I purchased my pedometer about 2 months ago and I never looked back. I had never worn a pedometer before but after reading all of the studies on inactivity I told myself that I needed to stay active during the day and what better way to track yourself. It's suggested to walk 10000 steps per day and with a sedentary lifestyle I found that I was only walking about 2000 steps daily! Now I always know where I am on my step count (whether I need to get moving or not!). Once I incorporated the treadmill desk into my workplace I easily hit 12000 steps daily and am usually ranked in the top 10 in daily steps (nationally) on the LifeSpan Fintess Club. This little device also tracks my daily Calorie count! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to become a little more health conscious.
