Hey Fam! February is American Heart Health Month so we have decided to improve our heart health with a 10-day Cardio Challenge and we want you to join us! Starting TODAY February 1, 2019 we will have a small workout for you to do with us daily.
While strength training is important to boost your metabolism so you burn more calories at rest, if you want to lose weight you also need cardio. But if you’re not a bonafide cardio-junkie, the prospect of getting in solid cardio workouts each week can be daunting. Plus, you might not even know what the best cardio to lose weight technically is. The intimidation or lack of knowledge can result in losing interest in your cardio instead of losing pounds. Never fear! We’re here to give you a refresher on why cardio matters and then offer up seven surprising cardio workouts for weight loss that you’ll actually WANT to do! They’re a lot more fun (and more simple) than you might think. Ready to get your cardio on? Let’s go!
Weight loss is a wonderful byproduct of cardio exercise, but there are so many other great benefits of getting your cardio on. Check out these additional benefits of cardio exercise before we get into the seven best cardio workouts for weight loss:

We are super excited for our 10-Day Challenge and we hope you join us!
