With trampoline parks currently springing up everywhere, there’s no better time to jump on the band wagon. Why not get your friends involved and organise a fun day out. Don’t forget that you can burn 500 calories while jumping around for an hour!


With so much space out there why not explore it! We’re always shouting about our love for the outdoors and there’s no better way to enjoy it with a Sunday hike. Head to your nearest national park and set off on an adventure! With a steady pace, you can burn approx. 250 calories in 45 minutes!

Ice Skating

Take full advantage of the winter months and visit your local ice arena! Get your skates on because this fun way of exercising can burn approx. 200 calories in 30 minutes.

Do a Little Dance

You don’t have to leave the house for this one. Stick on your favourite tunes and bust a move – the crazier the better! The perfect time to do this is between a commercial break when you’re watching TV. Not only will dancing liven up your evening, it can burn on average 100 calories every 15 minutes!


There’s no doubt about it… We LOVE yoga! It’s the perfect way to wind down from a busy day and restore your inner peace. With a modest 200 calories burnt an hour, yoga works on your core muscles to help tone and strengthen both the body and mind.
