Like it or not, cardio is a crucial element of any exercise routine. We always use the bicycle or the treadmill as a resource to do it, but it's time to take back a machine that is safely stored in your parents' basement.

"It raises and hardens the whole body, burns a lot of calories, and does less damage to the knees."
