10,000 Steps


Walking has been described as the most underrated prescription for weight loss and a long, healthy life. But what's the magic in 10,000 steps?

10,000 steps a day began as a fitness program in Japan over 40 years ago. Fitness is part of Japan's cultural heritage, but the country was slipping into an obesity crisis in the 1960's – sound familiar? Dr. Yoshiro Hatano set out to determine an appropriate activity level for tackling weight loss. At 10,000 steps the average person will be burning about 500 extra calories a day. Over the course of a year that equates to a 50 pound weight loss!

The '10,000 steps' goal puts a focus on the accumulation of activity across the whole day – inserting physical activity naturally into your very busy life. With the FitHeads System adding steps becomes thoroughly integrated into your lifestyle. As you change you're thinking and take control, you'll find it much easier to stick with than any exercise program you may have tried in the past. In fact, you'll find that many of your 10,000 steps aren't experienced as “exercise” at all, but as everyday life activity.

Simply put, there's no exercise regimen that's easier and more effective than walking 10,000 steps a day at a moderate pace if your objectives are steady weight loss, getting fit and staying fit. If that's what you're looking for, then the FitHeads Fit Kit is for you.
