1. Running

And the winner is: Running – the most simple and cheapest way to lose weight. The survey revealed that the test subject burns the most calories whilst running, 547 per hour. That is up to twenty per cent more then with any other endurance sports.  The lesson is clear: Who is able to run, should run.

4. Inline-skating

There is no second endurance sport that trains your balance and condition as much as Inline-skating. Once, you have your feet under control, you will be able to have lots of fun and also be burning up to 408 calories per hour.

5. Walking

Even if it only burns 395 calories per hour, walking is still a very good place to start for people who are not used to an extensive exercise regime.

6. Nordic-Walking

When performed correctly, Nordic Walking will allow you to burn up 440 calories per hour and is the best alternative to running.
