Include Strength Training In Your Workout

One of the major advantages to lifting weights is that the more muscle you have the higher your metabolism will be, and a high metabolism means your body will burn calories quicker. So instead of only doing cardio to burn calories, consider toning up your body by building some lean muscle using free weights.
Free weights include dumbbells, barbells, medicine balls, sandbells, and kettlebells.

Resistance bands 
.Resistance training is any exercise that causes the muscles to contract against an external resistance with the expectation of increases in strength, tone, mass, and/or endurance. The external resistance can be dumbbells, resistance bands,  rubber exercise tubing, your own body weight, bricks, bottles of water, or any other object that causes the muscles to contract.
