Extend your workout to burn more calories

Any workout in which you engage will help you to burn more calories. The more intense the workout, the more calories you will burn. In addition, you may also burn more calories if you work out for a longer period as opposed to a shorter one (doing the very same exercises).

Give your exercise routine just a few more minutes


Consider working out for just a few more minutes to increase the number of calories that you will burn. It doesn’t matter whether you are running on the treadmill, playing a sport, jumping on a trampoline or even going for a walk – just extend the duration of the activity by a few minutes! You will love the slimmer you after a few weeks!

Experiencing discomfort?

Always stop if you experience any discomfort or pain and remember that the more fit you are, the more comfortable you will feel when exercising.

Consult your doctor

Always remember to consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime or making intense changes to your current one – especially if you suffer from any medical conditions and for some reason are required not to place your body or yourself under any form of stress or strain.

Get a physical trainer

If you do not know where to start or how to put a suitable workout routine together for yourself, seek the assistance of a physical trainer. There may be many available at your local gym.
