Exercise
Length and Distance

How far is 10,000 steps?

I hear this is how much I'm supposed to walk every day, but it's hard to picture what that really means in terms of distance.

It varies based on stride length, but 10,000 steps is generally about 5 miles of walking. If that sounds like a lot, don't worry—recent research has questioned whether 10,000 steps a day is actually the best health goal.

It turns out this "guideline" was originally a marketing tactic. In 1965, a Japanese company named their pedometers what translates to "the 10,000 step meter”—perhaps because the Japanese character for “10,000” resembles a person walking—and the idea spread from there.

Steps aren’t as much of a measure of a healthy lifestyle as general activity levels. CDC's current exercise recommendations for adults are 150 minutes of moderately intense activity per week, with activities that strengthen muscles at least two days per week.

Depends on how big your steps are - but the average person would walk around 5 miles if they took 10,000 steps

An average person has a stride length of approximately 2.1 to 2.5 feet. That means that walking 10,000 steps would be walking almost 5 miles.

It depends on how many steps you take per centimetre. As a millipede 10,000 steps equates to about 30cm for me.

I assume you aren't a millipede so this information is probably not that useful for you.

10,000 steps means approximately 5 miles.

It burns 400-500 calories.

You could lose about one pound per week in this case.

Trust me this is not easy initially but fruitful for people who wanna lose weight.

An average person has a stride length of approximately 2.1 to 2.5 feet. That means that it takes over 2,000 steps to walk one mile, and 10,000 steps would be almost 5 miles.

It depends on how big your step is and you probably don't take the same size step every time so there is no answer the answer would be infinite

Actually, An average person has a stride length of approximately 2.1 to 2.5 feet. That means that it takes over 2,000 steps to walk one mile,.... Soo, 10,000 steps would be almost 5 miles.

Depends on your step length, a casual step of a person of

average height and leg length is about 70 cm; which would make that

distance 7 kilometres.
