Pump De Jamzz - Step Aerobics MasterClass

My last league of Step Aerobic Master Class also known as Pump De Jamzz for 2011 ended in December at Aero-Fitness Studio at Bandar Kinrara, Kuala Lumpur. My purpose was to gather qualified instructors and share my knowledge and choreography on Step Aerobics. I prefer small number of participants so that we can have ample room to move about.

We started the session at 9.30am and finished off at about 1pm

To me, step aerobic is interesting and challenging and is one of the best ways to tone up your lower body and burn em' calories effectively. As intense as the workout can be, you can also manage it to suit your needs. Add as many steps as you want to make it more intense or simply use the board portion to make it a minimal effort. There are different ways to adapt the routine to suit your needs. Step aerobics is suitable for all ages, very minimal cost (i invested on my stepboard almost ten years ago and it is still in a good condition) and requires only a small space
