Now that the Summer Olympic Games are here, it's time to get physical. Does watching the Olympics motivate you? Get out there and burn some calories to lose weight and feel great.
No need to watch on the sidelines anymore when you can challenge yourself to be an Olympian at home.
No pain, no gain
What follows is how many calories you can burn by doing exercises you typically see during the Olympics. The number of calories listed are how many a 150-lb. person can burn when performing each exercise for 30 minutes--a great start for cardiovascular fitness. Doing cardiovascular exercise at least 30 minutes a day a few times per week will keep you in shape and keep the extra weight off.
Here are just some of the fun exercises you can do to stay fit and healthy:
Walk: 4 mph (15 min/mi)
Running: 5.2 mph (11.5 min/mile)
