Walking Challenge

WALK10k Challenge


As a Certified Medical Fitness Facility, Galter LifeCenter is proud to be participating in the Medical Fitness Association's 16th Annual Medical Fitness Week and WALK10k Challenge, September 14 - 20, 2020.

Welcome to the Medical Fitness Week WALK10k Challenge! 10,000 steps a day (the equivalent of walking about five miles) is safe and effective whether you’re already active or just getting started. A good goal is to increase your daily steps each week by 500 per day until you are normally achieving 10,000 steps a day. Join the fun by participating in the WALK10k Challenge and take a step towards a healthier lifestyle!

How to participate:

  1. Select an activity tracker to monitor your steps. You can use a pedometer, fit bit or there are lots of free activity tracking apps available.
  2. Get accustomed to wearing your tracking device prior to starting the program. The best location is on your waist band in the midline of either thigh.
  3. The first official day of the program is Monday, September 14th. Begin tracking your steps!
  4. At the end of each day, enter your total daily steps on your log sheet, then reset your device to be prepared for the next walking day!
  5. Continue to follow this process throughout the week, from Monday, September 14th through Sunday, September 20th.
  6. Submit your completed WALK10k log sheet by Friday, September 25 to the Courtesy Desk or you can email it to NMorton@schosp.org.
