Cardio exercises are very good for improving heart health and they also contribute to weight loss by increasing your metabolism.
- If you're just starting a cardio exercise program or you have been inactive for a long time, start your cardio exercise program slowly and build your endurance gradually. It may take months to go from a very long-standing sedentary lifestyle to doing some of the activities suggested here.
- You can start with as little as 5 minutes of cardio activities at a time. As your endurance improves, add more time.
