A Gym-Free Cardio Workout

To get a good cardiovascular workout, you don't need a gym membership, a fitness class, or expensive equipment. Consider the following non-gym options to get your blood pumping. (Note that the number of calories burned is based on a weight of 150 pounds. If you weigh less, you'll burn fewer calories; if you weigh more, you'll burn more.)

  • Walking: Strap on your sneakers and burn between 200 and 300 calories an hour, depending on your speed.
  • Running: When you're ready, pick up the pace and burn between 250 and 400 calories per half hour spent pounding the pavement.
