A pedometer measures the number of steps you take in a day and is a good measure of your activity level – both through incidental movement and planned exercise. 

Pedometers have many advantages as they:

- are very economical and easy to wear
- give you instant feedback on how active or inactive you've been
can be used by anyone of any age or fitness level
- will motivate you to be more active
- can become your very own a personal trainer

Although there are some very sophisticated models of pedometers available, all you need is one that measure steps with some degree of accuracy.
