Walking Goals: How to Plan for Your Success

At FitnessBank, your walking goals can literally save you money. If you have a checking account with us, you can sync your steps to our step tracker app. The more you walk, the lower the overall interest rates on your account will be. 

That said, it’s good to have a solid plan for making sure you get your steps in daily. We’ve come up with a few tips to follow to keep your walking regimen in check with relative ease. From proper goal setting, to knowing your strengths and addressing your weaknesses, and more.

Knowing Your Limitations

We cannot stress enough the importance of knowing your limitations when it comes to physical activity. It is important to be aware of the level of physicality your body can handle. This can help in avoiding minor, to permanent injury. Trust us, your body will thank you.

Another solid preparation tip is to stretch. Warming up your joints and limbs prior to getting active during the day can go a long way towards keeping you primed. Steer clear of longer stretches before getting active, though. This can sometimes do more damage than it does good. 

How Often Should I Walk?

It is recommended that you get at least thirty minutes of exercise per day. Short on time? That’s no problem. You can segment the time throughout the day to ensure it’s not too much of a strain. Even a few steps around the house can translate into big wins at FitnessBank. If you do have the time, a nice walk outdoors is good for a number of things. Vitamin D from the sun, increased energy from staying active; the list of perks is never ending. And now, you can do all that while getting big savings when it comes to your account.

More Fun Suggestions for Getting Your Steps In

Tired of making that same walk around the block? Try stepping past your typical area in exchange for some new scenery. Set a walking goal of searching some nearby parks/walking trails for a change of pace. Depending on your location, some trails may even have captivating views.

These visuals may motivate you to grab a few more steps, or at the very least give you a nice alternative location to revisit later. If there are any mountain trails nearby, that’s also a great alternative. Make sure to stay hydrated, pack sunscreen, and take any other necessary precautions for these environments.

Walk Right Into Savings with FitnessBank

Always remember to give yourself grace. It’s alright if you don’t make it to the park everyday. And with this easy to follow guide for crushing your walking goals, just giving it your best will be enough.
