Want to feel better, have more energy and boost your productivity at work and in life? Just exercise. And there is no easier exercise than walking. In recent years, the 10,000-steps-a-day regime has become epidemic in popular culture. And the World Health Organization has gradually adopted 10,000 steps as a daily activity recommendation.
As a matter of fact, this is not a new concept. The 10,000 steps idea is originated in Japan in the 1960s, where they were marketed under the name “manpo-kei,” translating to “10,000 steps meter”. The idea persisted and is now a common goal among health-conscious adults because, despite the number’s less than scientific origin, 10,000 steps burns enough calories to provide significant benefits to any adult.
Another reason why people use the 10,000 step rule of thumb due to health concerns. Generally speaking, 10K steps means you're exercising for at least an hour per day. Studies have shown that with this amount of movement, you are burning fat, reducing your blood pressure and elevating your mood levels — all of which can lead to a longer, healthier lifespan.

Basically, the average calories per adult burn in 10,000 steps range from 400 to 600 calories. However, this isn’t written in stone because it depends on factors such as your pace, weight, body fat percentage, and age. The fitness tracker is a practical device that helps you keep track your steps and the calories you’ve burned accordingly.
