About the Clicker Electronic Pedometer
To become more active, we need accountability, guidance, encouragements, reminders, and affirmations that will subtly work in the background on a daily basis to help us move more. Clickers accomplish that and more. Consider these interesting facts about walking (“clicking”):
- Click 20 steps to burn a calorie!
- Click 100 steps per minute to achieve excellent metabolism stimulation.
- Walking or jogging 3,000 steps in 30 minutes is an ideal daily fitness plan.
- 10,000 total steps daily can maintain a trim, fit, healthy body!
As you begin using a “Clicker”, there are 3 mandatory keys for success…
First, you must set a “steps per day” goal in writing! 5,000 is a good starting goal, work towards 10,000.
Second, use a quality pedometer. They are not created equal. Our Clicker is one of 3 brands recommended by University of Tennessee researchers who found that others “over counted” steps by 45% or under counted by 25%. Accuracy is a key!
Third, record your steps daily. Our “Tague Tracker” phone app (“Healthtrac”) is a quick, easy to use tool to track your steps over time. It is free to everyone on any of our programs (including our Essential Nutrient Package by Auto Delivery). Journaling on paper works too.
