Side Pattern

Cardio is important to your overall health and to the success of your plans to reach your goals.  Doing cardio at NexGen is a wonderful way to get in some steps; but there are lots of ways to get cardio when you are on the road for work or simply for pleasure.  Here are 7 ideas to help you get some cardio outside of the studio.

  1. Take the stairs – You can always skip the elevator to get a little cardio.
  2. Give up the front row parking place – Park in the back of the lot and get in a few steps.
  3. Participate in sporting activities – Cardio doesn’t have to be walking. Take a kayak or canoe out on the water, ride a bike, etc.  It will give you a chance to take in some scenery in addition to getting cardio.
  4. Go dancing – Dance is a great way to get cardio and have a good time too.
  5. Play a game – Play golf, go bowling or even play Wii Sports for some fun cardio.
  6. Explore the airport – Have a long layover? Go for a walk and check out the sights.  A lot of airports have great art installations for you to explore.
  7. Walk the mall – Head to your local mall or shopping center for a brisk walk and some window shopping.

With these great tips, there are no excuses for not getting in a regular, healthy dose of cardio, even if you can’t make it into NexGen.
