symplr 2021 Steps Challenge

Mon January 11 - Mon February 15 Overland Park, KS 66210 US Directions


Overland Park, KS US 66210


Welcome to the symplr 8,000 steps challenge.  

Why a 8,000-step goal? Here’s why: It adds up to about four miles each day for most people, which includes about 30 minutes of daily exercise. The health benefits? “Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health found that 30 minutes of walking each day cut stroke risk by a minimum of 20%.” The Centers for Disease Control recommends 150 minutes of exercise per week, which equates to about 30 minutes per day. 

Don’t have a smartwatch or pedometer?  Don’t let that stop you.  You don’t need a smartwatch, fitness band, or pedometer to track your steps. Your phone can track how many steps you take and how far you walk all by itself, assuming you just carry it with you in your pocket.
