Wednesday Workout Tip: Track your steps

Good morning, good morning.

How many steps do you take in a day? This will largely depend on your job, but for most of us it won’t be that many.

I encourage you to go to your local running/fitness store (or even Costco) and purchase a relatively inexpensive pedometer. This will give you a good idea of how active you are throughout the day. They are not 100% accurate and will not be able to measure activities such as cycling or swimming, but they are better than nothing.

You should aim to get 10,000 steps per day. It sounds like a lot, but you can do it!

Remember to wear it grocery shopping and around the house – you probably walk more than you think.

Happy walking.
