9 Fun Ways to Burn 100 Calories

Shedding a few extra calories doesn’t have to be hard work! In the gym, we talk a lot about lifestyle change. Effective lifestyle change starts with manageable, meaningful improvements in the decision making process. But, everything in life doesn’t have to be so complicated. It’s the perfect time of year to get out, get active, and enjoy the company of others.

#1 Burn: Two-Wheel ItRemember when you were young and rode your bike everywhere you wanted to go? One of the most fun modes of transportation, biking lets you feel the wind and experience the world around you in ways that are impossible when driving a car or sitting on a bus. Hop on your beloved two-wheeler for 15 minutes or more, keep the pedals moving and you’ll cut 100 calories, just like that!

#2 Burn: Grab a Club

Walking an entire 18-hole golf course is a great way to burn a lot of calories. Not interested in hunting down your lost ball in the woods? No problem. A round of miniature golf may not seem intense, but it’s enough to get rid of 100 calories. Act goofy the whole time to embarrass your kids and you’ll burn even more!

#3 Burn: Climb On

Feeling particularly adventurous or ready to try something new? Slip on some climbing shoes and hit your local climbing wall. And don’t worry—you don’t have to climb hundreds of feet to drop 100 calories. You’ll get rid of that many calories in less than 10 minutes. Just be careful: climbing is a great workout that is highly addictive.

#4 Burn: Stand Tall (and Get Wet)

Want to stay cool while you burn 100 calories? Hop in the boat for an afternoon of water skiing. You’ll leave 100 calories in your wake after just 15 minutes of skiing and every minute after gets rid of even more—all while you don’t break a sweat.

#5 Burn: Hit the Mits

Have you ever wanted to give boxing a shot? Mix it up with a partner and practice a little stress relief. You’ll break a sweat in minutes and be well on your way to a fun, incredibly effective workout. Did you know Health & Fitness Specialist Lamar Moore specializes in mixed martial arts?

#6 Burn: Get Down in the Dirt

You want to eat better and get fit at the same time. Well, here’s the good news: you can do both by planting your own garden. Did you hear that, Barb?! Within the first 25 minutes of digging and planting, 100 calories will go out the window, and when your veggies peek out of the ground, your diet will take a giant step in the right direction.

#7 Burn: Follow Evie’s lead and just Dance!

Even people who hate dancing in public smile while dancing at home with a loved one. Act like a loony for few songs in a row and you can have peace of mind knowing you just shook 100 calories from your shrinking frame. Now that’s something to dance about! Move your body and have some fun doing it.

#8 Burn: Fly High

Trampolines aren’t just for kids. They’re for anyone who wants to burn 100 calories in just half an hour, while pumping nutrients through your joints, and strengthening the spinal column. The next time you see the kids bouncing around, jump in!

#9 Burn: Head to the Mall

Your friends won’t believe you, but the next time you go the mall, tell them you’re going so you can burn some calories. Even if you’re there for just a little while, keeping up a steady shopping pace for 40 minutes is enough to get rid of 100 calories, or more (especially if you shop like Katie)
