Free-dose of Energy Now: Walk On
Walking is one of the best forms of exercise you can treat your body to. Not only is it convenient and cost-effective, but it’s easy on the joints, doesn’t require any special skill, and it burns almost as many calories as jogging.
A pedometer is the perfect way to enhance your walking. First of all, it’s fun to know how many steps you’ve taken, how far you’ve walked, and how long you’ve been walking. Secondly, a pedometer helps you track your progress and set realistic goals for yourself – goals that will help you realize success and keep you motivated.

The information in this handout will help you understand pedometer use a bit better. You’ll learn how to establish your current walking baseline, how to increase your steps in a progressive and healthy manner, and get a few ideas for how to ‘step it up’ throughout your day.
PEDOMETERS: There are a lot of different pedometers on the market. Some are better than others and if you’re serious about walking your way to health invest in a good one.
