According to Nutristrategy, an average 58kg person swimming for an hour can burn 413 calories. Take a walk You might not consider it as exercise but the walk you do while busy shopping in the mall is actually a workout. The fact that you’re moving is a good way to burn fat. A person who weighs 54kg and walks for 30 minutes loses an average of 80 calories. Play with the kids Being active with your kids can be a great form of exercise. Playing hide and seek or ‘catch me if you can’ is good for your body and keeps you young. Toss a ball Playing in the sun is fun, so why not try volleyball with friends when you’re at the beach? You will tone your body, add strength and agility while having fun. Playing 45 minutes of volleyball can burn up to 585 calories. Squat while making tea You might think this is funny or weird but it’s a 2-minute wait while the kettle boils so why not squat? It can do wonders for your glutes and give you great legs and tight buns.
