Another great cardio favourite is cycling – let’s face it: we never forget how to ride a bike, do we? Indoors or outdoors, cycling is a fantastic fat-burning, cardiovascular workout as well as a great way to tone and condition our core and lower body.
As popular as our treadmills and bikes are our cross-trainers. They offer elliptical, impact-free motion – which is kind to the joints – while working the upper and lower body and getting the heart pumping.
Free weights are great if you want to concentrate on a certain area of your body. They give you more freedom of movement and are great for building core strength and balance. If you haven’t used free weights before or need a few pointers to check you’re doing it right, just ask.
