Make Working Out Fun

In general, people prefer to be in shape, but hate working out. Through experience, I have found that working out is more enjoyable when I don't realize I am working out.

With that being said, I have compiled a list of fun ways to work out! Calorie statistics are found from: http://www.eddieoneverything.com/sports/how-many-calories-does-activity-x-burn.php

1. Volleyball

Bump, set, spike!
