10 Natural Cheats to Burn Calories: No Gym Required

Just like what the title describes. You can burn fat and calories even without going to the gym.

Yes, it is true! You can still stay active and fit without having to go to the gym. In point of fact, there are so many ways of staying healthy, active and fit naturally. Multiple trips to the gym in a week is only one part of it, but not to say that it is something that can be done naturally. Sometimes, the thought of going to the gym itself can be quite a letdown. You are tired even to make a trip there and wonder for anything that takes less time and more enjoyable to avoid you from getting bored and sleepy. I know, not everyone fancy going to the gym. So, here are some of the things that you can do alternatively:

30 minutes cycling around the neighborhood (300 calories) = 15 minutes of “body combat” practice

One of the obvious reasons why you should cycle around the neighborhood rather than doing so in a gym is of course, the environment. Cycling around your hometown, around the park, and in case you live near to places where greeneries are a generous attribution will give you a better bonus. First is that you would not realized how far have you cycled (which most of the time is more than you expected) because there are so many things to see and distract you from focusing on your cycling alone. Second is that you will get more fresh air and the landscape will help you to regulate your cycle pattern. It will be flexible and inclusive of low, medium and high impact.

30 minutes of dancing of medium impact (175 calories) = 30 minutes of yoga

Are you a fan of dancing? If you say the answer is yes, then it would be a trouble if you do not go to the gym to workout. You might find dancing as a much more interesting and a fun thing to do and that is all the better. You will burn a substantial amount of calories while dancing and it can definitely keep you healthy and active. Yes, it is just as good as going to the gym.

10 minutes stairs climbing (84 calories) = 9 minutes of sit-ups

It will seem a little too impossible for someone to choose on climbing the stairs for the whole of ten minutes, unless your situation requires you to do so (when you live on the 10th floor and the lift is out of service). However, that does not mean this method would not work. Always try to choose using the stairs rather than the escalator or the lift. Climbing the stairs on a moderate pace to the third floor can burn for you more or less 15 calories. Which means, by doing this 5 times a day will burn you 75 calories! That is partly the reason as to why you should not underestimate the power of stairs climbing
