Did you know that hula hooping can burn seven calories per minute? It’s good for your heart and provides an intense workout for your core. Strap on
a pair of roller skates or blades and burn up to 300-800 calories an hour, depending on your speed and skill. An hour-long barre class can work off 300-600 calories even as it lengthens and strengthens your body. Working out needn’t be a chore. Here are some suggestions for infusing fun into your exercise routine by saying goodbye to the humdrum workout.
