Burning 1,000 calories in one hour requires high-octane exercise that forces the body to operate at maximum capacity.

There are plenty of high-intensity workouts that people can enjoy during their weight loss journeys, like a HIIT class or Zumba.

A good workout to try is sprint interval training, whether it’s on a treadmill or around the neighbourhood.

According to FitDay, running for 60 minutes at eight miles per hour could burn 1,074 calories in a 200lbs person.
