Burn calories with a cardio workout 2 June 2021

Led by Jordan, this 30-minute session is for over 60s who are looking to get fitter and burn calories with a cardio workout.

In today’s session, you’ll be doing sprint cardio. Over the course of 12 rounds, you’ll be working through four aerobic movements. You’ll be getting the same amount of rest as you are working. This means you’ll be able to work at a higher intensity due to the amount of recovery you are given. However, as always, feel free to work at your own pace for an easier and more relaxing workout. It’s completely up to you. The benefits of sprint cardio include improved oxygen consumption, a lower resting heart rate and blood pressure. You’ll also have an increased metabolic rate for hours after the workout ends. Not only will it make you fitter but you’ll also burn a lot of calories. This can help with weight loss. After all the hard work, you’ll be rewarded with a relaxing stretch to cool down.

We’d love to have your comments on this session and how it helps you get fit and burn calories with a cardio workout. Don’t forget to subscribe to the Fit For Good YouTube Channel! Please do consider donating to Fit For Good to help us continue to provide FREE sessions.

What is Fit For Good?

Research supports the fact that regular exercise is vital to good health and helps control the ageing process. Fit For Good sessions are specifically designed to help men and women over 60 take more control over how they age, and enjoy becoming more mobile, stable and socially active.

Although we all understand that exercise is essential for living well into old age, it’s hard to find a way to make it part of daily life. Fit For Good sessions aim to help you enjoy healthier, happier ageing. Our professional trainers guide you. During each workout, you gain strength, balance, flexibility and stamina. You work at your own pace and your own ability – although it’s always good to push yourself just slightly to gain maximum benefit.

Fit For Good online sessions are a convenient, enjoyable way of improving your fitness and helping to increase your strength, stability and balance.

To make the most of each session:

  • Position your computer, laptop, iPad or phone on a stable surface near where you will be working. If you can get YouTube on your television, that's another option
  • Check the floor where you are exercising is not slippery and that there is nothing you could trip over
  • Wear loose clothing and comfortable trainers or shoes
  • Keep a glass or bottle of water to hand to ensure you stay hydrated
  • Have a chair or other stable object to hold onto if necessary
  • Place your weights - whether they are actual dumbbells, cans of beans, bottles of water or whatever works for you - where you can easily reach them, but won't trip over them
  • Exercise within your comfort zone, pausing the video whenever you need to rest or hydrate
  • Play background music if it helps you relax


If you're enjoying Fit For Good online sessions, we’d love to see you via photos or videos – we're regularly asked by news sources for images of people doing the sessions. Perhaps someone in your household has a phone and could take pictures or a video clip? Please send them here.
