During the Spring Festival holiday, burning calories has become a new trend from an internet catchphrase, chinanews.com has reported.

In many parts of China, sports have risen in popularity, as people enjoy working out by putting their bodies in motion, reducing the physical burden of eating and drinking while staying healthier at the same time.

Fangfang, 24, from Taizhou, Zhejiang province, ran her first 5 kilometers of the Year of the Pig on Monday, as jogging to work makes her feel full of energy.

Dozens of winter swimmers from Yuhuan, Zhejiang, gathered at the beach behind Kanmen and rushed into to the sea against the cold wind to enjoy swimming. "We coastal people start the new year with our unique sport," winter swimming enthusiast Chen Zhongfang said.

In preparation for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, games on snow and ice are drawing more interest. In snow and ice parks in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia autonomous region, a number of experiential projects have been set up, such as a snow football field, ice bumper cars, curling, ice gyro and a snow circle. Thousands of citizens take part in such activities every day.
