Do 15 Minutes of Cardio Everyday

In this week's challenge you must do 15 minutes of cardio everyday. We all know we're supposed to do cardio exercise. We know it burns calories and can help us lose weight, but do we know why we really need to do cardio exercise? Our bodies are made to move - not sit around all day and yet, that's exactly what we're doing.

  • Increased bone density
  • Reduced stress
  • Reduced risk of heart disease and some types of cancer
  • Temporary relief from depression and anxiety
  • More confidence about how you feel and how you look
