Flexibility

I find something that really makes cardio exercise much more enjoyable is to first improve flexibility, then strength, and then increase cardio.

MORE INFORMATION:
Since cardio exercises are associated with weight loss, it is easy to become focused on the scale and forget about the other two aspects of fitness. Being flexible and strong makes cardio exercise much less of an ordeal so walking, biking, etc. becomes more pleasant when the body moves with ease.

    Love this. I'm guilty of focusing on the cario only. I need to not forget about the flexibility and strength. Thanks.
