CD Listing :: Cardio Classics

Orchestral Workout
ABC Classics cat. no. ABC 476 3223

Great music will transform your exercise experience! This carefully constructed album offers a real alternative to the standard gym 'doof-doof'. It includes tracks for warming up and cooling down. The disc features a 25-minute 'walk' set, at a steadier pace than the 25-minute 'run' bracket, either of which could also be a suitable accompaniment for a floor class. Power up hills to the beat of Carmina burana, or be inspired to stride out to the joyful strains of Vivaldi. This disc is a perfect opportunity to capitalise on those New Year good intentions!
