And lots of them. Below we have highlighted how many calories you can expect
to burn performing a number of popular activities.

60 minutes of exercise if your weigh 150 pounds. If you weigh more, you

A great workout for all the muscles of the body. This workout is as hard
as you make it. A compromise between a strength session and an aerobic workout.
Good exercise for toning, strengthening and shaping the legs. Compliment
this exercise with rowing or upper body resistance work.
In general a much gentler form of exercise than the rest. Fresh air and
lots of walking means you can still burn many calories.
Arguably the best exercise for strengthening the heart and lungs and burning
body fat. Ideal for shaping and toning the thighs and calves.
Displays all the benefits of jogging without causing stress via heavy impact
on the knees and back.
A good overall toning session. Works the muscles against added resistance.
Be warned. 60 minutes of continuos swimming can be extremely hard work.
There is more to yoga than just calorie burning. Used for balance, flexibility,
relaxation and strength. Still burns a few calories.
