Step Platforms La Grande OR

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.

If you've ever charged up 8 flights of stairs to your office or apartment when the elevators were out of service then you're already a pro at step aerobics without even knowing it. Step aerobics is popular because it's simple to do and requires little equipment or space. All that's required for a butt- and thigh-blasting step session is a flat surface, a step platform and a lightweight, sturdy pair of sneakers.

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.

There are many companies that sell step platforms, but then try and tempt you with extras such as exercise videos and step aerobic guides.

Just be sure that your raised platform is sturdy so you don't fall off and break your recently finely toned backside that's right, I found out the hard way that the toned ones don't provide quite as much padding.
