Treasure Trails Take on New Meaning with a Fitbit

I wonder how many of you, dear readers were given a FITBIT for Christmas. A Fitbit is the latest in measuring how many steps you take in a day, how far you walk, what your heart rate is doing and other fascinating and interesting things that you do in a normal day.  There are nine different types of Fitbit and the company claims there is a Fitbit tracker for you whether you want to use heart rate to take your fitness to the next level or just want to see how your steps add up each day.

Treasure Trails Take on New Meaning with a Fitbit

At the moment I just want to see how my steps add up and am finding it quite fascinating.  Since 28th December, I have walked a total distance of 92 miles and I’ve climbed 659 floors! I do think that seeing the stats drives some behaviour as I will often walk upstairs just to get another number added to the total floors climbed! And I am excited that I am on track for walking 1000 miles in a 12 month period - that’s just 19 and a bit miles a week and so far this year I have achieved that. I do have a walking weekend booked in April and a walking holiday to look forward to later in the year. I also have several excuses lined up as to why I haven’t walked more so far….

We love statistics

Choose a Treasure Trail

With a fitbit on your wrist, you may have an incentive to walk more and what better way to walk without even realising you are doing it - is to tackle a Treasure Trail!

Most of the Treasure Trails we have in the catalogue are approximately two miles long and that equates to around 5,000 steps - depending of course on the size of your steps!

The government used to recommend that we all try and walk 10,000 steps a day, now they are suggesting 30 minutes of aerobic activity a day which is less steps, but you need to walk faster!!

Either way if you have an interest in keeping fit, then we think you should plan to do at least one Treasure Trail at the weekends, in half terms and holidays and strap on a fitbit or other kind of pedometer and get your average steps in a week up higher.

We would love to hear how you get on and how many steps you take to do a Treasure Trail. Contact us through the website or facebook or comment below!
