Hate cleaning? Here’s something that could motivate you to get those chores done!

Researchers found that doing two hours of intense cleaning can burn about 600 calories. You only burn about half that running a 5K! Researchers used fitness trackers on participants to determine the intensity and calorie count of each task. Here’s how you can clean your way fit:

  • Vacuuming for 20 minutes = 80 calories
  • Cleaning the bathroom for 20 minutes = 100 calories
  • Mopping for 20 minutes = 107 calories
