Does exercise other than walking count?  Absolutely!  Use this conversion chart to convert your activity to steps. Aim for 2 hours and 30 minutes of activity a week.

  • Try to be active for 30 minutes, five times a week.
  • If you don’t have time for 30 minutes of activity, get moving for shorter 10-minute periods throughout the day. Walking for 10 minutes burns about 50 calories.
