Running can get you in the best shape imaginable, and it's the best exercise for the heart. If you already jog 15 minutes a day, up it to 30-45.

15 minutes is a warm up and serves the body no true benefit. 20 minutes to benefit the heart and 30 minutes to burn fat. Also, you have to do it at least 4 days a week. If you are over 25 years old, you also need to condition the body, especially the core, to become an efficient runner.
