might offer other stuff that’s more fun, while still getting to exercise. In fact, here are some of our suggestions:
Aimee Dabuet – Authentic Belly Dancing
At the CGY Fit Gym at the Sports Zone along Tomas Saco Street in Nazareth, Ms. Aimee Dabuet is CDO’s only instructor for “authentic belly dancing.” What Ms. Dabuet is teaching in her classes is authentic” belly dancing, the basic belly dancing that originated from fertility dances in Arabic countries, Egypt, and Turkey. It has no mix of western influence whatsoever.
For both males and females, the health benefits are enormous because it is a non-impact and weight-bearing exercise and is suitable for all ages. It prevents osteoporosis for older people because of the isolation moves that improve the flexibility of torso, spine, and abdominal muscles without the grave impacting from more severe exercises. The dance movements also build up upper body strength as well as in the arms and shoulders. The leg and back muscles are also strengthened considerably and has also been proven to produce great weight loss.
