They say small is beautiful and it turns out that, in the case of exercise, this is true: a small burst of cardiovascular exercise can actually be better for you than a long run. We take a look at the top cardio workouts for the busy traveller.
Cardio Workouts for the Busy Traveller
Quick, intense cardio workouts mean that your metabolic rate speeds up so much that you can continue to lose weight even after you fall asleep!
Exercises such as the bodyweight squat, the squat thrust, the single dumbbell arm swing and the ‘explosive pushup’ are ideal disciplines to kick-start this metabolic wonder. Sessions of up to 20 minutes should be long enough if you are pushing yourself to the limit.
This is not a regime to be entered into lightly and a suitable level of fitness is required before building up the repetitions of each exercise. Your gym instructor will help you set appropriate goals.
The other great benefit of a high-intensity cardiovascular workout is that it is ideal for people on the move and with little time to spare. Many of the guests at Hallmark Hotel Manchester Airport are on business trips and they take advantage of our state-of-the-art cardiovascular gym to boost their exercise regimes.
The facility is a factor in why they make Hallmark Hotel Manchester Airport their preferred choice of hotels in Manchester. Add to that the convenience of being one of the few Manchester Airport hotels with parking and you can see why Hallmark Hotel Manchester Airport is so executive-friendly.
However, our gym facilities are for everyone to work out in and meet every need, from water baby sessions and swimming lessons to our Keiser air pressured total body circuit equipment.
Meanwhile, for the de-stress portion of your gym visit you can choose between various attractions including a relaxing poolside Jacuzzi, the steam room with eucalyptus essence and our Swedish sauna.
Play hard, relax hard!
