The average inactive person takes roughly 3,000 steps per day. These steps are taken usually around the house doing regular daily activities.
As an active person or someone who would like to become more active they should aim around 10,000 which is roughly 5 miles. If you exercise or walk regularly for 30-60 min these steps are achieved or even surpassed.
Get a pedometer or download an app on your phone to track all your steps. I’ve just downloaded walkroid for my android and I will keep you posted on how out works.
Depending on your weight, 10,000 steps burns between 250 and 600 calories. Most weight loss programs recommend burning 200-300 calories per day in moderate to vigorous exercise.
how can you achieve this?
-take a walk around the neighborhood
-park or get off the bus a few stops early
-walk to work
-go on a trail work a friend and/or pet
