If you knew you could lose weight while having fun --would you do it? Well of course you would! Newschannel 7's Nicole Morten shows us how some local women and men are shedding the pounds.

Forget about the treadmill--its time to dance!!

That's exactly what these men and women are doing here at dance life fitness in Panama City Beach.

Jay Holmes, Instructor & Nutritionist, "Ladies and gentleman learn to do real dance moves which are choreographed into a routine, so they're both working on their fitness and they are learning how to dance at the same time."

And only after a few salsa and mambo classes --Shanendoah Gilligan says the pounds are dropping one rhythm at a time.

"I love it, I have lost 2 and a half-to-three inches. I'm toned, people are starting to notice which is great feeling," said Gilligan.

Deresa Young says she's hooked.

"Tuesday was my third class and I had already lost four pounds and I can even tell on my jeans," Young explained.

Holmes says the great thing about it is you don't even have to know how to dance.

"For one, it's fun, when you mess up, it's fun, they laugh, we have a great time."

But the best part about it all…

"They don't even realize their working out, until they're done, they are so concentrated on learning the dance moves and getting into the music, they don't realize the whole time they are burning tons and tons of calories."

"One of my favorite things is the fact that it's an hour long, we start at 6, it's a quarter to 6 and I'm like where did the time go?"

Jay Holmes invites those who are interested to come to the studio and try the class for free. For more information about dance--life--fitness you can visit their website at dancelifefitness.com
