Cardio Training in Chicago

Cardio (cardiovascular) training is one of the main things people are interested in when looking for a gym membership. Cardio exercise is any type of activity that increases your respiration and heart rate while using large muscle groups repetitively. This type of exercise is great for the heart, as it can improve both its function and its performance. It is also great for the lungs and circulatory system.

A gym with cardio equipment like Uptown Fitness offers allows you the ability to get the exercise it needs in a very short period of time, making a morning or lunchtime workout an efficient way to exercise. Here at Uptown Fitness, we have a wide variety of state-of-the-art cardio machines including ellipticals, exercise bikes, treadmills and steppers. Also, our machines are equipped with the option to do interval training, meaning that you can alternate periods of hard work with periods of lighter intensity exercise. This is like doing an hour’s worth of cardio in 20 minutes, which is great for people who are pressed for time.

If stationary machines aren’t your thing, check out our group exercise schedule for some other motivational and fun ways to get your cardio in for the day.
