The one with stepper stomping and daily steps

Meet my new favourite workout phenomenon.

She isn’t too fancy.

She’s unassuming.

But she sure gets the job done.

Oh yeah and she cost $1.50.

Isn’t she glorious? Best $1.50 I ever spent. I got her off trademe (the NZ version of Craigslist) and have already spent many a mile stomping away.

Reasons why she is the best thing ever:

– So perfect for when it is raining and I dont know how to get anywhere close to my daily step goal

– Ideal for when I want to talk on the phone but don’t want to just sit around while I do it- not as noisey as a treadmill and I dont puff quite as much on it either 🙂

– Small enough to drag all over the house and even into the office when I know I will be making a lot of calls.

– One of the cheapest pieces of workout equipment I have ever bought.

– Ummm, is it me or is she ADORABLE!?!

– And finally, quite effective at getting the heart rate up – I feel like it’s pretty similar to walking? What do you guys think?

It is also really important to reward oneself for all that stepping 😉

And speaking of stepping, how many steps do you guys do a day? I used to easily crank out 20,000 a day when I was waitressing but now sitting down with clients all day if I don’t go for a run (and I don’t run every day) it is WAY harder for me to even get to 10,000! Scary right? Also my sister has informed me that you are supposed to do 10,000 a day and that is not including your workout/run?!?

Thoughts – is it 10,000 steps total or 10,000 steps + a workout that is ideal to hit?

Does anyone use a stepper?

What is your must-have piece of at-home workout equipment?

  2. What, that is a good butt workout? I would be sold on that alone! I don’t have one, but I do remember when they were all the rage. Perfect for small spaces! With my desk job, I totally struggle to get in maybe 2,000 steps when I don’t have a run that day. I was pretty shocked at that fact. But it’s hard to keep a train of thought going at work when I keep getting out of my chair to go walk around the office! At least drinking a big glass of water all of the time will get me up to use the restroom 🙂
