Hello! I'm reading a leaflet about a gym and here I find the following paragraph:
"New club with gym, steam room, sunbeds. Full range of classes, inc. aerobics, step, slide. Reduced rates for students."
I seem to be having problems with the word "slide". To my understanding this is a plaything you find in children's playgrounds, and I certainly have never seen one in a gym. Is that the meaning of this word here or am I missing something?
This is a paragraph from Bodybuilding.com - Bodybuilding.com Writer - Aerobics: An In-Depth Look!

But there are many options for product selection.
As in the photo Naamplao posted, slide aerobics involves putting oversized plastic "booties" over your athletic shoes and then sliding from side to side on a special mat. It is supposed to imitate the movements of a speed skater.
