The 10K STEP CHALLENGE
From July 20th to August 16th, I’m challenging you to get moving with the best fitness equipment there is – 2 feet and a heartbeat (and a pedometer to keep you on track!)
10,000 Step Goal!
CAN’T FIT 30 MINUTES OF STRENUOUS EXERCISE INTO YOUR DAY?
Think again! The average American walks between 2,000 – 3,000 steps per day but is considered to have a sedentary lifestyle.
So the more exercise the better! Walking 5 miles a day get syou 30 minutes of strenuous exercise. And it just so happens that 5 miles is about 10,000 steps. The goal of this challenge is to gain as many steps as you can by the end of each week. Start your goal lower for the first week, and incrementally increase your goal for the following week(s). At the end of the 4 weeks, you will hopefully get to 10,000 steps, or 30 minutes of strenuous exercise per day.
DON’T GET DISCOURAGED!
A general rule of thumb is that if you increase your activity at all – such as going rrom 4,000 steps a day to 5,000 – your overal health will be positively impacted. If you already take 50,000 steps per week, try shooting for 55,000!
