Even More Reasons to “Walk” Into Better Interest Rates

Have you already started an account with FitnessBank? If so, welcome back; we look forward to a bright future with you. For those still on the fence, we’re back with more reasons for why walking and greater interest rates are positive for you.


Last time, we discussed how FitnessBank rewards its members with better interest rates on their account by tracking their steps. The more steps, the better the rate. Today we’ll be discussing some of those specific reasons for why we’re so adamant that you get your steps in.

Better Interest Rates & Better Sleep?

As you’ve likely heard, sleep is paramount for those looking to ensure their better health. Seeing to 10,000 steps a day is quite the physical task. By day’s end, you’re more likely to be tired and thus more susceptible to a full night’s rest. 


Likewise, depriving yourself of a reasonable sleep schedule is just asking for problems. On the mild end, you’re looking at lethargy, brain fog, weakened immunity, increased chance of weight gain, and much more. Do it long term, and you may be looking at even more serious health issues, some irreversible.

Dealing With Anxiety And Depression

Does seasonal depression have you feeling low? Anxiety through the roof to the point of a near breakdown? We’ve all been there. Sometimes our stresses can get the better of us, especially when we don’t take the time to address and correct them.


Would you believe that just walking has an incredible impact on anxiety and depression. As we’ve noted before, walking provides the opportunity to clear your thoughts and process unbothered. This can help to put anything weighing heavily on our minds to rest, or at the very least give us the space to put things into their proper perspective.

Rejoining The Crowd

When we don’t make the effort for regular physical activity, each of the above-mentioned issues becomes a possibility. But aside from any health concern, there are also social repercussions. Whether feeling anxious or depressed, tired, or sick, this can lead you to skipping out on social outings.


Of course, this isn’t such a bad thing given the current state of the pandemic. But it’s still possible to attend a social gathering without putting others or yourself at risk. Not showing up as the best and most disciplined version of yourself in the lead up to the event will make you rethink showing up at all. Don’t miss out because of something that’s in your control.

Taking The Step With FitnessBank

More than anything, striving for your 10,000 steps a day is a great step for strengthening your good habits. This kind of discipline can become infectious, and you’ll likely see things carry over to other aspects of your life. The first example of this here is our rewards program for members!
