## How long do I have to walk in a day to reach the amount of 10,000 steps using a treadmill?

I’m trying to figure out how many minutes I need to walk in one day on a treadmill to reach 10,000 steps. I live in Yokohama Japan (military), and I love to walk. The people here tell me that they take 10,000 steps each day, but they could not break it down in how many minutes it would take to do 10,000 steps on a treadmill.

about 2000 steps is a mile.
so 10,000 steps would be 5 miles.
the average human walking speed is 3 miles per hour, so you would need to be on a treadmill for 1 hour, 40 minutes to walk 10,000 steps. (assuming you never go faster than 3 mph)

count how many you walk in a minute. If you walk 100 in a minute, then your gonna need to walk 100 minutes to get to 10,000 steps. I would probably say about 2 – 3 hrs.
