Hockey - Learn To Play As An Adult And Burn Tons Of Calories!!!!
Members Were Sparked
Have fun and burn amazing amounts of calories by learning a new sport - Hockey! I usually burn between 700-1100 calories during a 60-75 minute session. I don't even realize it because I'm having so much fun! Check your local ice rink for an adult learn-to-play session.
Some rinks/organizations will loan you the equipment you need or check with a used sports equipment store to save money on the equipment.

If you have (active) children look at them when they play. They play hard and enjoy it. Try to forget to be an adult and play the way they do. They don't worry about burning calories or time. They just feel the wind in their face and the sun on their backs as they run, jump, bike or whatever. Laugh and play like a child. (You'll burn calories)
I liked playing field hockey and lacrosse in high school, and since I still have my equipment, it's easy to add 5-15 minutes of playing the sport to the end of my work out time for something fun and a little added calorie burning! 345
Just 5 minutes of playing field hockey (hitting the ball around my yard and chasing after it), burns off 94 calories! I'm hoping that as I continue to lose weight I will soon be in well enough shape to join a local team.
