Cardio at the movies

CNN reports on the benefits of cardio cinema, a new fitness trend in an interview with Sabrina M. Strickland, MD, sports medicine surgeon at HSS, as part of their Staying Well series.

“Cardio cinema is watching a movie while you do low impact exercise. The benefit of pairing a movie with fitness equipment is another way to distract you while you are working out. Cardio cinema can increase endurance because chances are you are going to do it longer. You're going to want to see what happens in the movie,” said Dr. Strickland. 

This segment aired on broadcast on April 8 and 9 and available at cnn.com.
