7 Recess-Inspired Workouts That Burn 400 Calories or Less

Ask most kids what their favorite subject is, and they’ll probably say recess. Just because you’re a grown up, doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Recess-inspired workouts aren’t only a great way to reinvigorate a fitness routine, they’re also serious calorie burners. Just 30 minutes of these recess-style workouts burn 280–460 calories.* So treat yourself to some back-to-school workout gear, channel your inner kid and hit the playground, field or even the gym. Because who says a workout has to feel like work?


*Calorie burn based on a 150-pound, 30-year-old woman.
