Cardiorespiratory training is crucial due to the importance of strengthening the heart muscle fiber, and improving blood circulation throughout the entire body. The cardiac tissue is responsible for providing every cell in the body with the oxygen needed to function effectively. Without oxygen, microscopic cells and tissues break down. These cells compose every aspect of the body – the brain, the muscles, the organs, the joints, the connective fibers in the body, the skeleton and the nervous system. Cardiovascular training increasing longevity and improves our quality of life.
Cardiorespiratory exercise must be specific to each individual’s needs and goals. (If a person is taking beta-blockers or any medication that affects the heart rate, this must be taken into account. Do not engage in a cardiac training program without a medical recommendation from your doctor if you have had a history of heart disease.)

Stage Training creates a balanced cardiovascular program which fits your own health history, needs, and goals. It is a systematic progression which is safe and effective.
