We have this idea that "cardio" is running and cycling. That it's treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals. When we think of fitness we think "cardio" and "weights". Good news is... your idea of "cardio" is a bit off, and so is your idea of how to approach fitness in general.
Today we're talking about your heart, heart health, and how to keep your ticker strong and healthy. I'm taking time to shatter your idea of "cardio" because, well, I kind of have to get through that to get to the good stuff.
