Your fitness goals will determine how many steps you do a day.
You don’t need to do 10,000 steps a day if you are a fitness newbie or recovering from an injury.
Equally, you might need to or want to do more if you are trying to lose weight quickly.
According to Fitbit, doing an extra 10,000 steps each day typically burns about 2000 to 3500 extra calories each week.
If you do an extra 10,000 steps you would lose about a pound a week.
If you want to maintain your weight, just one set of 10,000 steps a day will keep you steady.
