Step Platforms Jackson MS

Step aerobics offers a more intense workout than doing the same aerobic movements on the flat floor. The step platform forces the body to give that little bit extra to step onto the platform. The other benefit is that step aerobics are low impact and don't stress the joints like running on hard concrete. The action of stepping also doesn't require a great deal of coordination for those of us who are a little under-balanced, included.

The other benefit is that step aerobics are low impact and don't stress the joints like running on hard concrete. The action of stepping also doesn't require a great deal of coordination for those of us who are a little under-balanced, included.
