Get Moving

Walking is, overall, one of the best activities you can do to achieve fitness. To get the most benefit, you need to take 10,000 steps a day (roughly 5 miles), which can be measured by a pedometer, your Smartphone or an activity tracker. A person who walks 10,000 steps a day will burn between 2000 and 3500 extra calories per week. Keep in mind that about half of your 10,000 steps can come from activities of everyday living.

Staying Motivated to Keep Walking 
Challenge yourself. Set new goals. Increase the distance, time and/or frequency of your walks.
