FitnessU: Ramped-up indoor cardio to get your heart pumping (Part 2)

Those of you in cold weather climates may be starting to thaw out now, and the rest of you may be well on your way to enjoying spring. But no matter the weather, all of us need a way to get moving indoors when time is tight and you just need to move.

Back in January, our trainer gave you part one of our indoor cardio series that included a warm-up and beginner-friendly routine. In part two, we’re stepping it up a notch with intermediate and advanced options for those of you who’ve been doing this exercise thing for a while or are extra fit. We recommend doing your own warm-up or starting with the warm-up in part one, then choose your own adventure* and get moving.

Warm-up and beginner routine

Intermediate: This one is for you

If you’ve been working out for a while and have a solid fitness foundation, jump into our intermediate routine. Pay close attention to how your body feels, and don’t be shy about bouncing back to the beginner moves if you need to. If you’re feeling it, repeat this circuit twice.

Advanced: Only when you’re ready

You should be able to get through the first routine with ease before you move on to this one. Once you’re ready, get your high-level, indoor cardio fix here.
