HEALTH & WELLNESS

Why walk? Walking 10,000 steps a day has been found to be effective in meeting
the U.S. Surgeon General’s recommendation of 30 minutes of moderate
daily activity. Research shows that a walking program reduces the risk of obesity,
diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, improves cognitive function in older adults,
and increases psychological well-being.

Why use a pedometer? Studies show that wearing a pedometer, with its instant
and constant feedback, is more motivating than simply logging exercise time—
which means your clients walk more, improving their health and reducing their
risk factors for disease. ACCUSPLIT’s Activity Wellness Programs, based on
research by experts like Dr. Stephen Blair of the Cooper Institute, Dr. Abby
King of Stanford, and Drs. James Hill and John Peters of America on the Move,
offer simple, effective guidelines to help your clients get the most out of their
pedometers and reach their wellness goals.
