LA SALLE COUNTY - Every step does count. Studies show that using activity trackers gives people an accurate count for steps, heart rate, and sleep. They are also fun and get people off the couch and moving - a wearable piece of accountability.
With built-in reminders to get up and moving, activity trackers serve as a launching point for better health. Learn about different types of activity trackers, take a talk test, and set goals for yourself with University of Illinois Extension Nutrition and Wellness Educator, Susan Glassman. She will present research-based information on the benefits of using activity trackers for a healthy lifestyle. Get tips to get the most out of your activity tracker and join the Walking Club Challenge.
