People who count their steps every day are not only active but also less likely to have heart diseases and fractured bones, based on a study. Analysts studied the data of 1,927 participants who recorded their steps with a pedometer. The participants had 7,500 steps daily and one hour and thirty minutes productive exercise weekly. The study shows that participants who used pedometer were 44% unlikely to have fractured bones and 66% were less likely to have a heart attack and stroke.

According to Tess Harris, an instructor at St George’s University of London in the UK, “Increasing your walking and maintaining this can reduce your risk of heart attacks, strokes, and fractures over the next few years”. Part takers in the study obtained coaching and were encouraged to have a step journal that can help them have sensible goals. Moreover, researchers think that pedometers make people watch their steps and this support is a big help to have a rewarding outcome.
