(HealthDay News) -- Hitting the gym or going for a run are great ways to exercise, but there are lots of other ways to burn calories.

The Weight-loss Information Network suggests how to get more physical activity each day:

  • Aerobic exercises, such as biking, jogging, swimming or walking.
  • Strength training exercises, by using weight machines or by doing crunches, push-ups or using free weights.
  • Play a sport, such as racquetball, golf, tennis or basketball.
  • Household chores, such as mowing the lawn, washing the car or walking up and down stairs.
