The best exercise for weight loss is the one you keep doing.

Running burns more calories per minute than walking, but running is painful & we find excuses to avoid pain...

Running burns more calories per minute, but most people can walk for way more minutes than they can run...

I like to mix them all up. At a gym with the right equipment that's really easy and doesn't get boring when I switch cardio every five or ten minutes.

But don't some gym workouts build muscles on the fat layer ?

Not really sure what you mean... Muscles can be built up UNDER the fat layer, if you're exercising (weight/resistance training ) & eating for gains... but any of those cardio options you mentioned aren't going to build much muscle but they will burn fat.

My main goal is to burn fat but if we want to build muscle do we need a small amount of body fat?

Well if you want to LIVE you need a small amount of body fat... But I'm sure you're not going to get that low. So, don't worry about that. Go ahead & do fat burning exercises. Be sure to monitor your caloric intake, though, since losing fat is way more likely from dietary changes than just exercise alone.

And as for building muscle, don't worry, you'll be able to do that even if you lose some fat first.
