participants work their way through different levels of stair-stepping,
from the equivalent of a mile (2,000 steps) to the equivalent of a
marathon (52,400 steps). As you reach each level, you can record your
session online or submit your log files to LIVE FOR LIFE to receive a
prize from the LIVE FOR LIFE store.No matter what the pace,
stair climbing is a great addition to your exercise plan. It doesn't
require any special equipment. You can do it just about anywhere. It's
free. And there's no need to worry about the weather.For more information, visit the Take The Stairs website.
