Doing aerobic exercise, also called cardio, is one of the best things you can do for your mental and physical health.

It’s particularly effective at reducing belly fat, the harmful type of fat that builds up around your organs. Reduced belly fat should lead to major improvements in metabolic health.

Strengthen your heart and lungs!

Cardio exercise makes you sweat. It makes you breathe heavy. It might even mess up your hair. Love it or hate it, cardio helps you stay fit and healthy!

To get the maximum benefit, try to do it at least three days a week. For example, most people have more time on the weekend, so do it on Saturday and Sunday and again in the middle of the week. It doesn’t have to be all on weekdays. And if you can fit more into your schedule, go for it.
