The Health Benefits of Cardio

The Health Benefits of Cardio

Learn how much cardio you need and why cardio exercises are so important.

If you ever feel like you just don’t have the time to exercise, consider this: Being physically active on a regular basis is one of the most important things you can do to get healthy and stay that way. And as a bonus, physical activity can also be fun—join a team, recruit a buddy or just enjoy the benefits of being active, such as having a trimmer waistline or more energy. Cardio is one of the best ways to achieve all of these goals, since aerobic activities use a wide variety of muscles while increasing cardiovascular fitness.
