The summer is almost here- which is a great time to get outdoors and try many new sports activities! We promote being healthy and active no matter what you like, but we have also made a list of sports and recreational activities with the amount of calories they burn.
This list was created by Samir Becic, author of the fitness book ReSync Your Life (4X number 1 fitness trainer in America) and HFR team.
- Boxing/ Kickboxing (640 cal/hour): Good upper body workout, coordination builder, and cardiovascular workout.
- Running Fast (800 cal/hour): Good for cardiovascular endurance training.
- Swimming Fast (900 cal/hour): although 200 meters of Butterfly stroke sprint can burn 100 calories in 3 minutes. It is the best full body exercise.
- Rock Climbing (740 cal/hour): Less cardiovascular but very good for building muscle strength and coordination.
- Cycling (700 cal/hour): it’s a great lower body, non-weight bearing exercise workout and cardio training but not much of an upper body workout.
- Racquetball (600 cal/hour): good cardiorespiratory training, coordination-building, and with the twisting and pivoting, builds core flexibility.
- Rowing (560 cal/hour): builds up endurance, strength and muscle in your shoulders, thighs and biceps. The key to rowing is in the technique – coordinate the legs, back and arms to work simultaneously.
- Basketball (630 cal/hour): non-stop action is what makes basketball such a great cardiovascular exercise. The shooting also improves hand-eye coordination.
- Tennis (560 cal/hour): it demands speed, agility, strength and reaction time.
- Cross-country Skiing (480 cal/hour): Being in the snow already fires up your metabolism, and the varied terrain makes for a great interval workout.
- Ice Skating (500 cal/hour): Has all the great benefits of running without the joint stress.
- Swing Dancing (360 cal/hour): a fun, cardiovascular workout with a partner!
- Soccer (competitive) (800 cal/hour): a very high intensity running sport, it offers a great interval and sprinting regimen.
- Golf (250 cal/hour): walking with your clubs (no golf cart!)
Thank you for sharing these pointers. I think I could do cycling and swing dancing. 😀
Thing is, I’m trying to lose a little extra fat (especially those that are around the areas of my waist) was thinking about spot workouts like what this article shared https://greatbigminds.com/4-minutes-best-exercise-to-lose-belly-fat-you-can-do-at-home/. Do you think besides sportings, would these spot workouts work ?
Ich liebe das Rudern, danke für die Vorteile von allen.

Swimming is the BEST! I’m always in the pool. Do you have any articles about meals? I’m always active but have a hard time keeping my diet in check. I found this website recently and am really thinking about trying the program.
