Did You Know
that you take between 2,000 and 2,500 steps during an hour of pickleball? For an average adult, that’s comparable to walking a mile!
We’ve all heard the recommendation to try to get 10,000 steps every day. Why? Because it’s an easy, attainable goal that keeps you active and moving for a good portion of the day. We all know that activity is a good thing.
Who’s Up For A Challenge?
We’re issuing a challenge to all of our members. The challenge is simply – take steps, win prizes.
You’ll need a fitness tracker of some kind; a Fitbit, Garmin, Polar, or another wearable device, or a step-counting app on your phone.
You’ll also need to create an account on https://www.inkin.com/, and connect your fitness tracker to that account.
Two Ways To Win
The challenge begins October 1st and continues through October 31st. Your fitness tracker and the inKin web site will keep track of your steps, you just have to move. Play lots of pickleball! Walk. Run. Dance. Just keep moving!
