I am fortunate to work in a school with a large campus. This means quite a bit of walking from one building to another. After reading Michael Mosley’s Fast Exercise I learnt that the the optimum number of steps a day for health and fitness is 10,000. As I didn’t have a clue how many steps I actually I decided to invest in a Fitbit. At first I thought this number of steps was huge.
This tiny little device is excellent and encourages you to walk more in the day. You can slip it into your pocket and forget about it all day. I was pleasantly surprised that I was already doing in excess of 10,000 steps. I may try set myself a goal of 200 hundred extra a day.
How many steps do you do in a day?
