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

Ice Skating (leisurely 95
Dancing (non-contact) 100

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.
