5 cardio exercises that burn more calories than running

If the thought of spending time on the treadmill fills you with dread, we’ve got good news: Running is not the only form of cardio that’ll torch fat and burn calories. Often favored for being easily accessible and relatively cheap, the average person will burn between 85 and 140 calories per mile, or between 280 and 520 calories per 30 minutes of running. 

That said, if you can’t run due to an injury, or just don’t like it, there are plenty of other forms of cardio that are as, if not more, effective, according to Dan Harris, a personal trainer at Ebikes Direct. So grab your fitness tracker, dig out your skipping rope and get ready to sweat.
