Looking at low-impact exercises

With the possibility of one day hopefully living in a one bedroom flat, I have been looking at low-impact exercises I can do. I did not want to being doing Zumba or any other kind of exercise similar and find the neighbour below were being disturbed by thumping noises of me dancing to it. This has happened in the past, except he wasn’t annoyed, he was smiling as he talked about it and wondered what was going on, when I was moving out. I had a Wii fit at the time then and I never thought about the disturbances I may cause, while dancing away. Also, I am heavy footed when walking about, which tends to be my right leg that does this. (The slightly weaker side.) So there will no energetic type of exercises when I’m one day living in a flat.

I already do Pilates and I realised why not get back into Tai Chi. Last year, I did look at some Tai Chi DVD’s and I remember there was one that caught my eye, so in January, I decided to treat myself. Here they are. I also have another one of his DVD’s called “Tai Chi Fit To Go,” that I am yet to try out as this post goes to air.

Tai Chi Fit - 'Strength' and 'Flow' DVD's.

It was years ago when I last did Tai Chi. (My late teens.) I came across some Chinese guy on TV in the late hours and wondered what the hell he was doing. This was my first seeing of Tai Chi and once I realised and watched for a while, I had a go and I discovered it was harder than it looked. Soon, I was waiting for him to come on every week to follow along to it and I enjoyed it. One day, he did not appear on TV and I never seen him again.

Back to present, I have these Tai Chit Fit DVD’s; ‘Strength’ and ‘Flow.’ (And also ‘To Go.’) I looked this guy up on You Tube after coming across him on Amazon first, just to see if I would get an idea of being able to follow him and whether I would enjoy it. It seemed to me I would. After trying them, I find that these were the right DVD’s for me and really enjoyable. It is like having your own instructor in your living room and since I have started doing Tai Chi with these DVD’s, there has only been a couple of days where I have not done any, but I missed it.

  1. Tai chi is great. I also try to do low-impact exercise, and I stand in front of my computer on some carpet squares all the time that I’m here, so I can dance around on them a little all day with music on if I want, or I ‘run’ in place in the most low-impact way for half a minute or so at a time–whatever works that day. The desk is there for support if I need it. Good luck with your fitness plan!
