Enjoy Exercise With These Low-Impact Workouts

October 14, 2014 12:13 pm

Want to begin exercising but don't know where to start? These three low-impact workouts can help you get started:

  1. Walking. Walking is extremely low-impact, enables you to spend time outdoors, and is much cheaper than a monthly gym membership. The average person can burn about 181 calories by walking for just 45 minutes, and you can always add to your speed or distance as you start to feel more comfortable.
  2. Zumba. This fun, lively workout may incorporate choreography, but it’s much simpler than most step aerobics classes or dance classes. Zumba incorporates dance moves to create an exercise program that doesn’t even feel like working out. Best of all, you’ll burn over 350 calories in just 45 minutes.
  3. Cycling. Although many people are intimidated by the loud music and fast pace of a cycling class, this is actually a very low-impact workout. Cycling is great because you can go at your own pace, and no one will really notice if you go a bit slower than the rest of the class. Even very moderate cycling will burn 381 calories in 45 minutes, and you can increase that number by pedaling faster.
