UWALK Pedometers Available for Loan


Are you looking to increase your physical activity and walking, but not quite ready to commit to buying your own pedometer? The Chestermere Public Library and UWALK has the answer for you! UWALK Pedometers are now available to be signed out at the Library. Pedometers can be signed out for 3 weeks and can also be placed on hold through the catalogue at tracpac.ab.ca.
 
Sign up at Uwalk.ca to get started. You can log your activity on the website - your daily steps, plus flights of stairs climbed, and minutes of moderate and vigorous physical activity.
 
 You can use you own pedometer, or your Fitbit One, or the MOVES mobile app on Apple and Android devices.
 
UWALK was developed by the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta and funded by the Government of Alberta.
 
Be sure to also take a look at Chestermerewalks.ca for their programs and indoor walking. You can participate in both programs using the same pedometer.
