    • Abstract:
      If someone is a numbers person and likes to challenge oneself, a pedometer—a small device that clips to the belt or waist band and counts the steps taken—may be just what one needs. Counting steps has become very popular, because it's an easy way to track the endurance and fitness. If the distance to be walked is increased, or one meets daily goals, the feedback—and sense of satisfaction&mdsh;is instantaneous. Because health and government agencies recognize the rewards of walking, they set a goal of 10.000 steps a day. But don't let that big number be scary. Most busy people, on average, already log 2,000 to 4,000 steps a day. INSET: something to get you started.
