Cycling is also great for exploring cities and nature.


Cycling not only lets you burn calories, it also helps you lessen your carbon footprint. Between two types of cycling—indoor and outdoor cycling—the latter is the one to try if you’re in for an adventure with your sweetie. According to studies, the faster your speed, the more you’re likely to burn. Ready to kick it up a notch? Try mountain biking, which is known to burn more calories because of the uneven terrains and uphills. Not only will you lose weight, but you will also get to marvel at the beauty of nature together!


2. Bowling

Bowling also provides a healthy competition between you and your loved one.


Got a slow metabolism? A Friday night bowling date might speed it up. This activity can burn 170 to 300 calories depending on your weight and effort. For example, an adult weighing 200 pounds can burn up to 275 calories per hour. Bowling not only burns stored fat around the stomach area, but it also helps in maintaining normal cholesterol level and blood pressure. Plus, it also boosts your mood since it releases endorphins!



3. Mountain Climbing

The Philippines is abundant in majestic mountain ranges, so why not explore these wonders of nature with your partner? Besides its weight loss benefits, mountain climbing improves stamina and endurance—all while you marvel at breathtaking views! The activity also enhances flexibility, agility, and muscle strength. Not only this, Being close to nature also has mental health benefits and raises mental concentration and problem solving.


4. Swimming

Who knew those beach trips are not only great for vacations but also for your health?


When it comes to losing weight, many people believe that you should see sweat to know if your workout was effective. This could be why most people do not see swimming as an effective fat-burning activity. But believe it or not, swimming actually burns many calories since it is a full-body workout that engages every muscle group. It is also suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels and is safe for persons with disabilities and pregnant women, too!


5. Going on a Karaoke Date

“Karaoke diet” has been a trend in Japan since the late 90s.


Even if you and your beau are not gifted singers, try having a karaoke session as a fun way to burn calories. Just like the other activities on this list, the amount of calories you burn depends on your weight and effort when singing. For instance, a person who weighs 150 pounds can burn 100 calories per hour while singing seated. Singing is also known to provide an effective abdominal breathing exercise.



6. Dancing

“Dancing is a low-impact aerobic activity that helps in boosting metabolism.


Back in 2017, a Korean dance craze called 'Weight-Loss Dance' went viral for being an effective fat-burning activity. In fact, it was found that the routine can help shave off as much as 22 pounds in just two weeks. Note though that the recommended rate of weight loss is 1 to 2 lbs per week, so don't go too dance-crazy! Instead, look for routines with easy-to-follow choreography and go dancing for 30 minutes a day, as moving for half an hour can already help with weight loss. For higher effectiveness, choose songs with fast tempos and choreography that require full-body movements.


7. Watching Comedy Shows

Who knew being a couch potato can have benefits?


While laughter is not always the best medicine, research states that laughing for 15 minutes a day can help burn 10 to 40 calories. Your typical Netflix dates are found to not only help in burning fat, but also in diffusing negative emotions such as anger, stress, and anxiety. So if you and your bae are feeling lazy to work out, just watch a comedy show or a funny movie to feel better physically and emotionally. It doesn't get more fun than this!


These fat-burning activities can be done not only to maintain your health but also to bond with your partner. Have fun!
