Convenient, Cost-Effective Exercises
The gym may not always be an option for getting exercise. If you’re looking for effective and accessible cardio exercises you can do at home to burn calories and stay in shape, then take note of these simple exercises that can be done anytime, anywhere.
Burn up to 220 calories in 20 minutes. Jump ropes are inexpensive, travel well, require no special skills and can be used anywhere you have the space.
Burn up to 100 calories in 10 minutes. No special equipment or skills are needed.
Jogging in Place
Jogging in a stationary position gets the heart rate up and warms up the body for more intense exercises.
