As the sun shines bright and the summer breeze beckons, it's the perfect time to embrace the June journey with Step App. Inspired by our recent Twitter poll where a large portion of our community responded that they are walkers, in this blog post we have decided to dive into the incredible physical and mental health benefits of walking and how Step App can serve as your ultimate companion, motivating you to take more steps and unlock a world of rewards.
Before we dive into the benefits of walking, let’s talk about walking with Step App and how to get started. These are some of the best GEAR options for you:
- Walker SNEAK. Using a Walker SNEAK you will be able to earn when you move at speeds between 1km/h and 6km/h. This SNEAK is perfect for our leisurely walker or our Steppers who want to do low-intensity movement.
- Hiker SNEAK. The hiker is for our power walkers, our walkers that almost seem like they're running, essentially who walk as if they are the main character. With this SNEAK you can earn when you move at speeds between 4km/h and 10km/h. It’s great for brisk walks.
- HEADSETs. This is another GEAR option that allows you to move and earn at any speed you are moving at. Learn more about them here.

Now, let’s get into the benefits of walking:
- You can boost your physical health: Walking is a simple yet effective way to boost your physical health. As we kickstart the summer, not only will walking improve cardiovascular fitness, but it also strengthens muscles and bones, and aids in weight management - perfect for helping your summer body goals. By tracking your steps, distance, and calories burned with Step App, you gain valuable insights into your physical activity levels. This information empowers you to set goals, challenge yourself, and make progress on your fitness journey. Learn about our stats tracking here.
- Enhance Mental Well-being: Walking isn't just good for your body; it's also a powerful tool for enhancing your mental well-being. Spending time outdoors, especially during the summer months, can reduce stress, alleviate anxiety and depression, and improve your overall mood.
- Soak Up the Summer Benefits: Walking outside during the sunny summer months gives you the added benefit of being able to soak up natural vitamin D from sunlight, which supports your immune system and helps maintain strong bones. Walking also boosts energy levels, making it easier to embrace the active and vibrant summer lifestyle.
- Incorporating Walking into Daily Routines: This is easier than you might think. Take short walks during your lunch breaks, opt to walk instead of driving for short distances, or explore local parks and nature trails in the evenings or weekends. Step App acts as your personal motivator, once you get started on the app our in-app tacking is designed to help you stay motivated by being able to keep track of your walking streaks and steps.
- Boosts Creativity and Enhances Cognitive Function: Walking has been shown to enhance creativity and cognitive function. Taking a stroll outdoors can stimulate your mind, clear your thoughts, and inspire fresh ideas. It provides a break from the daily routine, allowing your brain to relax and rejuvenate. Many great thinkers and creatives have found inspiration and clarity during their walks.
With each step you take, you unlock a world of health, wellness, and rewards. Walking during the summer not only boosts physical fitness but also revitalizes the mind, offering an unparalleled sense of well-being. By embracing the June journey with Step App, you'll discover a powerful tool to motivate and inspire you on your walking adventures.
