I created this 14 day Marching Workout Program to help you meet the daily recommended healthy goal of 10,000 steps per day. Whether you are just getting back into a fitness routine, or want a fun and effective way to add steps to your daily step count, this Marching Workout Program is perfect for you. Find a time that’s convenient for you, and add steps into your day, right at home.
One mile of walking adds up to around 2,000 steps. To get your 10,000 steps per day, you need to step for 5 miles. FitBits are a fun way to help track steps each day. But if you don’t have a FitBit, no problem. I’ve measured the steps for you for each of the workouts below.
Generally speaking, 30 minutes of continuous stepping adds up to approximately 4,000 steps. If you’ve had a day with a lot of sitting, feel free to switch to a marching workout that has the amount of steps you need… or repeat one of the shorter ones twice.
Once you feel ready to keep challenging and strengthening your body, be sure to add other cross training activities like resistance training (to help combat the loss of muscle mass that occurs with aging), stretching (to improve your range of motion and help prevent injury) and other forms of cardiovascular activity (like step aerobics, dance based cardio, or interval training) to keep your body in top shape.
