If a person works out regularly, do they really need to use a pedometer to count their daily steps?
I used to think the answer was no.
My perception of pedometers has changed.
Before, I saw pedometers as something that people might use if they are not working out regularly, to make sure they are getting in at least the minimum of 10,000 steps a day.
Now I see them as a great motivation tool, even for people who have a weekly workout routine.
I have been working out six days a week for almost six months now. I was curious to find out how many steps I take a day including my workouts.
I wore a pedometer to find out…
I took 17,035 steps. (including my workout)
I’ve set a new goal of a minimum of 20,000 steps per day including workouts.
Hey, let’s face it ALL movement counts!
And with these last ten pounds sticking on me like glue, I am ready to “step” it up in every way I can.
I bought one for my hubby and he is counting his steps too.
What are some of your thoughts about pedometers?
