I found a really good way to find out if you are as fit as you think you are. We all think we are pretty fit but this will really tell you if you are or not.

The Cooper 12-minute Run Test is the benchmark for if you really are fit or not. You will do a 12 minute running test and at the end of that you will be scored.

If you think you are fit then see just how much you really are compared to the normal joe out there.

I’ve been looking for something that can help the more serious cardio exercise people with high level exercise for them.

This tweak helps exercisers maintain a higher heart rate longer to burn more calories and to have a greater fitness experience.

If you are into interval training or just going to that extra level, have a look this.

This will add a third element to the exercise that will really accompany the workout and take it to a whole other level or cardio burn.
