Step to the Challenge.

Why 10,000? It’s a motivating activity level that requires frequent movement during the day. It reinforces healthy habits—like parking farther away or taking the stairs—and lowers your risk for many chronic conditions. That’s not all! This type of consistent activity boosts energy and has proven more effective at regulating healthy metabolism than one hour of exercise per day.

FAQs

What is 10K-A-Day?

10K-A-Day—the Life Time 10,000 Step Challenge is a fun, daily journey designed to help you move more as you visit fascinating places along virtual routes. By wearing your Fitbit, Garmin, or Jawbone activity monitor, and tracking steps online, you’ll boost your energy and improve your health.  The goal is to take 10,000 or more steps each day of the challenge.  Plus, you can have a chance to win some pretty awesome prizes.

Who can participate?

Life Time members with a Fitbit, Garmin, or Jawbone activity/steps tracker. With each recorded step, you’ll see your progress on one of our fun routes — from snow-capped mountains and coastline beaches to ancient castles and dense forests — with exciting photos and interesting descriptions that make your virtual journey seem like you’re actually there.

How does it work?

Studies show significant health benefits are derived from 10,000 steps a day, whether from everyday activities or combined with dedicated workout time. Once you sync your device with your Fitbit, Garmin, or Jawbone mobile app or website, your 10K-A-Day Challenge account will automatically be updated within 10 to 60 minutes. Watch your progress on the virtual route.

When does the program start?

10K-A-Day—the Life Time 10,000 Step Challenge begins March 1, 2016 and ends on April 11, 2016. While you see your progress online, use the web site to discover great-tasting recipes, create a walking route using MapWalk™, and visit the Resources page for links to the web’s best walking, nutrition, and exercise sites.

How does the team competition work?

Inviting friends to compete as part of your team is optional, though friendly competition is often highly motivating. The goal is to reinforce a lasting exercise habit with a fun, friendly competition that emphasizes consistency over athletic feats. Each day you record 10,000 steps or more you earn a token for your team. The more tokens your team earns the higher your team score. Read How It Works on the Team page to learn more.

What are Solemates?

You can stay connected to others who are not on your team by inviting them to become “Solemates”. You can encourage and support these friends and they can do the same for you. Similar to the friends you choose as teammates, the goal is to reinforce a lasting exercise habit with a fun, friendly camaraderie.

Why 10,000 steps?

10K-A-Day is based on research showing active individuals, (those who achieve 10,000 steps a day or more) have lower risk for many chronic conditions including heart disease, some cancers, diabetes, and obesity. People who are regularly active also report greater energy, better mood, improved sleep, and other quality of life benefits.

10,000 steps seem like a lot. Can I really reach that goal?

Achieving 10,000 steps a day is a challenge for many. That’s okay. You can work up to it gradually and achieve health benefits no matter what your current activity level. Just wearing your device motivates individuals to add another 2000 without a lot of extra effort. Then, after work or dinner, most people check their steps, see they’re at 5000 or 6000 steps, and decide to go for a 2-3 mile walk or run to reach 10,000 steps.

Will I lose weight participating in 10K-A-Day?

Individual weight loss results vary and participation in the Challenge does not guarantee weight loss. Factors such as diet and genetic makeup, overall health, or physiological differences may influence weight loss. Please consult with your physician before beginning any new nutrition or exercise program. 

What if I have questions about the program?

Please email 10kadaychallenge@lifetimefitness.com or ask a fitness professional at your local Life Time club.
