Hate To Run?

Hate To Run? Lots of people do. The good news is, you don't have to run for your cardio workout. You still need to perform some type of cardio training, though, as cardio is the best way to keep your heart strong.

Here are some fun alternatives to running that will strengthen your heart and burn calories.
Have fun and stay fit!

Bike

Take an easy 20 minute bike ride and you'll not only strengthen your heart and have fun, you'll burn the same amount of calories as running for 10 minutes.

Play A Sport

Have some fun while you burn the same amount of calories as a 20 minute run! Try:

Tennis

Basketball

Flag Football

Soccer

Lacrosse

Hockey

Jump Rope

You can burn the same amount of calories by jumping rope as you can by running. Jumping rope is easy to do, inexpensive and you can do it just about anywhere. Boxers do it...and have you ever seen a fat boxer?

  • I had given up on losing weight. I had just accepted I was overweight...it was in my genes. I thought if I didn't eat as much or eat just 2 meals I would lose weight, but I ended up steadily gaining until I started iBodyFit...
