Walking is a great way to get fit, keep healthy, and lose weight. However, most Americans only walk 3000 or 4000 steps per day, which is not enough to make a significant difference for their bodies.
The 10,000 steps program encourages people to increase their activity level by walking more each day. It's easy to participate in and a great way to gradually increase your activity level if you're new to exercise.
To participate in the program, you simply wear a pedometer and see how many steps you take throughout the day while going about your usual activities. Then you gradually build up the number of steps you take until you're regularly taking 10,000 steps per day. By doing this you'll improve your overall health and fitness and help control your weight.
