Get ready to dance the weight away with the latest dance work out. Beachbody collaborated with Autumn Calabrese to bring the Beachbody faithful new country music inspired workout program, Country Heat. Autumn kicks it up a notch with her high-energy line dance crazed 30 minute low impact program. It looks like a lot of fun.Autumn has married together her two passions, fitness and country music. In Country Heat, she steps out of the gym, and steps into the dance studio to deliver a work out that will reshape your body with high energy easy to follow dance moves in as little as 30 days. The goal was to create a high-energy program with moves so simple anyone could jump in and follow without a lot of fuss or fear. Novices and seasoned dance pros alike will enjoy the cardio centric moves as they work up a sweat toning and shaping their muscles.

Here is a sample of the dance steps involved:

One of the dance routines starts with 8 counts of side steps to the right ending with a simple toe touch. Then 8 counts of side steps to the left. Then it is 8 counts of “heel steps” done in place and ending with 8 counts of stepping in place to a ¼ turn to the left. Once you make that ¼ turn, repeat the steps again. Pretty easy, right? Now, imagine 4 more simple routines set to songs like Cotton Eyed Joe, Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy, or Born to Boogie just to name a few. We have the coach’s summit coming up in July and I imagine Autumn will lead us all in this dance workout during the Super workout. It is going to be a blast with 30,000 people all line dancing. The best thing about this program, other than the simple approach to line-dancing, is the lack of equipment needed. You do not need free-weights, or exercise balls. All you need for this program is the right attitude, and a little room to move while having fun dancing away for thirty minutes a day. In no time, at all you’ll have melted off the weight, tightened up your booty and toned your arms, abs, and glutes. . Oh, and if you want to wear that cowboy hat go right ahead. As with all Beachbody programs there is a focus not only on getting you moving, but also on your nutritional needs. Autumn was the brainchild behind the 21-Day Fix and 21 Day Extreme both of which use her patented 7 color-coded portion control containers. She includes a set of these containers when you purchase the program too. When you purchase Country Heat, you will get five-dance workout routines all set to popular country tunes, a quick start guide, a 30-day calendar, and a nutrition guide. As a bonus, you also get an extra line-dance workout routine along with Autumn’s portion control containers. Country Heat is priced well at $59.85. Autumn has brought us many amazing programs in the past from her 21 Day Fix, to teaming up with Sagi Kalev on Hammer & Chisel. I have no doubt that County Heat will be equally successful. I anticipate Country Heat will be released during the Coaches Summit this July with a preview possibly available on Beachbody on Demand prior to that.
