Physical Fitness or Shopping?
Would you rather go to the gym for an hour of working out or to the mall to shop? Mall shoppers take heart! You even burn calories when you are shopping. Especially if you are a power shopper. 😉
Yes, this is a bit of humor, but there is elements of truth here.
Physical Fitness Facts
- A 140 pound person burns 151 calories shopping for 60 minutes.
- According to a new study, the average woman burns 15,000 calories every year by shopping. (Source: You Burn 15,000 Calories a Year Just By Shopping)
- 1 in 10 shoppers burn off 1,000 calories per trip
Of course, if you snack while on a shopping spree…yeah, that makes some of that calorie burn null and void.
With shopping season getting underway, it’s a motivating fact to know you’ll get the bonus of some calorie burn while your gift-hunting. 🙂
