Cardio is an abbreviation for cardiovascular. This refers to a type of exercise that puts your heart and blood vessels to work.
Cardio is a method of training which raises your heart rate significantly over a prolonged period of time. One tries to keep the heart rate at a steady level. This can be done through running, cycling or rowing. Perhaps cross training or the eliptical is something for you. These are cardio equipment that have less impact on your joints. Our gym boasts modern equipment by Technogym.
Cardio training can be very beneficial to people who would like to lose weight or improve their overall conditioning. A combination of Cardio and Strength Training can be ideal for those trying to shed some pounds. More information about Strength Training can be found on our Strength Training page.
