Slower paced step workouts?

Hi all, I used to love doing fast, semi-advanced choreography step workouts, but now, with an ankle that has little cartilage left, those days are gone.

Any suggestions for step workouts that are not only low impact, but at a slower pace?

I hear ya about the pacing. Have you done any of Jenny Ford's Youtube workouts? I have been doing some of hers and still get a good workout.

Gin Millerís Everybody Steps
Jane Fondaís Lower Body Solution (sort of half step/half floor aerobics, which I like because itís different)
Step Reebok the Video ( I LOVE this workout)
Jenny Fordís Step Aerobics Made Easy
Kathy Smith and Debra Mazda also have some basic step workouts

Kathy Smith's Great Buns & Thighs (1993) workout is very good.

The pace is reasonable and even keeping it all low impact it is a heart-pumping workout.

Some great suggestions! Gilad Step Aerobics & Kari Andersonís Go are slower with basic choreo.

Cathe did a set of step tutorials on You Tube. Theyíre slower paced and easy to follow. I strung a few together to create a longer workout.

Besides the Kari and Kathy options already shared, I enjoy The FIRM Cardio Step Mix, Tracie Long's Step Forward, and Victoria Johnson's Step With Style. The last isn't super glossy and trendy re: visual ( the set decor), but she shows variations and uses the 4inch step platform as well.
