26 nursing home residents and 28 similarly aged community dwelling older adults Self-selected walking at slow, normal, fast paces Pedometers underestimated actual steps taken in dependent older adults by 74% (slow) to 46% (fast). The percent error for the independent older adult sample ranged from 25% (slow) to 7% (fast). Cyarto, Myers, and Tudor-Locke Medicine and Science in Sport and Exercise, 2004 Pedometer vs. dual-mode CSA Motor vehicle travel on paved roads total distance traveled was 32.6 km or 20.4 miles

Any steps detected during motor vehicle travel were considered error the CSA detected approximately 17-fold more erroneous steps than the pedometer approximately 250 vs 15 steps for the total distance traveled, P < .05 Le Masurier and Tudor-Locke MSSE 2003 Can we use pedometers with obese people? 16 normal weight, 8 overweight, 11 obese Self-selected walking at slow, normal, fast paces Percent error (NS) normal

3,600 steps in 30 minutes of selfpaced moderate intensity walking (ICC=.96) No difference in steps taken based on gender Tudor-Locke et al., in progress The latest. Dose Response to Exercise in Women (DREW) 8kcal/kg/week = 100% of public health recommendations Free-living activity 4600 steps/day 5500 steps/session, 3 days/week

Jordan et al., Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 2005 Modeling change Baseline = 5000 steps/day 30 minute walk, 3 days/week = 6200 steps/day (60 min/3 days =7500/steps/day) 30 minute walk, 5 days/week = 7100 steps/day (60min/5days = 9200 steps/day) 30 minute walk, 7 days/week = 8000 steps/day (60 min/7days =11000 steps/day) Is a Universal 10,000 Steps/day Sustainable?

Pedometer-based Interventions Yamanouchi et al. (1995) RCT First to look at 10,000 step/day goal Dieting patients (living in hospital) with type 2 diabetes took 19,200 steps/day and lost 17lbs over 6-8 weeks compared to control group that averaged 4,000 steps/day and lost 9 lbs Seems Reasonable for Healthy Adults Assembled from published literature, healthy adults take between 7,000-13,000 steps/day (Tudor-Locke and Myers, 2001) 73% of participants who reported 30 minutes of moderate activity

also achieved 10,000 steps (Welk et al., 2000) However. Even with a prescribed walk, 38-50% of sedentary women reached 10,000 steps on any single day (Wilde et al., 2001) Only half of healthy older exercisers ever achieved 10,000 steps on any single day, despite the fact that they participated in exercise class or informal walking for exercise on most days of observation (Tudor-Locke et al., 2002) Further When all accumulated minutes are considered, guidelines can be achieved within as little as 8000 steps/day (TudorLocke et al., 2002)

Although individuals achieving >10,000 steps/day are more likely to achieve guidelines, that alone is not a guarantee of meeting them (Le Masurier et al., 2003) And. Iwane et al. (2000) described experiences implementing a 10,000 step/day program in a manufacturing work place 730 volunteered to participate out of 2474 workers (approximately 30%) 306 remained in program after 4 weeks (42% drop out) Only 83 remained after 12 weeks (89% drop out from beginning of program)

Remaining Concerns Too Low for Children 8-10 year olds in the U.K. take 12,000-16,000 steps/day (Rowlands et al., 1999) 6-12 year olds in the U.S. take 11,000-13,000 steps/day (Vincent et al., 2002) 14-16 years olds in the U.S. take 11,000-12,000 steps/day (Wilde, 2002) BMI-referenced cutpoints

International sample (USA, Sweden, Australia) 995 girls, 959 boys, 6-12 years Criterion referenced analysis approach 12,000 steps/day for girls 15,000 steps/day for boys Tudor-Locke et al., Preventive Medicine, 2004 Too High for Sedentary Individuals Assembled from published literature: 3,500-5,500 steps/day for individuals living with disabilities and chronic illnesses (Tudor-Locke and Myers, 2001) Proposed sedentary lifestyle index is <5,000 steps/day (Tudor-Locke et al., 2001)

Achieving 10,000 steps/day requires a 2-3 fold increase in daily activity What are We Left With? Preliminary guidelines for adults >12,500 steps/day >10,000 steps/day 7,500-9,999 steps/day 5,000-7,499 steps/day <5,000 steps/day highly active active somewhat active low active sedentary Tudor-Locke & Bassett, Jr., Sports Medicine,
