How do you explain to clients that they can get a cardio workout without a treadmill or elliptical? What would be a sample workout you would give a client who says they just dojt feel like theyre getting enough of a workout without doing cardio machines? Clients that dont have a gym membership or time to walk outside when its cold or raining.
Good answers. I am a strong advocate for interval training, whatever the modality of cardio exercise. Increase intensity until the ventilation threshold is reached, slow down, catch breath, then speed up again, whatever the modality. If health condition allows, sometimes increase intensity to an RPE of 10, then slow down, catch breath, then speed up again. The post-interval cool down is essential. I suggest making it at least 3-5 minutes.
