SLIMJIM2009 Thanks for the Steps to miles conversion chart; I am thinking about using it today since I was off at 1:00 p.m. today; I want to do at least 30 minutes today I already did 60 minutes of walking today doing cart duty at work so that is going to go in my fitness tracker and I really want to get in another 30 minutes if I can THANKS!!
Team Announcement: PLAYBLUES22 10/3/10 2:21 PM Step Conversions for your use
If you have a pedometer it is easy to keep track of your steps. If you don't own one, here is a conversion chart to let you know how hard you really workout in a day. Sometimes we don't know how many steps we walk in a day and therefore don't know just how much weight we can loose doing the things we love. So here is a step conversions chart for you.
The activities below are estimates. If you perform activities not listed here, check the list for the activity that most closely matches what you did to estimate your steps.
Activity Steps per Minute
Bowling 55 Cycling, 5 mph 55 Dancing (slow) 55 Shopping for groceries 60 Canoeing, 2.5 mph 70 Golfing (with a cart) 70 Volleyball (leisurely) 70 Rowing (leisurely) 75 Vacuuming 75 Washing the car 75 Window Cleaning 75 Painting 80 Mopping 85 Gardening, Moderate 90 Housework 90 Ping Pong 90 Ice Skating (leisurely 95 Dancing (non-contact) 100 Waxing the car 100 Tennis (doubles) 100 Aerobic dancing (low impact)115 Swimming (25 yrds/minute) 120 Volleyball (game) 120 Bicycling, 10 mph (min/mile)125 Weight training (90 sec. Between sets) 125 Basketball (leisurely, non-game.) 130 Snow Skiing, downhill 130 Mowing the lawn 135 Scrubbing the floor 140 Stair climbing 140 Aerobics step training 145 Badminton 150 Roller Skating (moderate) 150 Cross country snow skiing (leisurely) 155 Gardening, (heavy) 155 Hiking (no load) 155 Stair climber machine 160 Tennis (singles) 160 Water Skiing 160 Ice Skating (Competitive) 170 Dancing (fast) 175 Backpacking with a 10 lb load 180 Hiking with a 10 lb. load 180 Rowing machine 180 Judo (competitive) 185 Cycling, 15 mph (5min/mile) 200 Elliptical Jogger (medium) 200 Racquetball 205 Squash 205 Cross country snow skiing (moderate) 220 Basketball (game) 220 Swimming (50 yrds/min) 225 Handball 230 Backpacking with 30 lb load 235 Hiking with 30 lb load 235 Weight training (40sec. between sets) 255 Elliptical Jogger (fast) 270 Skipping Rope 285 Swimming (75 yrds/min) 290 Running 08mph (u.5 min/mile)305
This is how you calculate Steps per Minute:
For Example: Mowing the lawn
If you mow the lawn for 60 mins. you multiply your steps per minute by 60 (135 X 60 = 8.100 steps)
So for whatever activity you are doing from the above list just mulitply those steps with the amount of time it took you to do that particular activity.
If you are using a machine that calculates in miles the conversion would be approximately 2000 steps for every mile.
