Health and Wellness

 
 

To help you and your team stay on track, use this chart as a guideline.

A reasonable goal is to work up to walking 8,000 steps or more a day—so to get there, plan to increase your daily activity by about 500 steps every week!

Recommended Walking Plan

Week Steps per day
1 4,500
2 5,000
3 5,500
4 6,000
5 6,500
6 7,000
7 7,500
8 8,000

Average Distances

  • 2,000 steps = about 1 mile
  • 10,000 steps = about 5 miles

Try to walk at a brisk pace of about 100 steps per minute to maximize your walk!

  • 20 minutes = 1 mile
  • 40 minutes = 4,000 steps = half your daily goal!

Mix in an Adelphi group fitness class for some variety in your routine! Conversions:

  • 3,400 steps = Bandilates, Pilates, Tone & Stretch, Abs & Arms, Yoga
  • 5,000 steps = Zumba, Panther Power, Kick Boxing, Cycle
