Secrets of Success

10,000 Steps



I find that wearing a pedometer all the time the best way to get in my 10,000 steps. I find myself parking far away, walking while talking on the phone, taking things to co-workers rather than dropping it in the mail. It all adds up to extra steps and extra calories burned.

  • I always wear my Omron Pedometer. Rarely get 10,000 steps in a day. Once in a while I come close. I'll keep on trying. It's a habit now to see how far I go every day. - by J2740LOU

  • My sister has done 10,000 steps/daily since Jan 1. Reading your comments along with her walking the steps gives me the incentive to buy a pedometer! Thank you! emoticon - by ARTISTGATOGIRL

  • I love my pedometer, though it isn't as accurate as I would like. I walk the same route daily, and the steps vary quite a bit, though I know my stride varies also. - by COO_KIE

    I also wear a pedometer with the goal of 10,000 steps. My pedometer separates cardio steps so I can track them for fitness. Love my pedometer. - by WIDGET65
