Are you looking for weight loss motivation? Do you want to work out but need a little help getting started? Are you a competitive person? If so, I suggest that you look into the Fitbit step tracking bracelet. This bracelet counts your steps and allows you to challenge other Fitbit users to a daily challenge, a weekday challenge, a weekend challenge and a goal day challenge. Each challenge can hold up to ten people and each Fitbit user can be involved in as many as four challenges per day.
Fitbit Challenges are great motivators. Sometimes I find myself in challenges that I know there is no possible way for me to win or even come in at the top five spots. At this point, my strategy changes. I will do my best and my goal is to not come in last. Some Fitbit users have jobs that require walking such as a mail carrier. These users have huge daily goals and some even attend a gym after their workday has ended. My day is much different as I go to the gym in the morning, then find myself sitting at a desk for many hours afterwards. For me, 10,000 steps per day is a great goal if I do not get to the gym and 13,000 steps per day if I plan on working out. For the mail carrier, my 13,000 daily step goal would be toast way before their day had gotten in full swing.
Have you ever worn a pedometer or tracked your steps? What do you think your daily step average would be? Do you think you could make Fitbit’s recommended daily goal of 10,000 steps?
