Why Is Cardio So Important?

Cardiovascular exercise simply means that you’re involved in an activity that raises your heart rate to a level where you’re working, but can still talk (Your Target Hear Rate Zone)  Here’s why cardio is so important:

  • It’s one way to burn calories and help you lose weight
  • It makes your heart strong so that it doesn’t have to work as hard to pump blood
  • It increases your lung capacity
  • It helps reduce risk of heart attack, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes
  • It makes you feel good
  • It helps you sleep better
  • It helps reduce stress
  • I could go on all day, but you get the point

Bottom line: you need cardio if you want to get your weight under control and get your stress to a tolerable level.
