1. Dancing

Whether you're into Zumba, line dancing, or dance fitness, continuous dancing that moves your body qualifies as cardio. Dancing improves balance, strengthens many huge muscle groups, and enhances your spirits, in addition to raising your heart rate. If you do it with a partner or a group, additionally you'll get a social and physical workout too.

2. Brisk Walking

Although brisk walking is a less intensive form of aerobic exercise than jogging, it is still a very useful workout that raises your heart rate and works your muscles. Brisk walking also has the advantage of causing less impact on your joints than running, so if you have weak knees or ankles, brisk walking will be a far better choice of exercise than jogging.
