Building up your steps per day is crucial to ensure your body is burning as many calories as it can outside of the gym.
These calories can be burnt almost anywhere at anytime, and build the basis for weight loss as we cannot always be in a gym.
Ways we can help ourselves reach our steps include:
Go for a walk first thing in the morning, clean the house, take your dog for a walk after work, take the stairs at work instead of the elevator, get involved in a team sport or work group sport day, mow the lawns or wash your car once a week, do the shopping.
It's that simple.
These everyday activities allow the body to burn calories at an increased rate as opposed to sitting or lying down.
