About the Research

Researchers have established:

Those who burn at least 1,500-2,000 kcals per week in a conscious activity — such as climbing stairs, walking and formal exercise — show vastly better health profiles and longevity than sedentary people.

About the Research, cont.

Japanese scientist Dr. Yoshiro Hatano has established:

Someone who moves 10,000 steps a

day will burn 300 kcals above and

beyond what they normally do.

10,000 steps per day is approximately:

Dr. Yoshiro Hatano

  • Five miles per day for an adult

  • Four miles per day for a child

(2000 steps  1 mile)

About the Research, cont.

Average sit-down workers (including school children) take about 3,000 to 5,000 steps a day…but should get another 5,000 to 7,000 steps each day for greater health benefits.

Why Step Counters? funding and/or support for the NEW LIFESTYLES

Several researchers — including David Bassett Jr. (Univ. of Tenn.) — have found step counters:

  • Help people find the motivation to get those extra steps

  • Add some “pizzazz” to walking and help people measure and meet goals

NEW LIFESTYLES offers DIGI-WALKER™ step counters (SW series) in its program kits.

  • Cover-protected buttons (often not on other brands)

  • Repairable clips and LCDs

  • Well-designed and easy-to-read display

  • Compact size

NEW LIFESTYLES offers a “win-win” fundraising program:

Step 2: Selecting Equipment and Program Materials

Keep these tips in mind when making selections:

  • Choose step counters with features appropriate for your users

  • Make sure clips and LCDs can be repaired/replaced

  • Make sure batteries can be replaced easily

  • Look for covered buttons so totals aren’t accidentally cleared

  • Make sure the security strap keeps the pedometer attached to the body. (Avoid breakaway Velcro models or straps requiring a belt loop.)

  • Compare “apples” to “apples” — not all program kits are equal! Look for quality materials.

  • Compare internal mechanisms and ask questions. A step counter is only as good as its internal mechanism.

Step 2: Selecting Materials, cont.
