Also I would suggest you to try running in your neighbourhood. Running in you neighbourhood helps you save time because you don’t need to drive to the gym or dancing studio and of course you don’t need to pay. This is something that helped me stay active the last 4 years.
It’s is good to change up your cardio routine unless of course you are specifically training as a long distance runner or a sprinter. Learning new activities also is very beneficial for exercising your mind and keeping those synapses snapping! As well as creating new neuro pathways! Hope this little bit of info encourages you to try new activity. It has worked for me, I am a 60 year old female, 5’2” and weigh 109lbs. I still fit into my clothing from 40 years ago! Good thing because all that was old is new again… lol. Besides, I have too much money invested in my clothing to have to replace it…😉
I’d say kickboxing and aerobic workouts would be a good substitute for cardio. Kickboxing gives you a good variety of cardio but adds in some strength training too, which is good for toning up. Adding weights to aerobic workouts provides a good overall workout too. Alternatively, if you are at the gym, you can do a circuit with the machines. Basically do each one for about a min for as many reps as you can and then move on to the next machine. This keeps your heart rate up and if it’s all cardio machines just pick a few. The circuit works well with a combination of strength training machines and cardio too.
Seriously, do you know what the BEST type of exercise is…?
… ready for the answer? ….
The best type of exercise is the exercise you will enjoy doing.
That’s it. Because if you enjoy it, you’ll do it. And any exercise is better than none.
So Zumba and box away! 🙂
