These exercises were created for people of moderate to high fitness levels. In order to do them safely and correctly, you must be able to perform the following tasks without assistance:

  • Balance on one leg for at least 10 seconds
  • Step up onto a platform of 12-18 inches height

In addition, you should be able to run for longer than 20 minutes at a moderate pace. If these tasks are beyond your level of ability, do not attempt the exercises demonstrated here.
