Your pedometer is a helpful tool for increasing your physical activity. Wearing your pedometer daily will motivate you to increase the number of steps you take. You may find yourself parking further away from the entrance to stores in order to reach your daily steps goal. The more steps you take, the more changes you will feel in your body. Your cardiovascular system will improve as it pumps blood more efficiently throughout your body and that will make each step easier. Your pedometer counts each step and displays your result numerically. Since the results are numeric, tracking your steps in miles or kilometers is simple.
