Walking is an easy way to start moving! It’s a low impact exercise that won’t stress your joints and you don’t need to buy any equipment — just a comfortable sports bra and pair of shoes. Thirty minutes of walking at a moderate pace can burn approx. 175 calories.
A 12-week study found that women who walked for 50 to 70 minutes three times per week reduced their body fat an average of 1.5%.
Start by walking three to four times a week. Walk during your lunch break, walk up and down stairs, or take long walks with your dog. You can even try hiking once you’re used to the activity. You’ll improve your endurance, making it easier to try other exercises!
Jogging (four to six miles per hour) and running (six miles per hour plus) are great ways to get fit. You can burn approx. 290 calories per 30 minutes of jogging and 360 calories per 30 minutes of running. This activity will burn visceral fat, reducing the likelihood of developing heart disease and diabetes.
Start jogging about three to four times per week, giving yourself about 20 to 30 minutes. You can either run at a gym or outside, whatever you prefer. Running outside can boost your energy and positivity thanks to being out in the sun. You can also run trails for more variety or track your distance on a treadmill at the gym.
Cycling has become popular thanks to how fun it is and how impactful it is on getting fit and weight loss. There are a lot of cycling classes these days that will energize you with a motivational instructor, challenging routines, and energetic music. You can also use a stationary bike at your own pace while watching your favorite television program. Cycling outside is another option — you’ll just need the right bike and equipment.
You can burn approx. 250 calories per 30 minutes on a stationary bike. Cycling has been proven to improve your overall fitness, increase insulin sensitivity ,and lower your risk of heart disease, cancer, and death.
It’s a low impact activity that’s great for all fitness levels. It may hurt your bum a little bit, but that’s what padded shorts are for!
Whether you’re learning video dance routines at home or taking dance classes, this is a fun way to do cardio while also improving your balance and coordination. It’s also great motivation since you’ll be practicing the same routine with the same group of people each time.
Dancing can also build confidence, making you feel sexy and strong. You can choose from a variety of dance styles as well, letting the music guide you and keep you smiling throughout! Feeling happy and sexy? Sign me up!
We couldn’t let cardio have all the credit! Weight training is another impactful way to start getting fit while also gaining muscles, confidence, and strength. You can burn approx. 100 calories per 30 minutes of weight training while also promoting muscle growth and raising your resting metabolic rate.
There was actually a study that showed doing 11 minutes of strength-based exercise three times per week resulted in a 7.4% increase in metabolic rate. That’s the equivalent to burning 125 calories per day — but without moving!
