I have been a member of Ironworks for eight years. Compared to some that's a short stint, but during my eight years I have experienced a quality of fitness that exceeds expectations. Ironworks is a family run gym and each and every member of the Ironworks team make you feel like part of the family - a family that I am thrilled to be connected to.

Cardio

Cardio is one of the most important things you can do for your body, whether you want to lose weight, burn fat or improve your health. The great thing is, there are plenty of choices for cardio exercise. Anything that gets your heart rate into your target heart rate zone will work, but there are some exercises that give you a little more bang for your buck.

There's no 'right' cardio exercise and the best choice is the one you enjoy and the one you'll work hardest at, but below are some of the best cardio workouts you can do to burn calories and fat.

  1. HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) - training that involves timed work and rest periods to keep your heart rate elevated for duration of workout.

  2. Tabata Cardio - working for a short amount of time (e.g.20 seconds) with an even shorter rest period (e.g. 10 seconds).

  3. Interval Programs - all cardio equipment provides preset programs and one of those options is Interval or Random. These programs will keep the program changing to constantly challenge your body for 35 minutes.
