Making Cardio Cool

Posted January 14, 2019

Let’s just cut the crap. 

Doing cardio is hard, and it can turn into a dull, boring grind if you keep doing it the old school way.  That is, by working endless minutes on the treadmill, elliptical or stationary bike. 

When I’m on the road I like to train at as many different gyms as possible.  I go to low budget gyms and high end clubs so that I can see first hand what is going on in all of the industry spectrum. 

What I continue to see is lots of people frowning and drudging through their time on treadmills and other “monotonous” cardio equipment.  This is not cool anymore, and it is not an effective use of personal time.  I see young professionals on the treadmill and I want to tell them that there is a more efficient way to do cardio.  Everyone should be informed that there is a way to get a lot more out of your cardio workout time.

Technology has paved the way now for a better way to do cardio folks!

Why not combine strength training, flexibility, balance and detox with your cardio workout for a quick, interesting and fun session?

All you need is gravity, infrared and a virtual trainer.

HOTWORX created a new workout method using isometrics such as yoga and pilates and other hybrid routines that combine with infrared energy and 125º F heat inside of a patent pending fitness sauna.  HOTWORX calls this workout method 3D Training.  The three elements of the 3D workout environment include (1) exercise, (2) infrared energy and (3) heat that are fused together to make the workouts fast, effective, and interesting as delivered by a virtual instructor. 

The by-product of this workout method is a fantastic cardio workout.  I consistently reach 80% of my heart rate max within the first 5 minutes of the workout and maintain that level throughout the entire rest of the 30 minute session.  I always tell people that I never even think about cardio while I’m doing HOTWORX isometrics.  While I am focused on the isometrics, the cardio just happens.

Strength + Balance + Flexibility + CARDIO training are all happening at once in the fast 30 minute workout…

Why not experience a much better workout and get more included in the workout in way less time?  Of course, it makes perfect sense.  Time is your most valuable commodity.  Don’t waste it! 

Wasting time is not cool.  Boring is not cool.  Low workout efficiency is not cool.

Get the most out of your cardio this year.  Leave the treadmill of 2018 behind as you wave goodbye to it in the rearview mirror. 

Make cardio cool with short, interesting, challenging, and effective cardio sessions!
