The Importance of Cardiovascular Workouts
Cardiovascular workouts are exercises that get your heart rate up, boost circulation, and engage your entire cardiovascular system. These workouts help to strengthen your heart and lungs, improve blood flow, and increase overall fitness levels. Engaging in regular cardiovascular exercises can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, and improve cholesterol levels.
As we age, it's even more vital to prioritise cardiovascular workouts. The human body experiences natural changes that can impact cardiovascular health. Cardio exercises help counteract these effects, keeping your heart strong and your body resilient.
Benefits of Cardio for Adults Over 40

Weight Management: Maintaining a healthy weight becomes more challenging with age. Cardio exercises help burn calories and maintain a healthy body composition. It is important to ensure your daily calorie intake is also alinged with your overall activity goals.
Joint Health: Low-impact cardio workouts, such as swimming or cycling, can be gentler on the joints, reducing the risk of injury or discomfort.
Enhanced Endurance: Cardio workouts boost stamina, allowing you to engage in daily activities with ease and tackle more demanding physical challenges.
Mood and Cognitive Benefits: Cardiovascular workouts release endorphins, improving mood and cognitive function. Staying Forever Active means staying mentally sharp.
