It was the must-do class of the 80s, but you can still get all the same body-buffing benefits using a Step at home

Cheap, versatile and discreet (keep it under the bed), you can do hundreds of body-toning exercises on a Step – these are just a taster. And, by increasing the height, you can make the moves harder and step up your workout (see what we dis there?!).



Works: Core

·         Sit on the Step with your feet off the floor and lean back as far as can while remaining balanced.

·         Slowly crunch up while bringing your knees into your chest.

·         Straighten your legs as you lean back to the start position. Do 10 reps.

Description: Crunches




Works: thighs, glutes and core

·         Stand side on, with your right foot up on the Step.

·         As fast as you can, step your left foot up onto the Step, while jumping your left foot down to the floor on the opposite side

·         Repeat this movement, moving from one side to the other as fast as you can for 30 seconds.

Description: Side-step



Side crunch

Works: Obliques and core

·         Lie with your left hip resting on top of the Step, your feet crossed and steady on the floor and your fingers touching your temples.

·         Crunch up sideways as high as you can, then lower under control.

·         Repeat for 10 reps, then switch sides.

Works: triceps, shoulders, chest and core

·         Get into a press-up position with your hands just over shoulder-width apart on the Step.

·         Bend your arms, lowering your chest as low as possible towards the Step.

·         Push up, straightening your arms. If this is too hard, try it with your knees on the floor. Do 15 reps.
