Aerobic boxing and aerobic martial arts are considered to be in this category of exercise.
Keep in mind that there is high and low-impact aerobics. I recommend the low-impact variety, you will have much less risk of overuse and impact-injuries, luckily these days most of the classes are the low-impact type. It's also best to attend a class taught by a knowledgeable instructor.

Overall rating: 8
This exercise is appropriate for: Those who can meet the strenuous demands stair climbing. Those who have a limited amount of time to exercise and want a time-efficient, concentrated aerobic workout.
This exercise is not appropriate for: Anyone with orthopedic or medical complications that the intense nature of stair would aggravate. This includes people with high blood pressure and smokers.
Stair climbing is actually a slightly different exercise than stair stepping. Stair climbing is performed in actual stairs, such as those that may be found in your home or at a stadium. Climbing actual stair fully weight supporting and is more aerobic than stair stepping on a machine. This is a great activity, However, you may have to build up to being able to perform it continuously for a minimum of 10 minutes. Simply walk up to the stair to the top and then walk back down. Since going up is more strenuous than going down, you should maintain the proper intensity by going down the stairs more quickly than you go up.
Remember that it is only one way to feel good about yourself - you can create others. otherwise, your emotions and feeling of self-worth will simply go up and down inversely with your weight, and the scale will become the source of your highs and lows. This is an emotional roller coaster you can't afford to take
"Be patient. If you can find or create things to be happy about today, you'll be much more likely to take care of tomorrow."
