Burn calories while cleaning??

Want to burn calories, grab those rubber gloves & prepare to see vacuuming in a whole new light…

Burn calories upto 2,000+ while spring cleaning the house? We’re in! British Military Fitness has shared the best calorie-busting cleaning tips to get in shape from body to bathroom!

Sweeping
Arm yourself with a sweeping brush and really get going, you can burn up to 136 calories in 30 minutes!

Dusting
Giving the whole house a good dusting should work off 170 calories in an hour.

Washing floors
Get some elbow grease into washing the floor, and you could burn up to 187 calories in 30 minutes.

Cleaning windows
Giving your windows a brand new sheen and digging that grime out from around the edges is well worth the reward – 334 calories gone in an hour!

Vacuuming
Vacuuming can be one of the more active chores and if you do the whole house, you’ll cover a lot of ground! Put your back into it and you’ll burn around 238 calories.

Washing the car
Skip the drive-through car wash and burn around 153 calories by doing it yourself!

Deep cleaning the bathroom
Blasting the bathroom of soap scum and mould can burn up to 258 calories. A good reason to get the rubber gloves on if we ever heard one!

Moving furniture
Burn 200 calories in just 30 minutes by switching around the big things.

Mowing the lawn
Get your boots on and mow the lawn to burn off 190 calories in just half an hour. We don’t think a sit-down mower counts, however!

Redecorating
One of the best for burning off calories, repainting the walls can work off 334 calories in an hour. Bring us the colour swatches!

NB. All calorie counts are based on a person weighing 150lb
