How You Can Improve Your Walking Routine In 3 Easy Ways

We all know that walking has many benefits for one’s health and is also a fun and easy way to exercise. But how do we know how much to walk to burn enough calories and fat?

Experts recommend that walking 10,000 steps in a day will burn 500 calories, and doing that five days a week will burn 3,500 calories – enough to lose 500g (1lb) of body fat. (Source: National Health Service, UK )

With this, we should aim to walk as much as we can! This means more staircase-climbing instead of using the lift! Or you could try walking (if the distance is walkable) instead of driving / taking the public transport to your destination. Small steps like these are actually big steps toward a better & healthier lifestyle!

But first, you need to bear in mind some items needed to make your walk a pleasant and fun one!

  • You would need proper shoes & attire – make sure your shoes are proper, sturdy shoes for walking. Your attire should be comfortable &  loose-fitting!
  • Get enough water to stay hydrated. Keep a water bottle close to you while walking!
  • Have a pedometer with you to keep track on the number of steps, calories, fat burnt, distance walked, exercise time and average speed that you have clocked!

For pedometers, choose OSIM uWalk – Tri Axis Pocket Pedometer to fit into your daily walking routine.

OSIM uWalk uses multi-directional 3D motion sensor technology to measure more accurately than conventional pedometers. Its smart-detection feature automatically determines if you are walking, giving you an accurate step count.

OSIM uWalk in White, Purple and Green

OSIM uWalk is only available on OSIM Webshop. Please visit www.OSIM.com for more details.
