There are many exercise options that can torch major calories and give you more of a metabolism. The following six workouts can help you smash serious fat, without ever having to try hard. Plus, these are exercises you might actually enjoy!

6 Exercises That Will Get You In Better Shape!!

  • Jumping rope:

Kicking things off is my personal fave: jumping rope! Jumping rope challenges your endurance, strength, balance, and 
coordination all at the same time.

Jumping rope

At a moderate pace, you can easily burn about 15 calories a minute, according to the American Heart Association. 

Add that up, and by jumping rope for 35 minutes a day, you could easily shed 1 pound a week without even changing your diet!

  • Walking:

Did you know that if you include 30 minutes of brisk walking to your daily routine you could burn about 150 calories a day?

When you want to shed serious weight, walking doesn't even cross your mind.

Well, it should...

Walking is the easiest weight loss exercise and low intensity of course.


If you're a beginner, start by walking 3 days per week for at least 20 minutes and then gradually increase the frequency and duration of your walks until you are walking 30-60 minutes per day and six times a week.

Now put on your walking shoes, turn on the music and walk off your weight.

  • Swimming:

Swimming workouts burn fat, trim inches and help you get stronger, fitter and healthier than ever.

Swimming vigorously can burn up to 500-700 calories an hour, whether you do a breaststroke or freestyle.

It's a highly effective form of exercise for weight loss and toning.
Swimming engages all of the major muscle groups, from your abdominals and back muscles to your arms, legs, hips, and glutes.

It can be your sole form of fitness but can effectively complement other exercises like walking and running as well.

So go ahead, make a splash, lose weight and feel great

  • Rock climbing:

Rock climbing is an amazing total-body workout. 

I also think it's one of the coolest ways to shed calories (nearly 500 in just a half hour) because you get to unleash your inner adrenaline junkie while singing the Mission Impossible theme in your head.

  • Rowing:

Rowing is also a great trainer for your arms, abs, legs, and back, and you can easily ratchet up your intensity for more calorie burn. 

Most gyms have one or two rowing machines, and they're almost never being used. 

This means that, unlike the treadmill, you won’t have to wait in line just to get started.

  • Kettlebells:

Simple kettlebell swings can yield a serious 
calorie burn, especially if you’re not already in shape. 

The movement and momentum of kettlebell swings can really tax your body's largest muscles (your back and leg muscles), all while sending your heart rate into overdrive. 

End result: An adult man or woman can torch approximately 20 calories per minute doing simple kettlebell swings.
