Attending a step class may not sound too thrilling, but actually this can be a very entertaining way to get fit. You might also hear it referred to as step aerobics, since it incorporates a lot of aerobic activity. Whatever the name might be, it uses a platform of some kind, usually rectangular, that is used throughout the routine. The height may vary depending on your experience and fitness levels.
There are plenty of gyms and sports centres that offer step classes of various kinds throughout the week. This is a good way to get into it and enjoy it as you will meet lots of other people. You will also have the advantage of enjoying the experience and tutelage of an instructor who is qualified to teach this class.
Why might you need to know about step class injury compensation?
With a bit of luck you may never need to claim step class injury compensation. However, with that said, you are already reading the content on this page. That means you may already have suffered some kind of injury while taking part in a class of this nature.
If this is the case, the one thing you have to be aware of is the need to prove that someone else was at fault.
