How To Burn Calories At The Beach This Summer

Summertime is FINALLY here. You know what that means: summer Fridays, long weekends and lots of sun.

Instead of working out in a stuffy gym, we now have the freedom to exercise outside. The entire world can be our gym. There is no more cold weather holding us back.

Imagine, it's a Saturday morning, and you just laced up your sneakers to go for a nice early-morning run in the summer sun. But as soon as you're about to leave the house, your fun friend (let's say her name is Rebecca) calls you to go to the beach.

Rebecca is always down for a good time, so you don't want to say no, but you just finally convinced yourself to get out of bed and work out. Alas! What does one do in this situation? Work out or head to the beach with fun-friend Rebecca?

We have a solution to this agonizing problem -- you can work out while you're at the beach!

Check out this video to see what beach activities you can do to burn all the same calories you were going to lose while exercising the regular way. You might be surprised to find out sleeping is on the list of activities.

Happy summer!
