Hit the (indoor) ice: Skating tones the legs, core, and butt, along with smaller, stabilizing muscles that assist with balance and coordination. At a moderate pace, ice skating also burns about 500 calories per hour.

Jump around: Hop over to the nearest indoor trampoline park for a good workout. This bouncy childhood favorite is the latest fitness craze. it’s really fun and just six minutes of cardio moves on a trampoline is the equivalent to running,
