Your Step Counter

Each team member in Walk with Me in the Berkshires will receive a free step counter to record your weekly step counts. All efforts have been made to obtain quality step counters. You do not need to use the step counter that we give you if you prefer using your own step counter or similar exercise recording tool. 

A special thank you in 2017 to Fallon Health, our step counter sponsor. Because of Fallon Health's generous sponsorship of Walk with Me in the Berkshires, we are able to provide all participants with a step counter. 

The step counters are easy to operate. After opening your step counter box, make sure you pull the plastic tab out of the battery slot, which will activate your unit. Also, please read the instructions to show you how to work your pedometer. 

Should your step counter become damaged during the program, or lost, the walker is responsible for replacing it. We have a very limited number and cannot replace those that are lost or damaged.

Follow the instructions contained in the step counter packaging, and make sure you wear it in the correct place (it should rest on the area of your hip where you can feel the hip bone point, on either the left or right side of your hip), otherwise it will not record your steps accurately. If the step counter fails during the program, first please try to replace the battery.

Efforts will be made to replace step counters that do not function properly from the start, but again, there is a very limited supply and replacements will be provided only as available.
