This 30 minute Step Workout for Beginners and Seniors will improve your cardiovascular system, build your strength and endurance, and improve your balance and coordination. It is also a beginner pyramid HIIT workout, featuring 5 exercises in rounds of 20, 40, and 60 seconds. You’ll rack up 1200 steps more or less depending on your pace.
The basic moves featured in this step aerobics for seniors and beginners include:
✅ Basic Step
✅ Side Leg Lift
✅ V-Step (Wide Wide/Narrow Narrow Steps)
✅ Hamstring curl and row
✅ Jumping Jack and Toe Taps
This HIIT step workout for beginners can be done at a more advanced level. For more challenge, ramp up your speed and/or add light weights. April holds 2 pounds weights in this workout.
This workout can be done without the step as well. If any of the moves are too much, just march in place or do a move that feels comfortable.
