Make sure you have space to move side to side for this fun cardio and warm up exercise. Start off on the right hand side, standing up tall with your arms out to your sides for balance. Step your left foot behind your right foot. From this start position, take a side step with your left foot and then cross your right foot over the front of your left, then take another side step with your left foot, repeat this sequence for 3-4 steps to your left, then reverse the sequence (stepping your right foot out and crossing over with your left foot) to move back across to the right hand side. Carry on moving side to side for the duration of the exercise.
