Before creating your fitness plan with high and low impact exercise, consider the unique benefits of each. Low impact exercise is usually light, gentle and easy exercise that can be done by people who do not want to practice a high impact exercise routine. Both high and low impact exercise is beneficial to weight loss. In fact, a low impact exercise program can help to lose weight by burning calories just as well as a high impact exercise routine.
For a number of people, high impact exercise is simply not an option.
With low impact exercises, one foot or the other is always in contact with the ground. You may have to work a little harder to get your heart rate to its target zone, but low impact exercise is a great way to get in shape for many people.
