You don't have to spend a lot of your time to keep your heart healthy!


It’s no secret that healthy cardiovascular exercise does wonders for our wellbeing. Whether you’re taking a nice brisk walk or breaking a sweat in a high-intensity workout class, a cardio boost holds a plethora of heart health benefits. Alas, many of us lead busy lives that don’t always make it easy to squeeze a long cardio session into an already-packed schedule. That’s why sometimes, the best and most effective cardio workouts are those that can be completed in shorter intervals and fit easily into your day! 

We’ve gathered three cardio workouts that you can complete from the comfort of your own home (or really any space you’d like), all with the guidance of helpful and motivating instructors. The best part? You can improve your cardiovascular health and be finished with the workouts in just 10 minutes! They work with your schedule so that you don’t have to compromise caring for your heart. As with any workout, you should pay attention to your body’s signals and modify or stop the exercise if you experience discomfort or pain.
