Low Impact Cardio For Beginners!

Whether you’re a beginner or simply recovering from an injury or dealing with joint pain, sometimes you need a workout that doesn’t involve jumping.

Here’s a low-impact, no jumping cardio workout for you. It’s fully customizable. Each round takes 2.5 minutes so you can do it twice for a 5 minute finisher or repeat it several times to create a full workout.

Follow along with one of our most camera-loving personal trainers, Sabrina, or download an interval timer and do it on your own.

Sabrina will show each exercise as well as modifications and instructions as she performs the circuit.

Remember to warm up to prepare your body for your workout and stretch afterwards to help your body recover and prevent injuries. Enjoy!

Set timer interval to 30 seconds. Repeat all 4 exercises in a row, then take a 30 second rest. Repeat the circuit again for desired length of workout. Each round takes 2.5 minutes.
