60 minute calorie BURN

So what if you’re in the midst of a Minnesota winter? That’s no excuse for not burning away those calories! Try some low-impact aerobic stepping while watching your favorite TV show, get on that dusty exercise bike and ride, or enroll in a local zumba class. Structured exercise not for you? Try rearranging your furniture, get out and shovel some snow, go bowling, or put a little zip into your housework.

Still not interested? Take a shopping trip, read a book, or say “yes” to your husband! Even your favorite things can equal calories burned!

See how your favorite activities stack up on the burn scale:
