I only count stairs when I go up and down the same two flights of stairs for 10 minutes at a time at a steady pace.
Norah -- If it's in a can, a bag, or a box, it's probably not good for you so put it down.
I count all my steps with my Mio watch that I wear everyday. I track them as well.

I do stairs but dont count them in my fittnes tracker, i also dont track my steps, should I be tracking these?
I do not do stairs!

Most of my stairs are not counted. My desk is on the 4th floor, but I work in labs on the 1st and 6th floors. I don't count this stair work as my cardio minutes, but I do count my steps for the day so I do account for the exercise somewhere.
There are days where I do stairs for my cardio workout. On campus at the local university, there are a couple of flights of stairs that are at least 4 or five stories in length. Some days I do my workout on those stairs. In these instances, there are a few choices: step-ups (but i don't choose this because the movement is different), stair machine, or hiking (cross country or hills with less than 10 pounds). My choice depends on the intensity of my workout. It's the best estimate I can make.
I wish SP had stairs specifically in the tracker.

I have 2 sets of stairs here at home that I climb on a daily basis.
They are part of my day. But on cardio days, I track under Cardio.....Step-ups.

I don't track it as extra because stairs are a part of my everyday, typical routine. But I imagine you could track it under Step-ups or Stair Step Machine. It's not exactly the same thing, but similar.

Hi everyone! Do you count taking the stairs as cardio for your day and if so how do you track it in the tracker?
