Bust a Move Dancing is a great way to burn extra calories, and you’ll never get bored hitting the dance floor with your friends. Try dancing classes like Zumba and Salsa, or even head out to your favorite club. As long as you’re dancing enough to break a sweat and get into an aerobic zone, you’ll be getting the benefits. Play Catch What you throw and who you play with doesn’t matter. Head out to the park with your dog to toss a tennis ball around, or grab a Frisbee and start up a volley with friends. The running and jumping that accompanies a game of catch is sure to work your lower body and burn excess fat. Ride a Bike Cycling is wonderful for cardio and lower body exercise. Riding around town is a great way to get started, but taking to the trails with a mountain bike will increase the quality of your workout.
