Many gym-goers list calorie burning as their number one reason for opting for a cardio session, but the truth is that aerobic exercise is about much more than keeping your weight under control. A cardio workout gets your heart beating faster and is the most beneficial type of exercise for your cardiovascular system.
When you are looking for fitness equipment that will raise your heart rate, you will be looking at cardio equipment, including:
Figuring out which piece of equipment is right for you can be confusing. But asking yourself three questions will help you narrow it down.
- What type of exercise do you like to do?
- Do you have any physical limitations?
- How much space and ceiling height do you have?
Don’t have a lot of space? A folding piece of equipment or a smaller profile piece like an indoor cycle may be best. Have hip or knee problems? Maybe a seated piece of equipment is right for you, like a recumbent bike. But do always try to always pick a piece of equipment that you like to use – if you like the exercise you’re more likely to do it!
