Pedometers

What are Pedometers?

A pedometer is a little gadget that senses your body motion, counts your footsteps and determines the distance you have walked. To be effective, it has to be worn or attached to your body.

The best place to wear your pedometer is on your waist aligned directly over the knee. You can wear it whenever, wherever you want. However, some pedometers may not accurately measure distance or trail running.

The first pedometer was invented by Thomas Jefferson.

Benefits of Using a Pedometer?

    • If you can't afford to go to a gym or don't have time to go to a gym, clip on the pedometer and try to walk 10,000 steps a day.
    • 10,000 steps a day will help lower your blood pressure and decrease your risk of developing osteoporosis by increase your bone density.
  • The pedometer can help you boost your workout.
