BANNOCKBURN, IL– (Marketwire) — 09/07/11 — Make fall your most fit season of all. OMRON Healthcare teamed up with Bob Greene — Oprah Winfrey’s personal trainer and author of new “20 Years Younger: Look Younger, Feel Younger, Be Younger” — to help you renew your commitment to health and fall back into a fitness routine with the ultimate walking partner — OMRON Pedometers.
And since the walking you already do is a first step to increasing your mileage and making every step count toward your fitness goal, walking is an easy way to keep up a lifetime of healthy habits — especially during the upcoming holiday season.
A Numbers Game
When you know your numbers, you’ll grow your numbers. Using a pedometer can help you figure out how many steps you are already taking, whether it’s a few hundred walking to the bus or a couple thousand going out for that lunchtime walk, and keep you on track to reaching the recommended 10,000 steps a day (equivalent to five miles). By using smart sensor technology, an accurate pedometer from OMRON improves awareness of your activity level, enabling you to set simple short and long term goals and know when you’ve surpassed them.
According to Bob, walking your way to fitness can be made even more effective by following a healthy diet and getting enough sleep. In fact, they go hand-in-hand. An early morning walk can be a natural sleep aid, so Bob recommends fueling up in the morning by supercharging your oatmeal with a mix of rich-colored berries, like blueberries and raspberries — and getting the energy you need to walk your way to fitness.
Available online, at sporting goods retailers and select drug stores nationwide, OMRON Pedometers offer a variety of different features to suit many needs, from simply tracking steps — whether at your hip, in your pocket or clipped in your bag — to counting calories and fat grams burned, to PC downloading capability.
