Beach volleyball

If you're lucky enough to live near a beach, this sport is a great way to get your heart rate up, make friends, and tone your legs, shoulders, and core. And because it's harder to move in the sand, you get extra calorie burn.

If you’re inland, many parks and even some gyms have sand courts that offer similar benefits.
