Cardiovascular activity increases both heart rate and oxygen consumption. As well as improving fitness levels and boosting metabolism, cardio workouts have also been shown to enhance brain functioning in areas such as memory and learning.


Take to the barre for a high-energy dance workout, try out circuit training in the gym or opt for high intensity interval training (HIIT). One of the most popular cardio workouts on the fitness scene, HIIT is a favourite among personal trainers; hailed for its fat-burning benefits and reduced workout time. Motivational group sessions are ideal for this kind of workout, or for those who prefer to exercise at home, HIIT also be done via online videos such as this 45-minute Barry's Bootcamp-style workout.

what to look for

High-intensity training requires kit that is comfortable and sweat-wicking. In order to push yourself during workouts, Sweaty Betty recommends lightweight tops, supportive sports bras and fitted, high-stretch bottoms that allow for greater freedom of movement from track to treadmill.

Sports bras designed for impact – assess whether your workout is medium or high-impact, then shop for the appropriate bra. When in doubt, visit the bra guide.


Sweat-wicking tops and bottoms that remove moisture from the body and dry quickly to keep you cool and comfortable.


High-stretch capability in both tops and bottoms for an unrestricted workout in terms of movement and flexibility. Don't waste energy fighting the fabric, choose high-stretch pieces and focus your efforts on training.


Functional designs including anti-chafe flatlocked seams. Compression fabric will enhance performance and aid recovery.


Trainers – Working out in specifically-designed footwear ensures maximum comfort and performance. Use the trainer guide to find the ideal style for your sport and gait.


The must-have accessories from water bottles to kit bags to runner's pockets.
