Regular exercise of the cardiovascular system has been proven to reduce heart disease, lower blood pressure, help weight loss and reduce the risk of many diseases. In addition it helps speed up the body’s metabolism. To exercise the cardiovascular system it is necessary to use large muscle groups such as the legs. Based on this principle step aerobic combines traditional aerobic movements (See: Aerobic) with small steps up onto a purpose built step. With an increased fitness level these steps can be heightened. Step aerobics are an extremely comprehensive aerobic and cardiovascular workout and are therefore only advised for persons with a good level of basic fitness. All fitness classes begin with warm up and stretching, before beginning the more intensive exercises. Classes likewise end with a cool down and developmental stretching.
