This is your second workout of the Weight Management Jumpstart program and it's all about low impact cardio. Cardio is an important element in building your fitness base and helps improve your mobility, support joint health, and promote fat loss. A common misconception with cardio is that is has to be done on a treadmill at the gym; not true! Sarah created this workout to be done anywhere. Remember to keep your spine safe, core engaged, and always listen to your body; if you need to take a break pause the video, grab some water, and come back when you're ready to finish.
