The importance and benefits of Doing cardio are clear and in our faces every day , but unfortunately many people don't know what constitutes as effective cardio, so Run for a couple of miles and Be healthy, but that is not all because today's people needs to be strong, fast, and athletic.

I recommend you one hour on the elliptical every single day or also you can walk on a super inclined treadmill

For weight loss, you might need even more (up 60-90 minutes) depending on your diet and other activities. it's tough keeping all these rules straight and the good news is that you don't have to. Sometimes it's best to forget the rules and get back to the basics: cardio isn't just for weight loss "don't forget that"

if you have a sedentary job, think about how your body feels at end of the day. Do you have tight muscles, an aching back, feel exhausted even though you haven't done anything physical ? maybe your shoulders burn from tension and your head hurts from staring at a computer screen for too long. Now, think about how your body feels after a workout.

your muscles are warm and flexible, the blood is pumping through your body, providing oxygen and energy. You feel energized, confident, proud of yourself and ready to take on the world. it's much different, isn't it ? Our body are made to move--not sit around all day and yet, that's exactly what we are doing.

So wake up, Stand up, eat healthy, drink a lot of water and always think that workout is your therapy not your punisher.
