Converting other Physical Activities to Steps

Posted

If your organization is hosting a wellness program using pedometers, one of the questions that is often asked, "Counting steps as I walk is fine, but I do other physical activities like swimming.  How can I get credit for these activities in our program?".  Depending upon the 'rules' of your program, you may want to use this conversion chart (Click Here), to convert other activities to 'steps'.  No, it's not an exact science - but, it's the best estimate of other physical activities and how they can be converted to steps.  

Normally, a walking wellness program only uses 'steps' and the measurement of activity... but, for those that want to include other exercise activities, this is the best conversion chart we have found.
