Increasing the heart rate enhances the body’s ability to burn fat. Take a steady 30 minute walk for instance, this is going to gradually increase your heart rate, resulting in the need for our heart to supply more oxygen to our muscles. This means our bodies are going to have work harder & use more energy. (Also known as burning fat!)

With the increase of oxygen supply to our muscles, it offers other positive effects such as an increase in strength, this means we can train for a lot longer whilst still achieving those goals! Meaning we become fitter, win win!
