Step routines are easy to do at home, as the only equipment needed is a small step platform that can be stored under your couch or bed. Whether you are a beginner or long-time step workout enthusiast, the right step aerobics DVD can be a great resource and can help to keep you motivated to exercise several times a week in the comfort of your home.
