Aerobic is any physical activity that requires the heart and lungs to work harder to meet the body’s increased oxygen demand. Cardio exercise is any exercise that raises your heart rate. You can accomplish this by speed walking, running or using any piece of cardio equipment of your choice. You do not have to have fancy dance movements and follow the beat of music to get a great workout.
