Fitness World Launches Series of Free Cardio Classes for Heart Health Month

Elevating Heart Health through Accessible Fitness in BC

BC based Fitness World, announced last week the launch of its #IHeartHealthFW campaign in acknowledgment of Heart Health Month in February. 


In Canada, heart disease is the 2nd leading cause of death, and a staggering nine out of ten Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Remarkably, nearly 80% of premature heart disease and stroke cases can be averted by adopting healthy behaviors with regular exercise being the leading prevention tool. Experts recommend combining aerobic exercise and resistance training to produce the greatest benefit for preventing and managing heart disease. It is advised to have at least 30 minutes a day of light activity, 75 minutes a week of vigorous activity, and 2 sessions a week of resistance training to boost your overall heart health. In light of these compelling statistics, Fitness World has dedicated itself to providing individuals with the knowledge and resources to prioritize and enhance their cardiovascular well-being. 


Throughout the month of February, Fitness World is offering free Heart Health Cardio Classes on its YouTube channel, aimed at promoting heart health and encouraging individuals to prioritize cardiovascular fitness. Triple Threatis one of these classes, offering equal parts cardio conditioning, strength, and flexibility to turn the participant into a true fitness triple threat. These dynamic classes are strategically designed to elevate heart rates, stimulate blood circulation, and provide a tailored and effective approach to enhancing cardiovascular well-being.


Designed and led by experienced fitness class instructors at Fitness World, the free online Heart Health Cardio Classes aim to break down barriers to fitness by providing engaging and accessible workouts.


Chris Smith, President and CEO of Fitness World Canada, emphasizes:

“I am passionate about exercise as preventive medicine. Regular cardio exercise is essential to protecting your heart from disease and I believe everyone should have access to that. Our free Cardio Classes are a great tool for our communities, designed to provide engaging and accessible workouts for participants of all fitness levels.
