Enjoy being active every day

The 10,000 Steps Challenge not only encourages you to walk more, but also to participate in other activities you enjoy and that fit in with your daily lifestyle.

As the pedometer will not accurately record steps when you are participating in some activities, use the information below to assist you in converting your minutes of physical activity into steps.

When you are getting a little bored or feel you need a change, look to try something new or go back to an activity that you have previously enjoyed! Remember, being active every day is important for a healthy body and mind.
