Working out can be daunting.

Joining a gym when you have no clue what to do with the machines, sounds like a nightmare. Heading to a pilates class where everyone can do “flows” you’ve never even heard of!

That’s where Cozy Cardio comes in. American content creator Hope Zuckerbrow created the idea of low impact workouts.

The TikToker has become known for getting up, getting a protein drink, putting on her favourite movie and a walking pad. Yes, she just walks in her sitting room as she watches TV. Honestly, we think we’ve found our new favourite workout!

We spoke to Hope about Cozy Cardio and why she decided to share it with the world.

Hi Hope! Tell us a bit about Cozy Cardio.

Cozy Cardio was my way of rewriting what exercise meant to me. I wanted to spark joy when it came to movement regardless of the number on the scale. Through this cosy cardio concept, I’ve healed my relationship with exercise so much!

Where did the inspiration come from?

One morning I was up super early (around 5am) because my boyfriend had to leave for work. I already had my coffee in hand, my favourite show was already playing on the TV, and I felt like I couldn’t rest. I wanted to move my body. I hopped on my walking pad and ended up enjoying it so much that I posted a video on TikTok, that video ended up blowing up and cozy cardio was born!

Can everyone get involved?

-Absolutely! Cozy Cardio can be done by the college student who can’t make it to the gym, for the tired Mom who just needs some self-care time, or for the elderly who need low-impact exercises to better their health. Cozy Cardio is most definitely a concept that everyone can join in on.

What would you recommend people start with?

Cozy Cardio is simply a concept. There are no “must-haves” when it comes to a Cozy Cardio session, that being said, my favourites are: my walking pad, candles, cosy outfits, fun beverages, and my favourite TV show or movie.

You have over 1 million followers on TikTok! That must be crazy! Did you ever think that it would become such a phenomenon?

It is absolutely wild and I am so grateful! Honestly, yes, I knew Cozy Cardio could be big from the very beginning. The branding behind the concept was cute but the meaning and motive behind it had the ability to really help people.

What do you hope people get out of Cozy Cardio?

I hope Cozy Cardio helps heal people’s relationships with exercise. I hope it sparks joy for them while moving their bodies. I hope it frees them from the idea that movement is just for shrinking your body, it can simply be for self-care and enjoyment!
