Goal of Dancing is Not Fame, It's Fitness

Goal of Dancing is Not Fame, It's Fitness

If you've been following Dancing with the Stars this season then you've seen Laila Ali strut her stuff across the stage...

Being the daughter of boxer Muhammad Ali certainly helps, but that girl is fit (and she can move too). Ali has announced that Dancing with the Stars is just the beginning of her upcoming fitness ventures including a boxing oriented fitness DVD series with Sugar Ray Leonard and a book. The DVD set includes Lightweight Beginner's Workout ($10.91), which is a series of warm-up exercises and stretches. The cardio-boxing routine has easy to follow combinations of punches as well as defensive moves. This DVD can help you get fit all while seeing the other, non dancing, side of Laila. It's refreshing to me that she is not looking to be club hopping with Paris and Nicole but rather, she’d like to set an example for young women and others about the importance of living a healthy life. Fame or not, with an outlook like that, she's got a fan in me.

Not a boxer but still want a hot Dancing with the Stars bod like Stacey Keibler or Cheryl Burke? You can get it at home with the Dancing with the Stars Cardio Dance DVD.

I think she looks great. I had no idea she had a dvd out...

I rented the DWTS cardio DVD, and it was so fast-paced and confusing that I couldn't even do any of it! The dancers give very little instruction. The only good part of the DVD was seeing more of the three dancers' personalities than we see on the show.
