GET THE LOWDOWN ON EXERCISE MATS
Want to ensure a comfortable and safer Workout, you should consider the addition of an Exercise Mat. Used to cushion hard surfaces, these Mats can also provide,
Non Slip, Extra Grip Surface.
Cushions Impact, especially on your Back or Bottom when doing floor work.
Ideal surface for Stretching and Cool Down Sessions.
I recommend that you choose an Exercise Mat that has a strong durable surface and an ability to resist tearing. Also choose a Mat that is large enough for your current requirements (don’t pick one that is too small). There are many sizes on the market, so that means lots of variety.
So for Comfort and Safety, please use this Exercise Equipment, because their benefits far outweigh their minimal cost.
WHAT'S BEST FOR YOU TO USE AND WEAR?
To ensure that you enjoy your Cardio Training, no matter which you choose, it is important to use and wear the correct Fitness Gear. Comfortable, loose fitting clothing that is suited to the particular activity and the conditions (climate) is extremely important.

Also proper Footwear, matched to your activity, is so vitally important to prevent foot injuries and to provide stability and support.

HOW TO WORKOUT WITH THE INTENSITY YOU WANT.
To maximize your Aerobic Workouts and better track and gauge your improvements, you’ll need to train at your optimal Target Heart Rate.
On the "Heart Rate" page there is a more detailed analysis regarding all aspects of Exercise and Target Heart Rates.
The easiest and most efficient way to track your "Training Heart Rate" is with the use of a HEART RATE MONITOR.
I can’t emphasize enough how important the use of a Heart Rate Monitor can be, as using one will reflect in your results and ensure that you are training safely.
I trained for years without one and now with hindsight, I can honestly tell you that, "I WOULD NEVER TRAIN WITHOUT ONE".
If there was one piece of Exercise Equipment that you should not be without, it would be a Heart rate Monitor.

ARE YOU IN THE GROOVE?
A Fantastic Motivational Tool, when having a Workout or Training is being able to listen to your own FAVORITE MUSIC.
Not that many years ago all you could do was drag a bulky Walkman around, listen to a radio or just whistle a tune (and that can be difficult if your having a Workout).
But now since the advent of MP3 players, personal Aerobic Exercise has taken on a whole new groove. You can Walk, Cycle, Jog, practically do any form of Cardio Training, even Swim and use an MP3 player, for example.
Listening to your choice of music while you Workout, can lift your Motivation and Enthusiasm to greater levels. It's your time and you deserve to enjoy it and get the most out of it. The Music of your choice makes your Workouts something to look forward to and adds another dimension.
I think a great name for it could be "MUSIC EXERCISE".
And you can learn from my mistakes, I trained without Music and a heart Rate Monitor and looking back it was the biggest mistake that I could have made. But the great news is you don't have to miss out. The options are all there for you these days, with a massive amount of choice.YOU KNOW THAT MUSIC MAKES YOUR WORKOUTS MORE ENJOYABLE!
