Walk 10,000 Steps to Boost Your Fitness and Health

To maintain our weight and general health, several fitness professionals advise that we walk 10,000 steps every day. Depending on how far you walk in a single stride, 10,000 steps is equivalent to about 5 kilometres. To track your daily step count, buy and wear a pedometer. Observe the instructions that typically accompany the pedometer. You will acquire a good average step count if you do this for a week or two. Your objective is to walk at least 10,000 steps each day. Although 10,000 is not particularly magical, it will get you started.

A person will typically burn about 100 calories when walking a mile, depending on their age, size, and degree of fitness. The heavier you are, the more calories you burn.

Find inventive ways to walk more often. 

Take walks at work during lunch. Take a stroll with your partner or kids. Walk the dog. Drive less or park at the far end of the parking lot to avoid having to walk to the store. Instead of using the elevator, use the stairs. Follow your best course of action. To prevent injury when walking for exercise, use comfortable shoes and socks (like aerobic walking).
