Fearless Fitness Friday: Step Aerobics, Old School Style

TGIF, Shopaholics! Welcome to Fearless Fitness Friday! 


Are you a fan of step aerobics? Some of you that are a little younger won't remember - but "back in the day" Step Aerobics was almost the only group exercise class offered at the gyms and fitness centers. I'm pretty sure I took my first step class in 1987 (ssshhh don't tell, I realize this makes me sound very old!).


As with anything, trends in fitness have changed over the years and now most of us are taking Kickboxing, Circuit Training, Pilates, High Intensity Aerobics, Zumba and Yoga. They are all wonderful workouts but...I often wonder "What about Step?" because I know the classes are great calorie burners. 


Imagine my surprise Tuesday night when I arrived for my "Advanced Burn" class and the instructor said we were doing Step! Yeah! Amazingly enough, I remembered most of the moves and was able to keep up. It was a fun workout - and made me wish they offered it more often! 


Did you ever take Step Aerobics? Or do you take it now? What is your favorite workout? I suppose it doesn't really matter, as long as we're working out - right?!?!?


Have a Fantastic Friday!

  1. We used to use those steps during off-season training for swimming! My legs are so short and when we put that at a really high height I always thought I was going to die.....or trip. I'm really into running and spinning right now!
