Featured Image for Fit Tip: Low Impact Love!

Monday Morning Fit Tip:



Research suggests that low-impact activities are just as effective as high-impact exercises in lowering the risk of heart disease; while putting less stress on your joints!  Try mixing one (or more) of these low-impact exercises into your workout schedule:


  1. Walking – to mix it up, take advantage of hills or weighted ankle wraps!
    new helix machine
  2. Rowing Machine – this is an intense & fun way to workout your arms, back, legs and core!
  3. Helix Trainer – this new machine gives great results to the entire lower body – as well as being a wonderful cardio workout!
  4. Strength Training – try squats, lunges or supermans!  Need help?  Try a class!
  5. Water Aerobics – the resistance of the water makes the workout feel far more intense, while the water cushions you from the impact!
  6. Pilates – improve your flexibility, posture, and abdominal strength while decreasing back, neck and joint pain!
  7. Elliptical – boost your heart rate (burn fat!) while working the upper and lower body at the same time.
  8. Yoga – develop your flexibility, strength, and balance then relax!
  9. TRX – TRX moves target different parts of your body while burning fat = an amazing total body workout for all levels!  See club for class schedule.

Go low-impact and enjoy the amazing weather, too!  Summer is great for kayaking, cycling, rock climbing, and swimming!  Share your favorite low-impact exercise below!
