Kicking a ball around
If throwing sports aren’t your style, consider playing pass with a kickball or soccer ball, which can burn up to 900 kilojoules in an hour. Want more? “Make it a game,” says Somma. “A casual game of soccer or switching to kickball will up the kilojoule burn more than double to 2100 kilojoules per hour.”

Remember, while it may be fun to jump around with others, the injury risk is increased when you have multiple jumpers on a trampoline, so it’s important to keep your wits about you.
