Want to get more active and fit? Use an activity tracker or pedometer. You can buy activity trackers online and at most fitness and sporting goods stores. Once you have your activity tracker, set a goal, such as increasing your number of steps a day to reach a goal of 10,000 steps each day. The simple process of recording your steps and tracking your progress may help you increase your physical activity.
