Fitness & Housework

Housework – Fitness & Calories Burned

Instead of viewing housework as a chore, see it as your workout time.

Vacuuming, polishing and cleaning windows are all great fat-burners. You can burn up to 250 calories an hour – about the same as you would walking for an hour.

Five hours housework a week burns a total of 65,000 calories a year – the same number of calories you need to burn in order to lose over 18 pounds a year.

So don’t look at housework as a waste of energy – see it as a way to improve fitness and burn calories.
