Cardio/aerobic training and exercise is any activity that uses large groups of muscles continously during a specific period of time. The maxmimum heart beat is raised to around 65-80%, which often increases heart and lung endurance. Many experts suggest 30 minutes of moderately intense cardio exercise at least 3 times a week in order to keep a healthy lifestyle. With our well-equipped facilities, everyone should be able to reach their fitness goals and maintain their well-being.
