Get Physical: Toss the Football Around

The weather is slowly turning into full blown spring and it's finally Saturday. It would be a real shame if you sat on your couch and watched any more TV today.


So, grab a partner and go outside! Don't know what to do once you get there? How about tossing a football around? I know it sounds a bit frat boy-esque, but playing catch is a great way to get outside, spend time with a friend or loved one, all while burning calories. A 130-pound woman will burn about 148 calories an hour leisurely tossing the football around. Want to get a bit more active? A 130-pound woman can burn up to 515 calories in a one hour game of touch football.

If your husband is anything like mine, he'll be über-excited at the opportunity to combine his three favorite loves: the outdoors, football and his wife. Heck, maybe you'll even get him to burn calories too. Nothing is better than pretending you don't know how to throw the ball exactly to him, and watching him run all over the place for it. Single? Grab a few of your girls for a day in the park. If you're looking for a man, you may just find one there, after all, we have seen many pictures of George Clooney throwing the ball around in the park recently. Plus, nothing is hotter than a bunch of girls tossing around the old pigskin.

Want to make sure you're really motivated to run and catch the ball? Pick up this Chanel football for your day in the park. Hike!
