Cardio Exercise Classes

Cardio exercises are anything designed to get your heart pumping, and intensify your breathing. There are two main types of cardio: steady state, and high intensity. Everyday forms of cardio exercises include things like hiking, cycling, rowing and swimming - even chores like vacuuming and mopping, as well as your cardio workouts in the gym, including BodyAttack, Boxing and Shockwave.
