Low-impact workouts such as yoga, barre, and pilates help tone and strengthen your muscles, while placing less direct pressure on the body (versus sports like running and basketball, for example). These studios offer classes that are great for those looking to improve their posture, breathing, and flexibility. And because they're easier on the joints, they're also good for people looking to ease into a fitness routine for the first time, or for those coming from injuries. If you're used to high-impact exercises and sports, try cross-training by incorporating in your routine a class or two from one of the places listed below.
Exercises that are low-impact likely won't keep your heart rate elevated in the same way that a spin session would, but if you think low-impact means easy, then hold up! You'll be surprised by the burn you'll feel from a barre class, or by how much a power yoga or HIIT-Pilates class can get you sweating.
So what are you waiting for? Breathe, pulse, and get fit.
