3 Creative Ways to Get in 10,000 Steps Daily

With National Wellness Month approaching in August, BRD Sport wants to hone in on the importance of physical wellness and inform you how you can remain active throughout the summer and beyond. As the saying goes, movement is medicine. And guess what? You can determine your own medicine, your fitness routine that works for you. For instance, you may want to get the recommended 10,000 steps a day in one single workout, hike, or sports game, or simply divide up your steps throughout the day.

BRD Sport’s advice? Keep it simple and make it enjoyable. To help inspire you, BRD Sport has crafted three fun and creative ways to get in your daily recommended steps:

Try out a new sport.
Oftentimes, exercise can be defined by an activity or a sport. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or a rookie to the sports world, it never hurts to try something new! If anything, something new may not only push you outside of your comfort zone but also invite you to your next passion. Many of BRD Sport customers have caught onto to pickleball, the #1 fastest-growing sport in America. Don’t get tricked by its name! It has nothing to do with food pickles, in fact, it’s more of a sport that combines three popular net sports: tennis, badminton, and ping pong. If you find yourself catching onto the craze, in your next BRD Sport online purchase of over $35, you can get your pink in dink bag to put your pickleball gear in and rock the tagline on the courts. 

Explore more of your local surroundings.
It’s very easy to fall into autopilot mode especially when the majority of the jobs in the U.S. involve the same sedentary routine of driving to and from work and sitting down at work. To switch from being autopilot mode to being present, why not schedule in time for movement? Remember, keep it simple and how you can do that is exploring what’s in your everyday local surroundings. Take breaks from the computer screen during the day and go for a walk around your office building or your neighborhood. Need a little extra motivation? Invite a family member, coworker, or neighbor along for the walk. 

Start an accountability group with friends.
As the song goes, we all get by with a little help from our friends. It’s nice to have encouragement as you embark on achieving a new goal, so why not encourage others to join you? Starting up an accountability group is a great way to have fun, hold each other accountable, and challenge one another to follow through with individual fitness and health-related goals. A good starting point could be simply setting a group step count goal each week and ensuring every group member tracks their steps. 

And as we talk about movement, BRD Sport is all about making sure you have relief in your everyday motion and you aren’t letting any pain get in the way of playing your sports game or participating in your everyday fitness routine.
