Trick or treating counts as exercise

Trick or treating counts as exercise

25 Oct 2022 by Ted Escobedo   2 min read

If you need a motivation to take an evening walk, we have three words for you: Trick or Treat! There is simply no masking the fact that walking is great exercise but how effective is trick-or-treating for exercise?

Say you’re 65 years old, of average height and weight, and walking at a moderate pace. If you spend two hours trick-or-treating, you’ll have burned about 616 calories if you’re an average male and 528 if you’re an average female.

But ghosts and goblins beware! Walk in well-lit areas, keep on the sidewalk, and make sure you can see your little monsters by utilizing flashlights or reflective clothing.
