Us girls are all about keeping fit and staying active, but sometimes the treadmills and stationary bikes can get boring. Staying fit doesn't have to be a chore! We've got five weekend activities that you can do to have fun while shedding those extra calories:

1. Be a mermaid for a day.

Is there a girl who never dreamt of becoming a mermaid at some point in her life? The Philippine Mermaid Swimming Academy lets your under-the-sea dreams come true with 90-minute sessions that will teach you how to do basic mermaid strokes in shallow water. Swimming is a really good exercise alternative, so you can take care of those love handles while rocking your mermaid tail.

2. Take your cue from The Hunger Games.

We're sure you've always wanted to look as cool as Katniss Everdeen with a bow and arrow, too. So why not book a session at Gandiva Archery? Just 30 minutes of this fun activity will burn you 140 calories and help you tone flabby arms.

3. Channel your inner Elsa.

Okay, so it's impossible to shoot icicles out of your palms, but you can be your own version of the ice queen by ice skating! The activity involves balance and a lot of measured movements, so your muscles will definitely do their own fair share of work. Check out the SM Skating Rink for classes you can sign up for. 

4. Answer the pole's calling.

Time to step out of your comfort zone and try pole dancing. This activity helps tone muscles and gives you better control and balance of your body. Of course, you feeling sexy and powerful is just the cherry on top. Polecats Manila offers classes and private lessons if you want to get started!

5. Be a kid again.

Sometimes, we all just need a break from adulting. Rolling, jumping, and swimming at Ball Pit Manila will definitely give you carefree, childhood feels while providing you a full-body workout as well. You even get a free cup of coffee when you need to start winding down.

To make things even better, Granny Goose is teaming up with Ball Pit Manila for the third leg of its #MoreThanTheUsual Experience! Join Granny Goose as they set up one of the biggest adult ball pits in select malls around Manila. Experience extraordinary activities, win exciting prizes, and even mingle with special guests while enjoying your favorite Granny Goose Tortillos, Kornets, and POP'N CHIPS on September 3 at the Sta. Lucia Mall, Cainta and on September 10 at the Lucky Chinatown Mall, Manila.

You can also drop by Ball Pit's HQ for the whole month of September and get special prizes and snacks from Granny Goose!
