How much calorie is burned after an hour of brisk walking
Making exercise a part of your daily way of life is a great way to improve your health. Post your questions or comments here.
The only exercise I do is briskwalking (mainly because I enjoy chatting with friends while we walk). I easily get bored when I'm in a gym. Does it burn any calories?

Absolutely! Walking every day can help you look better, feel better and add more life to your years. To improve your health and fitness,  you should get at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity most days of the week, preferably daily. Moderate physical activity, does include brisk walking-this is a pace of about 2 miles in 30 minutes. You can do it all at once, or divide it into two or three parts during the day. Even small, 10-minute bursts of activity count, as long as they add up to at least 30 minutes per day. As far as calorie burn goes, that varies from person to person. For example, a  150 lb. person who walks briskly for 30 minutes will burn approximately 170 calories, whereas a 120 lb. person will burn around 140 calories.

Instead of joining a gym you could look into boxing or kickboxing arobics, they have hour classes all day to fit your schedule.  Instead of being bored at a gym you will have a trainer to motivate you through your work out, and instead of running a treadmill  (which most have)  your hitting a bag so your also toning your body as well as burning much mucho calories.  A good company to research would be title boxing.  In a book I read about slimming down and obtaining flatter abs says the three best cardiovascular workouts with low joint impact would be 1. rowing  2. swimming 3. boxing.

True, even I enjoy walking and jogging rather doing some lifeless exercises. What speed do you walk? I've a software in my mobile which tells me that I walk 7kms everyday :)
