I think its not a must you do rigorous exercise or cardio exercises just to lose weight, its possible to lose weight without running. Many people might not have a conducive environment to run especially people in living in area where the roads are bad.
Or based n the nature of the person's job, you may not be able to do some running for your exercise and weight loss program but there few exercise you can do to lose weight without running around. Some of these exercise includes;
1. Skipping: One of the most effective exercise that works well for weight loss is skipping and i believe the skipping rope is an equipment which can be affordable, done in the comfort of your home. If you whip the rope for few seconds or minutes straight, it burns so much calories and the effect will be known because you lose weight slowly and gradually.
2. Walking: Walking is also a form of exercise can be done in place of running. Walking also work on the body parts such as biceps, stomach, legs, joint and the body in general. Walking is the cheapest form of exercise because you do not need any special device but to walk round your house, street, environments. Walking may be slow but when you walk few distance without some time probably 20 - 30mins of walk does wonders and reduces weight too.
3. Rowing: Rowing is ranked as an effective method to lose weight without running. Rowing help burn calories around the legs, back, arms and other region in the body. You can visit the gym centers around you and ask for the rowing machine.
4. Rock Climbing: Rock climbing is one of the good and effective way to lose weight without running and ways to lose some calories/shed few weight. Rock climbing is so effective just like running and has been describe as a good way to exercise for weight loss. But its limited to some people because rocks might not be available in some areas or can't be seen in other areas.
5. Swimming: Swimming is a form of exercise can be done instead of running. Swimming also work on the body parts such as biceps, stomach, legs, joint and the body in general. Swimming is a cheap form of exercise but not for everyone because you have to learn how to swim before you can do this. Swimming is fun but you will be burning calories with fun, that what makes swimming a good exercise for the body.
