Zumba isn't necessarily "high impact", but it can be very hard on your joints. It can be, depending on the instructor. Lots of jumping around.

Walking is low impact, and a great way to lose weight. Given that losing weight is primarily about nutrition, and not so much exercise (you can't out-exercise a bad diet) it's very possible to lose weight even with mobility issues.

Honestly, there's not much we can advise you on, given your medical condition. Only a medical professional who can examine you and consider your medical history can really advise you on that!

I have some leg issues that I need checked out. They are pretty much congenital....but I am going to seek advice on what I can do. It has been part of the reason why I have started and quit SP 3 times. In the time being I am only doing low impact things.

Currently, I am working out on my recumbent bike. It has resistance so this can give me a good workout.

I am looking for some other ideas for low impact cardio. I know walking is good. Right now, swimming isn't an option. Nor is joining a gym...but this might be more doable. I would loooove to swim.

Is zumba considered high impact?

But until then....any ideas?
