Step Platforms Somerset KY

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.

Step Platforms

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.

There are many companies that sell step platforms, but then try and tempt you with extras such as exercise videos and step aerobic guides. But if you're on a budget you can make your own step platform from typical household items such as a block of wood, a milk crate, a short stool or a concrete block.
