Cardiovascular Training

Cardio training (or aerobic exercise) is a form of exercise that is designed to increase muscular endurance by improving performance of the heart and lungs to distribute oxygen around the body.

Cardio exercise is commonly used to help lose weight by burning calories, strengthening the cardiovascular system and building stamina and endurance levels.

Contrary to popular belief, through the intelligent application of cardio-based exercises it is possible to stay lean and maintain muscle mass.


Always consult your GP before undertaking any form of weight loss, fitness or exercise.
