I was diagnosed with hip bursitis a few months ago. I went to almost all low-impact workouts. I will occasionally throw in a higher-impact move, but I'm careful how much I do of that and only do it when my hip isn't acting up. For the most part, I've been pain-free. I do a lot of walking outdoors including lots of hills. I actually found that doing lower body workouts helped the condition - especially floor workouts that included series where you're stretching the leg/hip as you're working it (such as in the Original Buns of Steel , the "L" series of Squeeze, or Winsor Pilates Buns & Thighs, for example). I also have to make sure that I stretch my hip enough.
