Q:

# How many miles does the average person walk per day?

A:

The average person walks approximately 3,000 to 4,000 steps per day, which equates to around 2 miles per day. In order to get the proper amount of exercise, at least 10,000 steps per day, or around 5 miles, are needed.

To incorporate 10,000 steps into a daily routine, walkers should start by wearing pedometers to measure daily steps. They can potentially add steps by parking further from the door or further out in the parking lot. An individual can also walk to the bus or to work instead of driving or take the dog for a walk around the neighborhood each night. An extra 1,000 steps is the equivalent of a brisk 10-minute walk.
