At UFitness we offer a wide array of cardiovascular endurance equipment to meet the needs of our members.
Cardiovascular training is physical training to strengthen your heart and increase your lung capacity. And as you strengthen your heart and lungs, you receive a number of other benefits:
- Building up the heart muscle enables the body to better take in and process oxygen.
- Maintaining a healthy heart is a priority when confronted by such health risks as a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, cholesterol and diabetes.
- It contributes to weight loss, particularly by promoting fat loss (especially belly fat) in favor of muscle mass.
- When performing cardio exercises properly, you will strengthen other muscles, too, such as arms, legs, abs and lumbar muscles, developing a slender, sculpted figure.
- It fortifies the arteries and reduces the risk of hypertension and infarction.
- It stimulates immune defenses.
- It lifts the spirits and helps to fight against stress, negative thoughts, and even depression.

At UFitness we offer a state of the art spin class experience. Classes are available through the UFitness app.
Spin class is a great way to burn calories. An hour-long spin class can burn anywhere from 600-1000 calories depending on the intensity of the instructor and the amount that you push yourself. It relies on a combination of fast-paced cycling and strategic lighter rest intervals to get you recovered for the next burst.
