Pathways Health Centre For Children has been a proud partner of Ironworks Fitness for more than 15 years. Ironworks Fitness has always believed that children and youth with special needs deserve choices and opportunities to be actively involved in not only fitness, but recreation opportunities in their community. Together, the Annual "Give The Kids A Lift" integrated Bench Press Contest has raised over $150,000 to purchase adapted recreation equipment, build our community's first Sledge Hockey program and annually support our Therapeutic Horseback Riding program, Teen programs and Sensory Swim programs for children with autism. For the last 15 years, Ironworks has also provided training space, support and equipment for the Iron Eagles Strength Training Club for young people with special needs. Building people and communities is what they do best!

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.
