5 Low-Impact Exercises You’ll Love

5 Low-Impact Exercises You’ll Love

When most people think of an intensely sweaty workout that delivers real results, they usually picture the kind of cardio that’s heavy on the high-impact moves, says NASM-certified personal trainer and barre instructor Michelle Houston. While those styles definitely have their place, plenty of low-impact exercises can get you those same benefits — and more. You need only look to Beachbody’s Barre Blend program, a fusion of barre, Pilates, and cardio interval training, to see that! Low-impact workouts increase strength and endurance, and boost metabolism, “without having to suffer any pain, jolting, or discomfort from impact,” Houston says. Because low-impact exercises are easier on your joints, you can do these workouts more often during the week, she adds, which can keep the results stacking up quickly. Ready to sweat it out with our favorite low-impact leg exercises? First, check out the Barre Blend glossary, and then try these moves from Super Trainer Elise... Read More
