Feel the burn with Winter Sports
Looking to maintain a proper weight, or maybe shed a pound or two? It’s real easy, set a goal of 30 minutes every day. In that 30 minutes, just get active! Getting active will improve your health, and get the blood flowing. And I am beyond convinced that exercise is the fountain of youth, well that and laughter.
Participating in winter sports can be a great way to burn off the calories, and even get the whole family involved.
In one hour, a 155-160 pound person can burn:
*600 calories snowshoeing
*563 calories playing ice hockey
*511 calories ice skating
*400 calories shovelling snow by hand
*511 calories cross country skiing
*365 calories downhill skiing
And if it’s been a little mild out, and you have no snow, try:
*281 calories bicycling
*211 calories walking the dog
*580 calories stair climbing
*1,110 running 6 miles within an hour
Let 2012, be the year that you take charge of your health! Remember, it’s you that needs to make the decision. No one can make it for you. Just like no one can move you, you need to move yourself.
