Cardio Workouts: Our Bodies Are Made to Move

Cardio is one thing that can get you up after a long day at a sedentary job. Think about how your body feels at the end of the day. Do you have tight muscles, an aching back, feel exhausted even though you haven’t done anything physical? Maybe your shoulders burn from tension and your head hurts from staring at a computer screen for too long. Now, think about how your body feels after a workout. Your muscles are warm and flexible, the blood is pumping through your body, providing oxygen and energy. You feel energized, confident, proud of yourself and ready to take on the world. It’s much different, isn’t it? Our bodies are made to move–not sit around all day and yet, that’s exactly what we’re doing. Few things are as valuable to our body as a Cardio workout. What is great is that so many activities can turn into a cardio workout. In addition to the activities below, can you think of something that can be turned into a Cardio workout?
