Depending on whose research you go by, the average American walks somewhere between 5,000 and 7,000 steps per day. This falls well short of the 10,000 steps — or, roughly five miles — that most health experts recommend.
And it's getting worse. One of the biggest new trends is the Hyperwalk scooter, a sort of Segway Lite that pretty much eliminates the need for having to walk at all. Unlike Paul Blart's transportation device of choice, though, the Hyperwalk is super trendy, being snatched up in large quantities by every hip young YouTube and Vine “star.”
Yeah, we Americans love other people or devices doing work for us. We don't even like making our own plans anymore, increasingly opting to rely on lists like the one below to tell us where we're going on any given night.
I guess you could call us enablers, then. It's all good. We've been called much worse.
