For a while was trying to get steps as a main goal. This isn’t working for me. So I had a think, and decided active minutes was a much better goal.
There was an article recently about the origin of 10k steps: as I recall, it came from a doctor in Japan encouraging office workers to get up from their work desks and get some exercise. There was no basis for 10k, it was simply a target to increase movement.
I believe the idea is to get 60 minutes of total exercise daily. As that’s based on your average resting heart rate, the more you exercise, the more you’ll need to be active to get to the 60 minutes goal over time.
Your Fitbit tracks exercise minutes. Get it up to 60 or more!
