5 Ways to Get in Your Cardio Every Day

By Genevieve Cunningham

When it comes to working out, a lot of people really want to skip their cardio session. They don't want to sweat or suck air. They don't want to be physically and mentally exhausted by the end. They'd rather hop in a yoga class or lift a few weights. But cardio is important for strength, stamina, and long-term wellness. And luckily, it's really easy to add into your life. If you need some easy ideas for getting a little cardio into your routine, take a look at these five fun and effective ways to do it. 

Walk

Walking is an excellent way to get in some cardio. It's gentle and low-impact. It can be done anywhere and with very little equipment. But it still counts as cardio! If you need more of a workout, walk faster or uphill. Want to keep it easy? Just walk at a comfortable pace. This is a great option for beginners or for anyone looking to keep their cardio routine simple. 

Run

If you're up for something a little more difficult than walking, just turn your walk into a run. Running still doesn't require much equipment, so you'll only need a pair of good shoes. But because your pace is much quicker, the work out is a little harder. You'll burn a few more calories. You'll feel a little more pain in the muscles. If you want a challenge that's simple to fit into your schedule, running is a good choice.

Dance

The great thing about dancing is that it's fun. If you're up for a class, check out your local gym or dance studio. But you can also simply bust a move in the comfort of your own home. Put on your favorite kind of music and get moving. Dance is challenging and difficult and also so much fun. If you need fun and low-stress, you can't go wrong with dance.

Play Sports

If you like sports, join a local team or get some friends together to have some fun. The good thing about sports is that it's fun, but you'll also be breaking a serious sweat. You'll work muscles and challenge the lungs and make progress without even knowing it. If you need a low-stress way to get fit, sports might be it.

Fitness Class

Why not just join a class at your local gym? Chances are good that you'll have lots of options. They might have aerobics or interval classes or all kinds of options. You'll get the benefit of an instructor to guide you and a group of other people to keep you motivated. If you like someone to lead you through the process, joining a fitness class is the perfect choice for you.

Cardio is a necessary part of a good workout. Luckily, it doesn't have to be boring. Use these choices to add a little variety to your routine, and you'll be in better health in no time at all.
