Cardio is an important part of working out for weight loss by helping to get your heart rate up and burn calories. Cardio doesn’t have to be a dreaded workout either, whether it’s a run outdoors on a nice spring or summer day or finding the right workout in the gym, here are our top workouts for you to explore! 

  • High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) – a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that a few sessions of HIIT per week can make a huge difference in fat-burn efficiency. These quick, fast-paced movements can have a huge impact 
  • Running – either outdoors or on a treadmill indoors. For an effective kick, you can try sprinting which adds a level of HIIT to your runs
