Why Cardio Shouldn’t Be Left Out Of Your Fitness Plan

For many, cardio, or cardiovascular exercise, is a dreaded word. For others, it’s a passion, something they can’t seem to get enough of. Whichever group you fit into, cardio and cardiac monitoring is something that shouldn’t be left out of your fitness plan. There are various forms of cardio exercise, all of which have great benefits. Primarily, many people perform cardiovascular activities to lose weight, but it doesn’t just end with fat loss.

Cardio improves the condition of your heart. Just like any other muscle, it needs to be worked in order to be strong. If you fail to work it, it can weaken with time, causing health issues that may include heart disease. Cardiac monitoring and getting the heart pumping at a fast rate on a regular basis can keep you healthy. Cardio also helps improve your metabolism, which helps maintain or lose weight.

Believe it or not, exercise changes the hormones in your body; if you’ve ever noticed how much better you feel after a workout, it’s because your body releases “feel good” hormones that reduce the symptoms of depression and fatigue. Many individuals who regularly perform cardiovascular activities may also have a better outlook on life thanks to the benefits of these hormones.

Moving around and getting our blood flowing through cardio strengthens our heart and lungs by teaching them to work more efficiently. From running to swimming and beyond, other health benefits of these activities include:

Reduced risk of heart disease
Improved heart function
Improved muscle mass
Improved mental health
Increased stamina
Weight loss
