Cardio without running

Since we’ve lived  in a beach town for many years and the  the beach was only a few miles away over a very scenic causeway, we ran often and it was exhilarating.

I used to  run a lot at Ft. Bragg when I served in the Airborne, also. Different scenario, but still good.

While I am not opposed to running even now, however, after a partially torn Achilles tendon, I replaced running with other forms of exercise for cardio, as the title above says.

There are many ways to do cardio without running, but my favorites are sled pulls and macefit training.

When I post to social media I use the tag #cardiowithoutrunning as you might expect.

What I looked for was a way to not pound my knee joints and not take all day to get the job done.
Here’s a few exercises we use at the Cave.

I was the owner of the Cave, a strength-based, veteran-owned, unconventional coaching facility, which closed on May 31, 2022 after almost 12 years. My full focus is now on bringing our steelclub and mace training called Mace Fit out to the public. Follow us at and @2slingsteel.
