Give the outdoor gym a chance this spring.  And there are no initiation fees to pay!

  • You can burn as many calories in 45 minutes of gardening as in 30 minutes of aerobics.
  • Women 50+ who garden at least once a week had higher bone density scans than those who walked, jogged or swam.
  • One hour of weeding burns 300 calories.
  • A manual push mower burns 500 calories an hour (the same rate as playing tennis).
