How to Run In-Place

Exercise Families: Cardio,  Low Impact

Equipment: Bodyweight

Trainer: Ashley Steele


  1. Stand with your feet hip-width apart, arms bent at your sides, maintaining good posture. This is your starting position.

  2. Begin a static run by driving your left knee upward. Your right arm should swing forward while your left arm swings back. Return your left foot to the ground and simultaneously lift your right knee. Swing your left arm forward and your right arm back. Continue the static run for the specified amount of time.

  3. Running in place is a great way to elevate your heart rate and actively stretch at the same time. As you drive your knee toward the sky, aim at trying to increase your range of motion each repetition.

  4. You should feel this exercise working your glutes, hamstrings, quads, and calf muscles.
