But, what if we told you that you don't really need to spend hours and hours at the gym to get a sculpted body? Yes ladies, you read that right.

These five intense activities can make you burn over five hundred calories in just 60 minutes:

The High-Intensity Interval Training
The high-intensity interval training (HIIT) involves alternating periods of high-intensity exercise with low-intensity recovery periods.

Start slowly and increase the pace of your running or high-intensity circuits gradually to avoid injuries.
