Walk to Your Weight-Loss Goal

To get the health benefits of walking, it’s recommended that you take 10,000 steps a day.

How to get to 10,000 steps


100-1,000 steps

Park further from the shops, get off the bus one stop sooner, take the stairs, avoid escalators or take a brisk five-minute coffee-break walk.

1,000-5,000 steps

Try walking while you are on the phone or take a 20-minute coffee-break walk. Get up from your desk a few times a day and walk for 5 minutes.

5,000-10,000 steps

Use the stairs instead of the elevator, take a 40-minute dog walk and take two 20-minute coffee-break walks.

Walking more is an easy way to begin your active lifestyle. Try walking at least 5,000 steps a day and increase them until you reach that 10,000-step goal.

Tip: Invest in a fitness tracker or phone app to help you keep track. Many phones already have a built-in pedometer and can remind you to walk or congratulate you when you’ve hit your steps.


Before embarking on any physical activity, please consult your physician.

Always read the label – use only as directed.
