Aerobic Dance - Step Or Bench Description
Step aerobics is similar to regular aerobic dance but a step or bench is added to increase the intensity of the exercise without adding a great deal of high impact stress. Participants use steps of varying heights to achieve different intensity levels. Begin with a lower step/bench and increase the height only when it becomes easy for you. This activity may be done with others in a class setting or by yourself at home with a video or audio tape. Fitness Expert recommends that you follow a certified or qualified instructor or that the video or audio tape has been approved by one of the organizations listed below.
