Start! Physical Activity Program
Commit to logging your physical activity regularly. If you reach the quarterly goal, you will be entered for prize drawings. Those that reach 1 million steps by December 31st will receive a “1 Million Step Club” prize.
Physical activity is part of a healthy lifestyle. The CDC recommends that adults get 150 minutes of physical activity per week. The START! Physical Activity tracker helps you track your activity and encourages you to live an active lifestyle.
The START! tracker is easy to use. Log your physical activity daily, weekly, or monthly. Figure out what works best for you and then commit to logging activity on a regular basis.
You can enter steps or active minutes in the tracker. Activities like taking the stairs, walking, and yard work are all part of living an active lifestyle. The START! tracker will convert active minutes into steps to help you reach your goal. For example, 30 minutes of yard work will convert to 4,350 steps.
One pedometer per person is available, upon request at Health Plus, but having a pedometer is not necessary to participate in this program.
