The 9 Best Cardio Workouts That Have Nothing To Do With A Treadmill


Is there anything more boring than running on a road that leads to nowhere?

That's exactly what it's like trying to get some cardio in on the treadmill.

Don't get me wrong, I love working out -- but I absolutely detest anything that involves running and a treadmill. How is that the least bit enjoyable?

There is no way anyone actually looks forward to doing this at the end of a long day.

It's no wonder so many people complain about exercising — they think this is what it has to entail. But they could not be more wrong!

There are a ton of other exercises a person can do to achieve similar -- if not better -- results, especially when it comes to cardio.

Don't believe me? Well, that's exactly why I asked the experts...

1. Cardio Barre

Barre? Cardio? No way. Most people think barre has absolutely nothing to do with cardio but when it comes to Flywheel's barre class, that is not always the case. The company offers a class under the name FlyBarre Sport that combines your favorite barre moves with cardio elements.

2. Hot Yoga

3. HIIT (High Intensive Interval Training)

4. Kickboxing

5. Spinning

6. Rowing

7. Dance Cardio

8. Trampolining

9. Boxing
