Besides its fun, running on the beach is regarded as an efficient calories burning workout. A study performed by The journal of Experimental Biology shows that an athlete running on soft beach expends close to one and a half times more energy than an individual running on the road. It means that you can burn your calories in a shorter time by running on the beach. This is an effective way for people who want to lose weight. A vacationer who want to stay fit, but don’t have enough time to do some exercises will get the most benefit from this activity.
