FREESTYLE AEROBICS
HI - LO INSTRUCTION

All of our aerobics classes offer hi-lo instruction allowing the participant to choose between the traditional high impact (jumping and jogging) style and a low impact style (keeping one foot on the ground at all times). Low impact does not mean low intensity, although it can be less intense, which makes it an excellent way to begin an aerobic program. Low impact is not only for the beginner, but for advancedexercisers wanting to limit stress to the body!
