Move and Get Fit


Newport movers certainly expend their share of energy with every move. Lifting, lugging, and loading – all that intensive activity makes some serious physical demands. Yeah, you definitely can call it a workout. But unless you’ve loafed your way to moving day, the crew of your selected Newport Beach moving company won’t be the only people getting a workout. As you put those biceps and triceps to work packing and wrapping, you’ll be toning up and burning calories, too.

Absolutely keep that in mind the next time you worry about missing gym sessions because you’re preoccupied with moving tasks. The truth is, those tasks may be doing you an equal amount of good, just as they do for the crews of Newport Beach moving companies. OK, maybe packing dinnerware and soccer trophies isn’t as much fun as kick-boxing. But you can’t have everything.

How good of a workout do you get performing moving tasks? The answer, of course, varies according to the number of hours invested in the process. By way of example, here’s what a 140-pound person can expect in terms of calorie-burning.

Packing and unpacking boxes – 222 calories
Carrying furniture – 81 calories
Carrying box and/or furniture up stairs – 572 calories

Naturally, duration plays a major role in determining workout intensity and therefore calories burned. Typically, a professional packer can load eight-ten boxes per hour. A non-pro, on the other hand, can probably load about five-seven containers in the same amount of time.

The other important variable to consider is home size. Obviously, an 1,800 square foot house would require more packing time than would a 3,000 square foot residence.
