Do you play any sports for cardio???

Hey Folks,

Treadmills, elliptical trainers, bikes etc can get incredibly dull for cardio. Recently i've been playing lots of squash, badminton and tennis for cardio - certainly more fun!

Do you play any sports for your cardio? Or are you all treadmill bunnies?

    I do both. I play football about once a week and that's probably better than my cardio workout because we play for like 3 sometimes 4 hours until we can't even walk properly anymore.I also go to a boxing class at my gym which is a really tough fitness test. It's much easier to push yourself hard when someone is motivating you. I'm also a martial artist and in my Taekwondo class we do a lot of cardio.
    I go on the treadmill like 3 or 4 times a week. I don't find it enjoyable but I don't really find it boring either. When i'm on the treadmill I usually think of something else happening in my life while running and this helps the time pass quickly. What is important is not to really concentrate on the time during the whole run as this will make it very boring and tiring.

    i do kikboxing once/twice per week where the make us do quite a bit of cardio and ive taken up running recently to do the Great north Run and maybe the London marathon next year.
    I find doing stuff like this is a lot more motivating then going to the gym to sit on a bike or run on the treadmill.. it def does get boring!
