Regular cardio workouts help with weight loss

No matter your fitness level or experience of gym workouts, cardio training is something that everyone can do and should do to help them get fitter and healthier. By working on your cardio fitness, you’ll soon reap a number of benefits that will mean that you leave the gym happier.

One of the biggest benefits of cardio training is weight loss and by including regular cardio workouts in your workout programme, you’ll lose weight quicker. If you’re using an Xercise4Less gym to try lose excess weight and reduce your body fat, you need to be doing regular cardio training. This could mean using a treadmill, an exercise bike, a rowing machine or a stair climber – whatever suits you and your gym session.

Smash your fitness goals with cardio training

Whatever Xercise4Less gym you visit, you’ll find a large cardio gym zone. We provide this space so that every single one of our valued members has the freedom to work on their fitness journey in away to suit them. It doesn’t matter what your current fitness level is, the cardio gym zone allows you to take your workout at your own pace.

Whether you’re using the gym to maintain your current health and fitness or you’re competing for a major sport competition, cardio training can help you. To make sure we’re at our full health, we should be doing some sort of physical exercise every single day. For some people this may be spending 90 minutes running up and down a football pitch or it could just mean spending 20 minutes in the gym using a cardio machine. Either way, some form of cardiovascular training will improve your physical health. It will increase the strength of your heart as you’ll be pushing yourself to your limits and testing yourself. You’ll also reduce your risk of high blood pressure and high cholesterol as you sweat away body fat and burn excess calories.

The more that you raise your heart rate, the more calories and fat that you burn from all over your body. This puts your body into a weight losing state, but only if you are in a calorie deficit too. To really smash your weight loss goals and take your personal fitness to the next level, it’s important to do regular cardio training.

Cardio workouts can improve your mental health

Not only will cardio workouts help you to lose weight and reduce your risk of serious health issues, they help you to focus on and strengthen your mental health. Physical exercise is proven to produce endorphins which leave you feeling happier and much more positive. If you’re someone who struggles with mental health issues, try to do some cardio workouts as regularly as you can to promote happy hormones around your system.

With cardio training, you can do low intensity workouts such as walking on the treadmill with a slight incline or a steady cycle on the stationary bike – doing this for a long period of time allows you to switch off from everything going on in your head and focus on your gym workout. Whether you prefer going to the gym solo or with friends, use your time doing cardio training as a distraction that will not only improve your physical but mental health.
