    Cardio

    Cardiovascular exercise

    The best compliment to your weekly routine

    It is natural to link Cardio exercises to weight loss and wanting to look and feel good. Although these are common results, we forget that moving around increases blood flow to our muscles, strengthens the heart and lungs, and teaches the heart to work more efficiently.

    According to the New Zealand Health Department, it is recommended at least 2½ hours of moderate exercise or 1¼ hours of vigorous physical activity spread throughout the week to develop and maintain cardiorespiratory, musculoskeletal, and neuromotor fitness in apparently healthy adults. For weight loss, they say you might need more depending on your diet and daily habits. They highlight that the best physical activity to do involves raising the heart rate, making breathing harder than normal, like aerobic activities.

    Eating and Activity Guidelines for New Zealand Adults

    A dreaded word or a passion you can`t get enough of, Cardio is undoubtedly a key component of our exercise routine and provides a number of benefits we all need in order to remain functional and healthy. At Kia Kaha Studios, we decided to make this precious time of your weekly routine FUN. We offer two styles of Cardio exercises –  HIIT and Dance FIT. Both of which will make you leave happier and lighter, sweaty and groovy!

    FuncHIIT will be for those who are dedicated to making the most of their time and get a full body extreme workout in. DanceFIT will be for those that want a bit of fun in their life while exercising.

    Main Reasons for doing Cardio Exercise

    Far from a chore, take our Cardio classes as a time to look after yourself, release stress, boost your mood and increase your energy levels.

    • HIIT helps stimulate the production of HGH, Human Growth Hormone. HGH slows down ageing by increasing exercise capacity, increasing bone density, increasing muscle mass, and decreasing body fat. In contrast, overdoing long bouts of traditional cardio can actually damage your mitochondria and accelerate ageing. Sourced from Stokes KA et al. The time course of the human growth hormone response to a 6s and 30s cycle ergometer sprint. J Sports sci. 2002

Then again at Kia Kaha we just think more movement in the body and stillness in the mind is a great thing so as long as you’re getting what you need... but for more information how you can attain your goals faster come on in and see what’s possible.

    • So simple and yet so true. We often take our health as a given... till it’s not there. While these words may not resonate with you now, or they might just wash past your consciousness as your attention is on other important matters since we are all so busy. All others matters will become a lot less important if your body doesn’t operate as it should. Whether it be #backpain, #kneepain, #shoulder or #illness, how we treat our bodies greatly affects our likelihood of #injury or illness. It’s not a massive task if small changes are done frequently.. sit then becomes habit and you become one of #thosepeople 😱😱😬 .

    DanceFIT

    DanceFIT is a Dance and Cardio workout class designed to lose weight, improve your range of movement, balance, coordination and brain function. Move and groove to sound beats ranging from Latin to mainstream. Prepare to have fun and break a sweat. Suitable for everyone, even if you think you have two left feet.

    HIIT

    This class workout uses functional movements with HIIT which stands for High-Intensity Interval Training. It’s a workout that uses short, intense activity bursts followed by brief recovery periods that kick your metabolism into overdrive, creating an oxygen debt so that your body keeps burning calories hours later. It’s the best way to get fast results, accelerating fat burning and maximising weight loss. Additionally, it’s a full body workout to build serious cardio fitness while improving functional strength, as well as a toned and invigorated mind and body. Expect medium to high impact movement using weighted props, resistance equipment and body weight.
