Jogging can be one of the simplest and cheapest ways to get fit and stay fit, and it’s great for burning calories too. However old you are and no matter what shape you’re in, jogging can be done pretty much anytime, anywhere with barely any equipment and at any pace, just comfortable clothes and suitable pair of trainers!

Regular jogging offers many  health benefits including:

  • help to build strong bones as jogging is a weight bearing exercise
  • strengthen muscles in the body
  • improve cardiovascular fitness
  • one of the best ways to burn a large number of calories in a relatively short time
  • regular jogging can help with weight loss and maintain a healthy weight
  • jogging can help you to sleep better
  • Jogging improves mental health and reduces depression
  • Helps to reduce the risk of diabetes
  • It will help to lower your blood pressure

The average person will burn between 80 to 140 calories per mile. 30 minutes of running will burn between 280 and 520 calories, depending on your weight and speed. The calories burned running will depend on your weight, time spent running and to a lesser degree, your speed. Jogging burns more calories per minute than almost every other sport.
