By: Sara Borzatta
Sometimes, fun in the sun (or water) creates the best, unexpected, calorie-burning workout. When you choose exercises you enjoy, you can focus more on the fun and less on the work. Go ahead and sweat it out with these summer-workout ideas!

Beach Volleyball

This one’s a classic! But it’s a tough one. Between the jumping, diving, setting, and serving, your whole body will get a workout. Why not let your competitive nature shine and organize a group game?

Approximate calories burned per hour: 544.*
Must-have product for your beach volley workout: AMPED™ Hydrate.
Be sure to stay hydrated while you’re working up a sweat during each match.

Scuba Diving

Who knew, scuba diving could burn some serious calories?! Channel your inner adventurer, and burn calories while touring the deep dark blue.

Approximate calories burned per hour: 476.*
Must-have product for your scuba workout: Ionix® Supreme.
Take it all in, and destress in the beauty of the tranquil ocean — right after a cup of Ionix, a nutrient-rich tonic that protects against the negative effects of stress.†

Snorkeling
