Cardio Classes

Cardio workouts are essential for your health and well being. Our bodies were made to move! Every time you head to the gym for a cardio workout, you are making it easier to reach your health and wellness goals. Your cardiovascular system, which includes your heart and blood vessels, need exercise too! Doing a cardio workout on your own, such as walking or running, or taking a Group Exercise class like BodyCombat or Zumba, means you are helping pump more blood through your cardiovascular system, pushing oxygen and nutrients along the way – leading to better health.


Cardio workouts help you lose weight, strengthen your heart (which is a muscle), decrease stress or anxiety and ultimately alleviate symptoms of depression. Pinnacle Health + Fitness offers a variety of cardio classes that can easily be incorporated into your workout regimen.
