Inject a little fun and new inspiration into exercise routines. Aerobic StepStep aerobics is a form of aerobic exercise distinguished from other types of aerobic exercise by its use of an elevated platform (the step). The height of the step can also be tailored to the individuals needs by inserting risers under the step or by having no risers at all.

This class will use basic step choreography, while incorporating old school aerobics mixed with current and modern moves and music. The benefits of step aerobics are proven to strengthen and tone muscle groups, while burning calories and improving coordination. This low impact class uses cardio work to produce as easy-to-learn and effective workout.
