Do you remember that scene from Girls when Hannah Horvath collapses on the road 0f exhaustion in protest against running with Adam? We think that the scene was hilarious but that’s not how you should be feeling about your cardio workout. Because workout should be fun and cardio for one is a sure, quick way to happiness, hot body and overall feelings of wellness that are sometimes just as good if not better than sex!
Luckily for us, Bushwick residents, Crunch Gym (785 Flushing Ave) has just the right ingredients to make you sweat sexy and get those endorphins running up and down you veins. Have you seen their cardio zone? Seriously, you have to go right now! It’s enormous and the top off the line equipment inviting glows with cleanliness!
Welcome to the cardio zone, the home of Tread ‘n’ Shred…
Crunch trainers absolutely recommend incorporating cardio training into your strength workout. You say you don’t know how? Start by finding your power walk pace. As you are walking at this pace, increase the slope of the treadmill to a level that feels challenging, yet still allows you to walk. Work on that for a few minutes and then step off the treadmill, do three sets (consisting of 8-10 reps each) of shoulder presses or bicep curls and step back on the treadmill to continue at the same pace.
If you’re looking for a little extra challenge, Crunch recommends checking out badass cardio called Tread ‘n’ Shed. Let us enlighten you how to enjoy this cardio that will leave you dripping in sweat as you melt away calories. In it, you’ll use a combination of sprints and slow walks with varying speeds and ramp heights to get a workout that’s got all the ups and downs of a roller coaster.
When you’re done with your cardio, don’t forget that Crunch in Bushwick offers also state-of-the-art strength training machines; you can hire one of their kick butt trainers to mix things up or you can take any fun classes such as Cardio Tai Box or Retro-Robics!! Eeek!
