Aerobic exercise

One of the most effective ways to burn calories is through aerobic exercise. Unlike strength training, aerobic exercise needn't depend on accessories or machines, but there are many options out there which can make your exercise routine more effective or comfortable. Running on a treadmill rather than outdoors, for example, helps to protect your joints and keep your workout more low impact.

You can also monitor your heart rate and how many calories you're burning on dedicated gym-based machines such as the treadmill. The same applies to gym equipment machines such as fixed-wheel exercise bikes or cross-trainers. A cross-trainer has the additional advantage of enabling you to work your upper body at the same time.

Using accessories such as ankle and wrist weights while you're exercising can also help you by increasing resistance, so that you work harder.

Strength Training

Strength training, using either free weights or machines, is another invaluable element of any fitness programme. You might want to invest in a set of dumbbells, or an exercise ball for abdominal work for example.

Exercise basics

And let's not forget the really low-tech end of the scale. A skipping rope or an exercise mat is a relatively small investment that could reap huge benefits for your personal exercise regime.
