If i did that, I don't think I'd be as motivated to do the higher intensity exercise. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Haha change your streak! Aim for 10 minutes of any kind of exercise, this way you haven't broken it yet :)

Oh. Guess I broke my fitness streak then, my goal is to do at least 10 mins of cardio. That kind of sucks. emoticon Thank you for your quick response though!

I have a fitness streak too, and I do Pilates or Yoga on my "rest" days - and yes they absolutely count...not as cardio but as a fitness activity in general. Yay us!

Hi,

Pilates is more core based and does not have a cardio component BUT you can still get fitness points credit by tracking this activity in your fitness Quick Tracker.

So, I want to keep my streak of fitness up, but I know I need a rest day, as I have done high intensity workouts Sunday through til Thursday, and I mean 4-6 mile runs and heavy cross training in the gym. I've done 20 mins of pilates-does this count as cardio? It's a fitness activity right?
