Dr. Michael Emery, a sports cardiologist, tells his patients that there is one magic pill that can improve nearly every aspect of your health and well-being, and especially your cardiovascular health. “It’s just that you can’t swallow it, you have to earn it,” said Dr. Emery, an assistant professor of clinical medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine. That magic pill is exercise.

No matter how small the dose, the New York Times reports, exercise is the one “medicine” that always works for building heart health. Getting moving is step one.

Step two is working for the ideal combination of two-and-a-half total hours of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise and one total hour of resistance training per week. Here at Six°, you’ll find aerobic exercise in our Advanced Reformer Pilates, TRX/Circuit, Tabata, Cardio Dance, and Six° Barre classes, and resistance training in Every.Single.Class. Join us for three classes a week, and you’ll build community connections and heart health!

  1. Great post! Yes, there are plenty of cardio options at Six Degrees. Piloxing (my absolute fav) will get your heart pumping with it’s unique fusion and interval format. More efficient than steady-state cardio and more FUN!
