What is NEAT?
Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis
What has this got to do with banging strangers?
It is the energy (calories) expended for everything we do that is not sleeping, eating or sports-like exercise.
Everyone gets so caught up on….
- That one HIIT session
- A quick run after work
- Shirtless crossfit
You are so focused on that one exercise or activity per day, that you totally forget about everything else.

3 Smart ways of increasing your NEAT
The Sue Scenario
1. Walk to the toilet
When you go camping over this festive season, instead of squatting and peeing next to the tent, increase your steps by walking to the ablution facilities.
2. Do the walk of shame
Instead of booking an Uber after sleeping with your stranger, do the walk of shame. This is a double deal. The calorie burn from the adult activity and the walk home.
3. Trimming the bush
Another good way of upping that energy expenditure through non-exercise activity could be gardening.
Here are some more serious ways of upping your energy expenditure without hitting the gym…
The importance of 10000 steps per day….
If you are a beginner or even an advanced fitness individual, here are some basic facts…
- 10000 steps per day will burn on average 400 calories
- You add some gardening to that…
- You stand and work for an hour a day
If you add this all up and you have a minimum of 500 calories per day that you have burnt without even entering a gym!
