When you start any project, especially a walking routine, you need to measure your progress in order to quantify your health improvement. Walk for enjoyment, of course, but do take a few extra steps to ensure that you are able to measure an improvement in your physical health.

How to Track Your Senior Walking Fitness Progress

While you can keep track of your walking time by manually writing down the minutes walked in a journal, it’s a difficult way to track your walking fitness plan if you exercise throughout the day. Instead, use technology to track steps walked instead of time spent exercising. There are several different ways to track steps walked:

 Senior Living Technology – Use These to Measure Your Progress

Accelerometers to track Senior Walking Heath

An accelerometer differs from a pedometer in that it measures a mechanical motion (walking) against a frame of reference and converts it into an electronic signal outputted as steps taken, among the other data collected, such as calories burned and distance walked; one of the leaders in this wearable technology is FitBit. Their products can also synch up with an app loaded on your computer, so you have an online journal of your activity.

Pedometers to track Senior Walking Health

Pedometers differ from accelerometers in the way they measure steps. They count the number of strides taken over time, meaning you have to input the length of your stride in order for them to accurately measure the number of steps taken. While not as accurate as an accelerometer, they are less expensive and you usually have to manually track your progress.

Online journals to track Senior Walking Health

Applications and programs to track your walking fitness plan progress comes in both free and paid versions. One free program from the website Spark People makes it easy to track nutrition, fitness, and weight among numerous other things. For a paid program, try Fitness Journal. For $3.95 per month, you can track the same information, plus a lot more, including when your walking shoes need replacing. It also allows you to journal your progress and creates various charts and graphs making it easy to see your progress. For a whole list of online tracking options, search

Senior Health Benefits of Walking

Aside from extending your life, walking has a host of other benefits that include increased creativity and boosting overall brain health. The Mayo Clinic reported that walking on the regular can also prevent things like heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. In addition, it strengthens muscles and bones and improves your mood, balance, and coordination.
