Moderate workouts that burn calories
You don`t have to a squeeze into the lycra and work yourself into a red-faced sweaty mess in order to enjoy a workout. If you are not into highly rigorous exercise, then more moderate workouts like Tai Chi, yoga or even exercising in water can all offer a low-intensity alternative, yet make a series dent in your calorie burn count.

Water workout

Taking to the water can provide a great workout and be ideal for people who are just starting out in fitness or working their way back after an injury. There are a variety of options, from a full aqua aerobic session to sessions consisting of walking on underwater treadmills – really it’s all about being active, but in the water.

The water supports your bodyweight (up to 85 per cent of it), minimising the impact on your joints, making it suitable for people of any age, size or fitness level. The number of calories burnt is dependent on the depth of the water - the deeper the water, the more calories you will burn as more energy is required to push your body mass through water. On average, a half hour session in the water will burn around 200 calories - and even more should you add additional weights to your body.
