How to Boost Your Cardio Workouts in London

Enjoy cardio workouts at the new gym at ESPA Life at Corinthia Hotel London

Cardio workouts are known to burn calories and are said to be one of the best forms of exercise for weight loss, stress reduction and heart health.

Whether it’s running, swimming or biking, cardiovascular workouts are also one of the best ways to get the job done effectively and in less time.

Cardiovascular training involves increasing the heart rate and the breathing rate in order to pump oxygenated blood around the body.

This in turn brings it quickly to the muscles and organs and helps to make the heart and lungs healthier.

This type of exercise can also help improve sleep patterns and anxiety because of the endorphin release.

The American College of Sports Medicine says that healthy adults should perform at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week.

They also advise undertaking 30-60 minutes of low to moderate-intensity exercise per day for five days, or 20-30 minutes of high-intensity exercise three times per week.

Businesswomen who travel often and who like to stay fit on the road may find that an intense and short cardio workout session in their hotel gym, hotel room or outside is their best option when they’re strapped for time on a business trip.

Cardio workouts and high intensity treadmill running workouts may also help combat jet lag and reduce stress levels.

In London, one of our favorite hotels has opened a new, cutting-edge Technogym gymnasium.

With equipment and software by Technogym and this gleaming, luxury new fitness space is cardio workout and strength training heaven.

Guests staying at Corinthia Hotel London and ESPA Life at Corinthia members can now enjoy the very best and latest in cardio training equipment – as well as modern strength training equipment and free weights.

This comprehensive, next generation gym forms part of the hotel’s ESPA Life at Corinthia which expands over four floors within this luxury, central London hotel.

The venue’s treadmills allow runners to try out some of the world’s most famous marathon routes, such as Rome and New York City – with each run route mirroring a specific marathon’s real life landscape.

Runners can duplicate their outdoor runs recorded by third party apps and wearable devices. The treadmills here also adapt the cushioning to the running style of the user.

A ‘Wellness on Demand’ service is offered to guests staying at Corinthia Hotel London whereby they can work out in the privacy and seclusion of their hotel rooms.

They can either use Technogym’s portable cardio and strength equipment, an in-room personal training session or an in-room workout channel offers guests full body workout sessions.

Since this luxury London hotel has the largest room sizes in the capital, space and enjoyment during in-room workouts won’t be compromised.

Otherwise ESPA Life members and Corinthia Hotel London guests can monitor their progress wherever they are in the world by downloading the Technogym app and picking up where they left off.

They can also link their apps to Runkeeper, Strava, Polar, Garmin and MapMyFitness.
