74% of people who do cardio fitness see it as a way to stay in good health or to lose weight. And indeed, this sport, which among other things aims to elevate your heart rate, has the beneficial effect of strengthening your heart muscles. “It is by making our heart work that we teach it endurance and the ability to adapt to the demands we may make of it,” explains sports coach Stéphane Guéry. Cardio fitness can be enjoyed by everyone regardless of physical condition or age. Simply follow a course that's at your level and do exercises that match your physical abilities! And if you want to protect your joints, especially as you're starting out, consider spinning. Cardio fitness helps your heart reach and maintain its full abilities. This allows the heart to better cope with the demands you make of it as the years pass, and be able to adjust to periods of intense physical exertion, such as running, swimming, cycling, etc.
