Back in the late 1990s, it seemed like everyone had a pair of inline skates. Today, the trend has topped off, but there is definitely a reason more than 13 million people around the country still break out the blades for a fun, fast workout. Not only do you get to feel the breeze whooshing through your hair, you can burn ample calories and tone your muscles with inline skates as effectively as other intense cardio exercises.

Tae Kwon Do

Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our body and mind. Today, it has become a global sport that has gained an international reputation and stands among the official games in the Olympics.

Find out how many calories you are burning with your workouts!

Because 3,500 calories equals about 1 pound (0.45 kilogram) of fat, you need to burn 3,500 calories more than you take in to lose 1 pound.

If you reduce your caloric intake by 500 per day, and if your daily workout burns 500 calories, you will theoretically lose two pounds per week – a safe amount of weight to lose in a week.
