When it comes to losing weight, we all know the importance of cutting back on calories, but it’s also important to increase your physical activity. Whether it’s cardio, weightlifting, or just casual everyday activity, it all plays a crucial role in burning calories. How much activity does it take to burn off 100 calories? Let’s take a look.

  • Walking. Get out and enjoy the weather while you can. Taking just a 30-minute walk at a moderate pace can burn 100 calories! Take it at your own pace and enjoy it. A daily walk is good for physical and mental health.

  • Hiking. Take your walk to the next level and hike the local trails. Depending on the difficulty, it can only take 20-30 minutes to burn 100 calories. As a bonus, you’ll see beautiful scenery that you might not see when walking through the streets of your neighborhood.

  • Aerobic Dancing. Anyone who says fitness can’t be fun has never tried aerobic dancing. Try a class at a local fitness center, or check out a video online. You can burn up to 100 calories in just 15 minutes while having a blast!

  • Running Stairs. When the weather is keeping you inside, take your fitness to the stairs! 10 minutes of running up and down your stairs can burn at least 100 calories. We just recommend that you be careful when performing this. You can also run stairs on a stair stepper at the gym.

  • Swimming. When you’re looking for a full-body cardio workout, there are very few activities as beneficial as swimming. When performed correctly, just 10-15 minutes of swimming can burn a hefty load of calories.

  • Cycling. Hop on the bicycle or indoor stationary bike and get those legs working! Cycling is another great low-impact cardio exercise that provides great results. With just 15-20 minutes of moderate cycling, you can burn over 100 calories.

  • Weightlifting. Perhaps you’re just looking to lift some weights. 30 minutes of light to moderate weight lifting will burn the calories and help you build lean muscle mass.

  • Jumping Rope. Contrary to what many people believe, jumping rope is a fantastic body workout that helps build coordination, strength, and endurance. Turn on some upbeat music and get jumping for 10 minutes to burn up to 100 calories!

These are just a few ways to burn 100 calories when you’re looking for easy fitness additions to your day. Mix them in with your routine to see an improvement in your fitness!
