5 Tips To Make Cardio Fun
Nicole does cardio 5 days a week for 60 mins. It can be very boring and monotonous so here are Nicole's top 5 tips to make cardio fun!
1 / Break Up The Routine
Try breaking up your 60 minute routine into three 20 minute exercises.
- Treadmill Interval Training: 20 minutes
- Ellipitial: 20 minutes
- Stepmill: 20 minutes
2 / Bring That iPod
Music will definitely make the time go faster. Bring a wide range of music. Rock and roll will help you through the intense cardio. Slower songs are great for cooling down.
3 / Do Your Cardio With A Partner
Having a training partner to help motivate you can be very helpful. Just make sure to not get distracted and lose the intensity of the workout. Your ultimate goal is to burn calories, so keep the conversation down and the intensity up!
4 / Include Interval Training
Switching between running and walking will keep your heart rate moving up and down. This will help burn more calories and make the time go faster.
5 / Try A High Intensity Dance Class
Try Zumba. A full dance class will leave you drenched in sweat with tons of calories burned.
