NASPE, the American Heart Association, and other experts agree that getting at least 30 minutes of MVPA (60 minutes for children) in bouts of 10 or more minutes is one of the cornerstones of a healthy life. The FITstep™ is one of the first pedometers that lets users accurately measure how much MVPA they get each day. The new FITstep™ Pro instantly uploads data for simple, fast, and customizable class tracking. Both models feature a large LCD display, delayed reset button, sleep mode (when not in use), alligator-style clip, and long-lasting battery.
Users calculate how many steps per minute it takes to sustain an elevated heart rate, entering that steps-per-minute (SPM) threshold into the pedometer (between 80 and 150 SPM). When the user exceeds that threshold, the pedometer times and records it as a bout of MVPA and displays a graph showing the intensity and duration. Use to monitor student achievement within the Active & Healthy Schools™ Program or other school wellness program.
Pedometer features an oversize LCD display, delayed reset button, sleep mode, alligator-style clip, and a long-life replaceable battery.Packs include 15, 30, or 100 Screamin' Orange® pedometers, security straps, and storage cases.
