Walking is great exercise and something many of us do on a regular basis. To encourage more consistent walking I’ve created a 30-Day Walk Til You Drop Step Challenge.
Get in 10,000 Steps Daily
Experts say that walking on average 10,000 steps a day will keep your heart healthy and help push oxygenated blood throughout your body. Research has shown the more steps you get in daily is better.
Sitting all day has become the new smoking and can lead to a plethora of heart problems so get moving.
This challenge will change up the daily walk and steps goal to keep things interesting and less monotonous.
On average a person who takes 2,000 steps has walked approximately a mile. Walk 10,000 steps and one has walked about 5 miles. Not bad!
Benefits Of Walking
I previously mentioned that walking improves heart health but it offers other benefits as well like building healthier bones, improving your mood and healthy weight loss.
You will obviously need good walking shoes and a positive attitude but you will need a way to track your steps as trying to keep track of it in your head can be challenging. I own a Garmin VivoSmart 4 fitness tracker which tracks my steps but feel free to use your Fitbit, Apple Watch or a free pedometer on your phone to track.
Join my FREE fitness accountability group where we motivate and encourage each other to do the very best each and every day.
