Glide Your Way Fit
For an effective low-impact workout, try gliding. This exercise program uses purple disks the size of dinner plates under your feet.
Gliding exercise benefits:
- Workouts are fun and graceful without jumping or impact.
- Gliding can deliver big results because the exercises engage your body's core muscles: the abdomen and back.
- The moves improve balance, strength, and endurance.
Fitness trainer Mindy Mylrea developed gliding moves by using paper plates on the floor. The disks can be used for upper- and lower-body exercises, or as part of an aerobic fitness program.
Cammy Dennis, fitness director at On Top of the World, an active retirement community in Ocala, Florida, uses the disks in classes she teaches. Some students have diabetes and use the disks extensively. "It's safe, effective, and they love it because it's fun," Dennis says.
