About Diabetes and Obesity

Obese children are four times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. This shows that keeping fit from a young age is extremely important, even if it only seems like a small issue. Whilst you can be diagnosed with diabetes at any age, being obese as a child could mean this occurs before you are 25.

Diabetes is a serious and lifelong condition where your blood glucose levels are too high. You should always try to find a hobby for your children for exercise and enjoyment to keep them fit. By doing this, diabetes is much less likely to occur. There are several causes in addition to obesity, such as a poor diet and taking in too much sugar. This then means your sugar and glucose levels have to be controlled if you are diagnosed.

Street and hip hop dance styles are two of the best options to lose weight and prevent diabetes being caused by obesity. Whether this is just used to prevent diabetes and obesity or you would like to develop your dance skills, it is a fun option for all young children.

Is Dance The Solution?

Whilst there are many types of exercise, street dance can be the ultimate solution to obesity at a young age. Dance is one of the most personalised and expressive forms of exercise, allowing you to stay fit whilst being part of a fantastic community at Lil Beatz.

Even if you are not suffering from obesity, street dance will help children of all ages stay fit and prevent obesity. With our classes ranging from ages 2-6, there is an opportunity for all children to get involved in a fantastic and healthy hobby. With many different exercises, such as running and other sports, why is dance the solution? Dance targets a range of areas, including:

  • Arms
  • Back
  • Core
  • Glutes
  • Legs

From a young age, this strengthens every area of your body to avoid diabetes and obesity. As street dance requires flexibility and offers an upbeat tempo, this is better for your heart. Dance can also be very high intensity depending on the style, allowing you to burn calories and keep fit!
