Here's a list of random ways to burn between 100 and 400 calories without going to the gym. It's a reminder that you can burn a lot of calories just by being more active, and not sitting around watching Netflix.

  • You can burn 100 calories by: playing with your dog for 30 minutes, singing karaoke for 45 minutes, or cooking dinner for an hour.
  • You can burn 200 calories by: dancing for 30 minutes, going for a light bike ride for 45 minutes, or washing and cleaning out your car for an hour.
  • You can burn 300 calories by: gardening for an hour, throwing a Frisbee around for 90 minutes, or going shopping for two hours.
  • You can burn 400 calories by: helping a friend move for 45 minutes, doing yard work for 90 minutes, or by spending two hours bowling. If you drink beer the whole time, you'll counteract that though.
