Aerobics is a dance form that is beneficial for body fitness. The word “Aerobics” refers to “oxygen”. Aerobics is a physical activity and makes your heart beat fast and helps you sweat. In aerobics dancing, the exercise is done with the help of music which could be country music as well as hip-hop. This exercise can easily be done indoors which makes it a year-round activity.
  • Aerobic exercise is also known as "cardio" - exercise that needs pumping of oxygenated blood from the heart to working muscles.
  • Aerobic exercise stimulates the breathing rate and heart rate to increase in a way that can be constant for the exercise session. In contrast, anaerobic ("without oxygen") exercises are activities that causes you to be quickly out of breath, like sprinting or lifting a heavy weight.
  • Examples of aerobic exercises include cardio machines, spinning, running, swimming, walking, hiking, aerobics classes, dancing, cross country skiing, and kickboxing. There are many other types.
  • Aerobic exercises can become anaerobic exercises if performed at a level of intensity that is too high.
  • Aerobic exercise not only improves fitness; it also has known benefits for both physical and emotional health.
  • Aerobic exercise can help prevent or reduce the chance of developing some cancers, diabetes, depression, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis.
  • An aerobic exercise plan should be simple, practical, and realistic. Specific equipment (such as cardio machines) may be used but is not necessary for successful aerobic exercise.

Aerobic Exercise for Weight Loss

Viewer question: I’ve heard that exercising at a lower heart rate burns more fat but fewer calories than exercising at a higher heart rate. Which form of exercise (slow or fast) will help me lose weight the fastest?
Author’s response: At lower intensities of exercise, muscles burn a higher percentage of fat than carbohydrate, but not necessarily more total fat, or more total calories, than at higher intensities. This is a subtle distinction, but it’s an important one. Here’s some background to help understand why.

What is aerobic exercise?

Imagine that you’re exercising. You’re working up a sweat, you’re breathing hard, your heart is thumping, blood is coursing through your vessels to deliver oxygen to the muscles to keep you moving, and you sustain the activity for more than just a few minutes. That’s aerobic exercise (also known as “cardio” in gym lingo), which is any activity that you can sustain for more than just a few minutes while your heart, lungs, and muscles work overtime. In this article, I’ll discuss the mechanisms of aerobic exercise: oxygen transport and consumption, the role of the heart and the muscles, the proven benefits of aerobic exercise, how much you need to do to reap the benefits, and more.
