A Great Time of Year for a Fitbit
What a great time of year to be walking, hiking, running, biking – you name it, it’s just really nice being outdoors with the cooler weather here on the east coast of the U.S.A. Being outdoors recreating (re-creating, if you will) offers so much on all levels of health and fitness. I for one got into walking more frequently last winter and it had such a positive effect on my well-being. It certainly improved my gait and improved the mobility in my lower back – helping to relieve some stiffness in the old joints I often contend with. I started walking more last year for one very reason: The Fitbit!
If you are not familiar with Fitbit, now is the time. The Fitbit is a pumped up pedometer that can keep track of your steps, stairs climbed, calories burned and much more. What makes it a great tool is the supporting software that accompanies it. There is no doubt that wearing the Fitbit keeps you motivated to get in extra walking (activity) and soon those 10,000 steps a day are an achievable goal. Most interesting is that the focus on walking (which is sometimes poo-poo’d by some as “why bother”) can really help you lose weight, improve mobility and reduce stress.
I don’t generally endorse many products but this is one situation that I can 100% state is is well worth the investment folks!
