30 Minute Circuit Training?

Recommended Posts

I am debating if I should join one of those women's Thirty minute circuit training gyms. I went for the free trial workout today. It seemed easy and I am far from being in shape. The instructor there did not know if this workout was good for preventing and improving osteoporosis. I have pretty bad osteoporosis due to celiac disease. I don't want to waste my time and money if it won't help my bones. Has anyone tried this and did you see results?

The machines they use are "hydraulic" and use "push/pull" I don't know if this is considered weight bearing. Please let me know what you think.

According to this article I found - you would also benefit from doing traditional weights as well to build up bone density. :)

You might want to do a session or two with a personal trainer who specializes in osteoporosis. He/she should be able to come up with a challenging workout for you that builds bone mass. I don't know much about the 30-minute workout places. I just know I would get bored and want to vary my workout more.
