 How To Get Back In Shape


One of the least expensive Health Investments you can make is a Pedometer.

Wear a pedometer everyday. Log your steps, set new goals and enjoy the improvements in your health, your weight, your looks and the way you feel. The pedometer is a good tool to help you get started getting back in shape.


What is a Pedometer?

Pedometers clip to your belt or waistband and record each time you take a step. If you have trouble with your waistband, choose a pocket model.

 How Many Steps Should I Take each Day?

The goal is to walk at least 10,000 steps per day (eventually).

OR after taking a baseline of how many steps you average a day, set a goal to increase the number of steps you take by 10%, for example. So, if you start with 2000 steps per day, next weeks goals will be 2200 (2000 x.10 = 200 + 2000 = 2200).

Either way, you must log the number of steps you take each day so that you can chart your progress. Print out our basic Activity Log to record your steps.


Choose a Pedometer

Pedometers for walking can be very basic and inexpensive. They vary in price, features and accuracy.

Even though inexpensive pedometers may be inaccurate, they can still serve their purpose to get you motivated, logging your daily walking.

However, for under $25 you can get a fairly accurate pedometer, the Omron HJ 112.  The Omron HJ 112 is ideal for the robust waistline as it allows you to attach it to your belt or carry it in your pocket or bag and still get an accurate reading (+/- 5%).  

The OmronHJ-720ITC cost a little more but allows you to download your data directly to your computer to keep track automatically. Seeing your progress is a great motivator. 

Choose a pedometer that makes sense for you and start getting back in shape with each step you take.

Omron HJ 112 and the OmronHJ-720ITC.

(We like Amazon's prices
especially when we can get free shipping!)

Don’t let the price stop you from getting a pedometer. You can always get one for under $5, but you will find that you’ll want to upgrade eventually.

Pick up a copy of Mark Fenton's Pedometer Walking book and get started walking for better health and weight loss.


See Walking for more information on walking for fitness. 
To increase your walking workouts, consider Nordic Pole Walking.  Nordic walking poles can also be helpful to use if you have joint pain or balance problems.
