      Hiya lucyja! I am a very keen swimmer and if you swim fast then you burn loads of calories. Running also burns lots of calories because lots of muscle groups are working at once. 🙂

      Hey Lucy,

      I really don’t know, but running is good, and so are rowing on rowing machine (or in a boat) and swimming, and these last too have the advantage that they are very low impact on your joints.
