Lose Body Fat Through
Aerobic Exercise

Are you looking to lose weight fast?

Aerobic exercise is exactly the kind of exercise you are looking for.

Aerobic exercises offer a fun and upbeat way to get the best of a good cardio workout.

And who doesn't enjoy a good cardio workout?

Everyone does really.

There is such a large variety of exercises with varied styles and disciplines to choose from.

Can anyone do this type of exercise?

No matter your age, sex, or athletic ability, most people can find atleast one aerobic style or program that they enjoy doing.

It is one of the best ways to lose belly fat and flatten your stomach. That is also one of the biggest reasons why so many people view it as their exercise of choice.

What makes this type of exercise different from the others?

The main purpose of any type of aerobic exercise is to increase and maintain an elevated heart rate for a minimum of 30 minutes, if not longer. This is accomplished by continually moving the larger muscles, usually to music, at a high paced rhythm.

As the heart rate increases, oxygen is better circulated throughout the body. This strengthens muscles and promotes endurance and increased stamina.

Benefits of Aerobic Exercise


Most health professionals and many fitness experts agree that the health benefits from cardio exercise are numerous:
  • Stronger Heart - A stronger heart doesn't beat as fast and pumps blood throughout the body more efficiently. Having a stronger heart can prevent or reduce cardiovascular disease.
  • Muscles and Bones - Research points to how exercise in itself is not significant enough to affect bone density, but when muscle strength was increased, so did bone strength.
  • Increased Blood Flow - 'Good' cholesterol levels get a boost and 'bad' cholesterol levels lower with regular exercise. It also helps to lower high blood pressure and control blood sugar levels.
  • Stronger Immune System - Each occurrence of moderate exercise heightens the immune system. While the immune system returns to pre-exercise levels rather quickly, research has shown that each 'boost' to the system collectively reduces the risk of catching a cold over the long-term.
  • Higher Energy - When you exercise additional oxygen and nutrients are provided to your tissues, blood circulation is then increased, and your heart and lungs work more efficiently. This leads to increased energy.

Does one style or type of exercise burn more calories than another?

Not when it comes to aerobic exercise. Although there are varied degrees of risk and injury associated with each exercise, when done properly, both high-and low-impact exercises can burn alot of calories.

There are 2 different styles of aerobics:
  • High-impact aerobics
  • Low-impact aerobics
What are high-impact aerobics?

High-impact aerobics are often referred to as cardiovascular exercises, cardio exercises, or a cardio workout.
Step Aerobics
This is a faster paced, more rigorous and intensive exercise program that regularly requires both feet to lose contact with the floor.

A few examples of high-impact aerobics:
  • Step Aerobics
  • Running
  • Jogging
  • Biking
  • Dancing
  • Rollerblading
  • Skiing
  • Skating
  • Tennis
What are low-impact aerobics?
Water Aerobic Exercises
The intensity of the exercises should not feel any more stressing than a fast walk or jog.

Low-impact aerobics usually have smaller risk of injury.

Low-impact exercises are recommended for people recovering from injury, seniors, pregnant women, and overweight individuals.

A few examples of low-impact aerobics: It is always recommended to start your workout with a warm-up and finish with a cool down and final stretch.

Don't forget, the benefits of exercise cannot be truly felt unless they are complimented by a healthy diet.
