Get Moving!

According to an article in the March 2010 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, get one sweat every day and your health should get better.

1. If you're sick of the gym, try a fun alternative that burns more calories than walking (246 calories per hour for a moderate pace). Ballet or swimming laps burns 422 calories; biking or playing Ping-Pong, 281.

2. Take a break. You may burn more fat when you divide a 60-minute workout into two 30-minute sessions with a 20-minute rest in between.  The boost may even continue post-exercise.

3. Get your hands dirty. Gardening gives you aas much of a workout as walking or golf, a recent study reported.  Plus: The weight-bearing motions involved in digging and pulling weeds can strengthen bones and muscle.

4. Do it to music.  Tunes that are in sync with your workout rate help keep you going up to 15 percent longer, British researchers found.
