5 Fun Ways to Sneak in Exercise Every Day

Staying active and working out is a great way of life, but it doesn’t always need to happen inside of the gym. From walking the dog to playing with kids, we found five daily activities that will help you burn calories every day.


Make the best of your time with those kiddos. Get in a game of hide-and-go-seek, hopscotch or a hula hoop contest. Not only a great way to connect with your family, but you’ll burn up to 400 calories.


Get Your Hands Dirty

Whether it’s prepping your garden for spring or keeping the lawn manicured, gardening is a fantastic way to get physical. Grow your own garden to eat healthier and burn off an extra 105 calories per 25 minutes.

Stand Up

Spend 40 minutes of your day at work standing, not sitting at your desk to burn off extra calories and give your body some much-needed stretching. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

Grab The Leash

Your furry friend needs exercise too! Take your dog out for a walk each evening after dinner and watch your fat burn increase. An hour long stroll around the neighborhood can burn up to 100 calories.

Turn Up The Volume

Kick on your favorite playlist and dance for 25 minutes. Whether you’re a seasoned salsa dancer or move to beat of your own drum, you’re sure to break a sweat. Have the kids join in for a family dance off!
