Musical Chairs

Benefits: Great for agility, reflexes, and balance, says Scripps.

What You Need: Chairs, a semi-open space, someone to manage the music.

How You Play: Move some furniture to clear some space. Then arrange five or six chairs (depending on the number of players) in a circle with the seats facing outward. To be fair, all the chairs should be of the same type. You must have one less chair than the number of participants. The music starts, and the group walks around the chairs. When the music stops, everyone vies to sit in a chair. The player left standing is out. Eliminate one chair and start over. Keep taking away chairs until there is only one chair and two players left. The one who gets the last chair wins.

How Many Calories You Burn*: About 5.9 calories per minute and 175.8 calories per half-hour.

*Calorie burns are based on a 155-pound person.
