I was curious on this the other day, so would it be wise to count steps with a pedometer on an elliptical. I have one here at home and I intend to use it instead of dealing with bad weather or when kiddo doesn't want to walk in the evenings. Pretty much when I cannot go walking.

Can it count???

Yes, me too, I wear it starting after my shower until bed time. Wearing it and being able to check on the steps keeps me motivated to keep going, plus I use the clock function a lot at work.

I wear my pedometer for everything. I count my total steps for the day. I do count the aerobic activity differently when I do this. Ellipticals do not always count steps because there isn't the impact that walking has.

Curious if strides on the Elliptical count toward steps? Do you keep your pedometer on while you use the Elliptical or during other exercise activities such as an aerobics class?
