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.

Best Answer

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.

How far is 10,000 steps? 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.

I seem to recall that the Mile is 1000 paces. A Pace is two steps. Two Steps for an average person would be 5.28 feet. This multiplied by 1000 is 5280 feet.

1 step : 0.6 metres

10 steps : 6.6 metres

100 steps : 78 metres

1,000 steps : 960 steps

10,000 steps : 12,000 metres

100,000 steps : 150,000 metres

1,000,000 steps : 1,860,000 metres

So 1 steps 1.86m and 10000 steps 18,600 metres

then

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.

It is based on how big your foot is. But you can know by measuring the length of your foot (the unit is miles) and multiply it by 10,000(the number of steps)
