Aerobics is a physical exercise that combines rhythmic aerobic exercise with stretching and strength training routines with the goal of improving all elements of fitness (flexibility, muscular strength, and cardio-vascular fitness). It is performed to music.

What's occurring within your body as you exercise aerobically?

  • Your breath deepens and becomes quicker, increasing the amount of oxygen in your blood
  • Your heart beats faster upping the blood flow to your muscles and lungs.
  • Your capillaries (small blood vessels) open, delivering more oxygen to your muscles and taking away more waste products.
  • Endorphins, your natural pain killers, are released giving you an increased sense of well-being.

And if you do aerobic exercise on a regular basis and your body adapts. Your heart becomes stronger and more efficient. Your heart rate decreases because a stronger heart is able to pump more blood with each beat.

Performing regular aerobic exercise leaves you with a strong, fit heart and body. Your clothes fit better. You've got more energy and endurance, not to mention a better outlook on life. And your chance of being limited by heart disease, cancer and the many other diseases and conditions that plague older women has been decreased.
