Getting fit is one of the best ways to help raise your vibration and improve your overall well-being and quality of life. Exercise can be a simple path to happiness, and it's readily available to almost anyone and everyone. There are countless benefits to fitness, check out a select few below:
Lower the risk or reverse Type 2 diabetes, lower your blood pressure, boost your levels of good cholesterol, improve blood flow (circulation), weight control, prevention of bone loss/ osteoporosis

Every day, lives are elevated through fitness. Whether you're looking to tone, strengthen, or lose weight, High Vibe Sister will provide you with the tips and coaching support you need to reach your fitness goals 100%.
HIGH IMPACT VS. LOW IMPACT
Both are great for reaching goals such as losing weight, getting fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. But what's the difference?
Cardio & Strength Training
High impact workouts are workouts that are high in impact on the body and typically require both feet off the ground at the same time. Examples include: HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), cross training- running, jumping jacks, or knee-highs, burpees. If done incorrectly, high-impact exercises can put you at higher risk of injury. Having a fitness instructor or coach can help ensure that your high-impact exercises are done properly to prevent injury. Although. high-impact exercising is a bit harder on the body, results can come a lot quicker. If you're at low risk for injury, high impact workouts are optimal when you want:
To Lose Weight Quicker. High impact exercises require more energy, (and calories), to be burned. Since you can burn more calories in a shorter amount of time, it becomes ideal for fast weight loss.
To Train or Challenge Yourself. Because of the intensity of high impact activities, if your goal is to condition your body to be in the best possible shape, or perhaps train for an event, such as a marathon, high impact can be efficient in helping you get to where you want to be in a shorter time period of time.
LOW IMPACT EXERCISE
Stretching, Toning & Balance
Low-impact exercises have less impact and tend to be gentler on the joints and muscles. Examples include: walking, swimming, cycling, cardio on the elliptical machine, hiking, yoga, pilates, and some forms of dancing. Low-impact exercises can also aid in the performance of high-impact exercises by helping build strength and flexibility around the joints to protect them better when you do perform more strenuous activities. For injury or in recovery, or needing to go easy on the joints, low impact exercises, if any, may be recommended by doctors. If you are otherwise healthy, low impact exercises can be optimal when you want:
To Strengthen & Improve Balance/ Alignment— Unlike high-impact exercises which focus on burning calories and building power, low impact workouts can often focus more on strength, stretching, balance, and alignment. For example, one can benefit enormously in all four aspects above with yoga or pilates.
To Take a Cardio Break— It's good to change it up sometimes and take a break from high-impact workouts that pound on your joints. Calories can still be burned and strength can still be gained. Just because it's low impact doesn’t mean it’s super easy. Exercises like cycling and rowing can still increase your heart rate. Low impact workouts, like walking can also be a great activity for an active rest day.
Mind Body Vitality—Mental & emotional health, and overall well-being, esp. through mindful movements such as yoga.
