2013 Burn the Fat Million Step Challenge Hall of Fame

2013 Burn the Fat Million Step Challenge Hall of Fame

By Tom Venuto & The Burn The Fat Team
Printer-Friendly Format

At the beginning of the summer of 2013, I announced a new health and fitness challenge to add an extra level of motivation and excitement to the already challenging Burn the Fat Summer Body Transformation Contest...

This challenge was not about body fat percentage, pounds burned off or before and after photos. This challenge was completely different.

On the launch date of the challenge, I explained the mission:

"I, Tom Venuto, challenge you to walk, hike, jog, "slog," run, step, climb or otherwise get thyself off thy backside and log ONE MILLION (1,000,000) steps (or equivalent activity) during the summer challenge of 2013."

The reason for the challenge?

It was a great motivator, for starters. But more than being motivating, 10,000 steps a day is a benchmark where health and fitness authorities say a person is "very active." The average American takes only 5000 to 6000 steps a day.

Inactivity, and especially prolonged sitting, is so harmful to your health, that research by NASA has compared it to the effects that zero gravity has on astronauts - muscle shrinks and your body gets weaker and more susceptible to illness and premature death.

Our mission was to encourage as many men and women as possible to get more active, to burn more fat, to get healthier and to make being more active a habit.

It's not difficult to log 10,000 steps in one day. But it's a a challenge to take 10,000 steps every day for an entire summer - an average of 10,204 steps in 98 days.

New Hall of Fame inductees: Congratulations for "stepping up" to this monumental mission!

Below is a list of every Inner Circle member who achieved that incredible feat - one million steps in 98 days. To our surprise, many participants aimed even higher than 1 million steps, and a small handful - to our astonishment - walked 2 million or even 3 million steps!

The first person to be immortalized in our inaugural 1 million step hall of fame was Deborah Libertore, who reached the benchmark goal of 1,000,000 steps by mid-summer! She then kept going and smashed it, ultimately crossing the 3 million step mark by the end of the 98 days, along with Johnny Stent and Marc Chabot.

Be sure to take a well-deserved break, put your feet up and savor the achievement... The next challenge is coming soon... and with a new twist!

Ranking order is based on number of steps completed.
