Cardio Theater

Most people like watching movies, but not everyone likes working out. That’s why gyms across the country are combining the two in hopes of getting more people moving.

Cardio theaters are popping up everywhere, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they’re pretty popular with gym goers. Instead of listening to whatever music the gym plays or fighting to keep your headphones in your ears, you can now watch an upbeat comedy or action movie as you work to shed the pounds.

To make the experience feel just like a movie theater, the gyms invest in big screens, good sound systems, and dim lights. They also get special rights that allow them to legally show the films. It allows people to get lost in the movie instead of focusing on their workout, which means more time spent actually exercising.
