10,000-Step* Walking Maps of the U.S. and Resources at Your Fingertips

Walking is a nearly universal activity and has been shown to have the lowest dropout rate among people who struggle with being more active, according to the American Heart Association. There are countless ways for people to get active, but walking consistently throughout the day and aiming for 10,000 daily steps may help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, improve blood pressure, enhance mental well-being, and help maintain a healthy body weight.
