Running is probably the best way to get a cardio workout.  But since you do nothing, except run, it is likely that performing this exercise will become stagnate and you will get bored.  Getting bored with your workout is a really easy way to lose your motivation to be healthy, and that is a bad thing!  So here are a couple things to make your run a little more exciting and effective

All you have to do is hit that incline button and you are well on your way to a great workout. It’s a great way to switch up your workout because it works the muscles that regular running does, but also includes more muscles that get some much needed attention.

This is a very effective way to exercise. HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training, and essentially means that you work your body at it’s maximum for a smaller amount of time. It will kind of shock your body, but in a good way.
