Step aerobics uses an elevated platform (the step), ranging in height from four to ten inches.
This exercise relies on the same principles as traditional aerobics, but adds an additional level of intensity in that extra energy is expended when stepping on and off the platform.
Step classes are usually performed to music and led by a trained instructor.
Regularly participating in a step aerobics class at the right intensity will aid weight loss as the body reaches maximum heart rate and more calories are burned.
Step aerobics can be a full body workout, and combined with light weights you can work some of the major muscle groups helping to firm up and tone the body.
Step classes are suitable for all levels of fitness, and the intensity at which you exercise can be adapted to fit your skill level.
