been my go-to workout. Whether it is steady state for 45 to 60 minutes or HIIT (high intensity interval training) for 30 minutes or interlaced in my circuit training sessions. I love it! There is no other way to put it. It is an unadulterated, pure love, almost akin to the love I have for my kids, ALMOST! It isn’t the movement that I love per say, but rather the feelings I get during my sweaty sessions and the endorphin kick in the butt I get afterward that I have come to have these deep
rooted feelings for. I know, I know most fitness experts out there will tell you to not waste your time on cardio and I agree to a point. I mean if you are in a gym, or worse yet in your dark basement for hours upon hours on end, walking to a never ending destination, yes, don’t bother. You will be bored and
dread trying any sort of workout at all. This however doesn’t have to be the case; cardio can come in many different forms.
For example, when I am out camping with my family, cardio comes in the form of beautiful, scene-stealing nature bike rides or hikes. Looking for adventures has been a blast for us and it gets everyone involved. See? Here I am killing 3 birds with one stone, getting my cardio fix in, teaching my children the importance of being active and spending quality
time with my family. Win, win and win! You can also try one of those cool Zumba classes, cardio and dancing fun all in one shot. Don’t worry if you look like an idiot dancing, we all do, I have come to realize the instructors are the only ones who look graceful, so put away your pride and get grooving. If you are more hard core, you can try a kickboxing class, which I tend to do in the very near future thanks to a friend of mine. That’ll bring my cardio to a whole other level, maybe I’ll pass out before we even start, ha!
So remember, just because someone tells you not to do something because they don’t think its right, it doesn’t mean it’s wrong. Find something you love to do and just do it. The important thing is to be consistent no matter what it is you choose to do.
Until Next time,
