Cozy cardio is all about taking the stress off your workout routine and approaching fitness with a gentler and more nurturing mindset. This trend is all about reframing cardio by associating it with things you truly enjoy, whether it’s doing laid-back exercises that don’t put too much pressure on your body or wearing a chic outfit and drinking your favorite pre-workout beverage.

These motivational techniques are not a novelty in the world of fitness, and people have been relying on them for a long time. Even though “cozy cardio” has been around forever, TikTok creator Hope Zuckerbrow deserves the credit for coining this viral term to explain her relaxed approach to fitness.

“I wanted to take the weight back off in a way that felt good to me, not like punishment — I’m a cozy girl to the core. I love feeling comfortable no matter what I’m doing, and cozy cardio has deeply improved my relationship with my body and exercise,” she told The Post.
