We are a family that loves to be outdoors enjoying the weather, and since we live in Arizona that’s easy! Being outdoors and keeping moving is so important, and I want to be sure that my kids learn to love to be active while they’re young so they keep those habits as they grow. )I also want them to be outside and busy so they’ll get rid of some of that insane energy that they have!!) 😉
Generally if we buy sporting or fitness equipment it’s for the kids or my husband, but I decided it was high time I got something for myself. Sportline is a company we love, so I was thrilled to be able to try the Sportline 345DS Pedometer!
EB Sport Group (Sportline) created Move100 to encourage a healthier lifestyle. With nearly 50 million American adults recently classified as “inactive”, they felt it was time to do something. The Move 100 Challenge encourages everyone to be active for 100 minutes each day. Check out Move100.org for more information. This pedometer is equipped with MoveTrac Technology, counting the steps (up to 1 million), distance walked, and time you’ve been moving. It also keeps track of the calories you’ve burned!
This pedometer is about the size of a silver dollar. Setting it up was fast and easy; Set your weight, height and stride by simply pressing a few buttons and you’re ready to go.
As a busy mom I knew I moved a lot in a day. But until I received the Sportline Pedometer, I had no idea just how much. First off, I move so much that after wearing the pedometer for a while, it fell off and I had no clue. I’m pretty sure it was in the Walmart parking lot, and of course when I called nobody had turned it in. Honestly, I have no idea how it came off, because the clip is definitely secure. I was so bummed out (and upset that I wasn’t able to get pictures of my progress). After hearing about my issue, Sportline generously sent me another pedometer (yet another reason I love them- amazing customer service)!
So seriously, in a mere 7 minutes at home making a meal for the family I had walked over 1/4 mile and burned nearly 25 calories.
By the end of the day you can imagine how much those numbers increased. I didn’t get any pictures, however, because before bed Connor was on my lap and we were reading a book. He must have been sitting just right and sat on the reset button. To reset it has to be held down for quite a few seconds, but sitting on my lap reading books was definitely long enough. lol Ah well, it was all worth it. Just be sure to remove it when you know you’re done moving for the day, or if you plan to sit on the couch and read to your active toddler. 😉
(By the way, I had no issues with this one even getting loose enough to fall off, so that other issue was a total fluke. Phew!)
I love being able to see how much I move on a daily basis and being able to keep track and set goals. I’m also thrilled to be joining the Move 100 Challenge, and am glad I have this pedometer to help me with that.
This past Father’s Day I was able to give my husband the Duo 1060 Men’s watch from Sportline, as well as the Quick Adjust Resistance Band. He still wears the watch daily, and uses it for his weekly workouts too. We have nothing but good things to say about the Sportline products we’ve received, and know you’ll love them too!!
