How to Walk Your Way to Fitness in 2017

How to Walk Your Way to Fitness in 2017

If you’re new to the Stridekick community, or the fun of fitness tracking more generally, you might be wondering how our platform + a fitness tracker can help you walk your way to a fitter and healthier in 2017.

Well, we’re here to help. Here at Stridekick, we constantly round up the latest fitness, nutrition, healthy mindset/behavior change and wearable tech news to keep you motivated all year long. As a jumpstart (or refresher course if you’ve been with us for awhile), take a look at these resources.

Walk for Health 101

First of all, why walk at all? In 2016, we investigated the particular health benefits that come with walking — plus, why walking makes a great cornerstone to any health regime. Read more here — Is Walking Enough to Stay Healthy?

Once you’re convinced putting one foot in front of the other can reap serious changes for your health, take a deep dive into the now-ubiquitous measure of hoofing it 10,000 steps per day. Reaching this benchmark day after day can really take your health to the next level. Read more here — Why Walking 10,000 Steps Per Day Could Be the Change You Need

Next up, if weight loss is your goal in the new year, walking can help you get there. A few small changes to your usual stepping routine can help kick-start this process, as we detailed here — 6 Ways to Lose Weight from Walking

If you’re looking for more specific exercise ideas to boost your motivation, we rounded up some fun walking and jogging workouts, which are sure to send you sailing past your Stridekick competitors. Read more here — Fun Walking Workouts That’ll Send Your Step Count Sky-High

Next, when you feel motivation slipping, or if you’re just not sure how to fit in steps, we’ve got plenty of tips for that, too. For example, user data reveal that most Stridekickers don’t walk much on Sundays, which prompted us to outline some of our favorite behavior-change hacks to keep steps consistent every day of the week here.

Lastly, the fun part: rewards. At Stridekick, buddying up or participating in challenges helps drive our users to stay consistent with physical activity. But sometimes, a little extra motivation is needed in the form of fun incentives. This year, follow our guide for healthy treats, rather than the type that detract from your goals.

We hope these resources will spark the inspiration and motivation needed to make 2017 your best year yet. Happy stepping!
