Have you ever wondered how many steps a two-time Olympian, AND Boston Marathon winner takes in a day? I have.
Thanks to FitnessBank partnering with Des Linden, I can actually find this out.
By joining the FitnessBank Des Linden Spring Step challenge, you not only getting to step along with Des, but have many opportunities to win great prizes, including Brooks running shoes, and free race entries for a year, etc.
You do not need a FitnessBank Bank account to participate to use the Step counter or participate in the challenges. The group on the FitnessBank app is called Des’ Running Group.
I’m a bit of stats freak and track daily steps with my Garmin watch. I was happy to find out that my Garmin account is automatically synced with my FitnessBank account. This means all I need to do is pull up the app and see how I’m doing against the competition!
What a crazy time we’re living in! The gyms are closed, fitness classes are canceled, and cabin fever is rearing its ugly head. A lot of people are looking for alternative ways to keep fit. Walking and running (while practicing social distancing) are some of the activities people are exploring more, and counting steps is a great way to stay motivated.
The actual challenge runs until the end of May, so jump right in now for a chance to win. The FitnessBank step is free, and can be downloaded from the Android and Apple stores.
