If you are looking to increase your fitness levels or to lose weight then our new Cardio Zone has the right kit for you.

Our cardio area is the perfect location to warm up, warm down or work out with a full range of cardio equipment, including rowers, treadmills, cross-trainers and bikes. It’s spacious, light and airy.

Cardio exercise is vital for all training routines. The quickest way to develop lean muscle and a low body fat ratio is to burn calories and excess weight through cardiovascular exercise, which will reveal the muscles you already have and help you to show quick improvement when you tie it in with the heavier aspects of your training regime. Cardio is particularly important for achieving muscle definition and improving all round fitness.

It is especially important for gaining mass as it ensures that your heart and lungs develop the capacity they need to manage the increased load you are putting on your muscles in the free weights area.

Different training goals bring different cardio requirements whether you are training for size or fitness, it is important to manage your cardio routine properly. Lose too much weight too early in your regime and you may reduce your ability to develop full power from your upper body when you need it. For general weight management, increased cardio activity can form the foundation for quick and visible success.

Our personal trainers can design a bespoke cardio programme, tailored to help you meet your goals for strength, size and appearance. Just let us know what you’re hoping to achieve, we are there to give you the power to go further, harder and faster.

3 Tips to Improve Your Cardio Work

  1. Try HIIT Training

    The principle here essentially would be jogging for two minutes, sprinting for one, or jogging for one minute, sprinting for 30 seconds, and so on, you can alter the formula to suit your needs and ability. You do not need to do more than 20 minutes as the emphasis here is to get your heart rate up and down in a speedy fashion, which is great for fat burning.

  2. Set A Goal

    Don’t let your mind wander away when using cardio equipment, as this can take away from the intensity of your efforts. Every piece of cardio equipment will give you a reading of the distance you have covered. So why not set a goal of trying to beat the distance you may have covered the previous session in the same allotted period of time.

  3. Get Your Heart Racing

    Most cardio machines will have a heart rate sensor which is activated when you place your hands upon them. Ensure you are working within your target heart rate and pushing yourself by placing your hands on these sensors. Make sure your heart rate does not drop below your maximum heart rate.
