    If walk my dogs for 30 mins then ill burn more than 100 calories because my dogs are crazy and will pull like hell when they see someone or an another dog or an insect or a leaf blowing in the wind and they’re boxers so they’re strong and more crazy than other dogs. There’s also an app called Fiton that is completely free unless you want Fiton pro and there’s all kinds of workouts.
