The stationary bike, swimming and ellpitical are all low (or no) impact workouts that can be challenging to anyone. You don't need high impact activity in order to see results. Also, the majority of your progress is going to come from what you're eating, not exercise. So even if you can't exercise at all, you can still lose weight consistently if you're eating in your recommended calorie and nutrient ranges.

Hope that helps,

I have a couple of dvd's that I try to use a couple of times a week (although I don't always get around to it). It's in addition to what I already do. I have the Billy Blanks Taebo Abs dvd which I've found is a great source for a core workout (I feel it in my abs, obliques, and even in my back and shoulders). I don't have foot pain when I do the dvd but I can't always keep up. So, I either stop the dvd or I'll put in a pause so that I can catch my breath a bit. What's my point? You can always stop the dvd for a few minutes.

Are you doing high impact exercise everyday that you do cardio? If you are, you may want to consider alternating between high and low impact. I use the treadmill, elliptical, rowing machine, and stationary bike at the gym. I can still get a good workout on each of these machines without having to be a high impact. All I do is adjust the resistance or incline along with adjusting my speed. Basically, you could do the high impact 3x/week and then do low impact 2x/week (like leisurely walk, even if you have to walk for an hour).

TurboFire doesn't have to be high impact. Watch Allie (sp?) for low impact methods. She does not jump at all. She's the one on the right side.

I ordered turbo fire and have been it for about 2 weeks.I had to stop the other day because of foot pain with the jumping. I have had bunion surgery in both feet and I have pins in the big toes. I'm concerned all of this jumping is putting strain on my feet! I can't lose weight doing low impact exercise so i've swicthed to high impact and its to much on my feet. Anyone have any advice or options for me? I REALLY want to lose a few lbs and i'm starting to get discouraged again.
