Average american walks an median of 5000-7000 actions per day. Let's take it 6000 as the center point:

Each step is an typical of 2.5 feet, I like metric better, so about 0.75 meters, back this typical varies in between men and women, and by height.

So the typical american walks around 4km a day.

In a life time (between 20-60 yo), throughout max activity, this is 4km x (365* 20 40) job = 29,200 58400 km .. That's one and also a fifty percent times the method around the planet near the equator. Just throughout the most energetic years.

If us assume that they walk third of the for the remainder of your 80 years median lives (which is a little bit of a stretch, however bear through me), climate they walk approximately the earth twice during their lives.

That's something come let sink in!

Edit: looks favor a human lives 40 years in between the age of 20 and 60! who would've though? wherein did my years go?

Found that Americans take in between 5k and also 7k procedures a day. The is typical 6k procedures a day. Assuming girlfriend don't go your very first year and also that'll you desire walk as lot your 7 last year's so just 4k steps THE last 7 years and also none the first year.

365,25 days/year.

Average expectancy in the united state is 78,69 years. Therefore 78,69-1=77,69

70,69 that those years you'll take it 6k procedures a day. + 7 year you'll take 3k steps.

154917135+7670250=162587385 procedures in a lifetime.

One action is 0,762 meters.

162587385*0,762=123891587 meters=123892 km=12389 (real) miles.

Circumference the the planet is 40075 km. 123892/40075=3,092

So girlfriend walk around 3 laps roughly the world.
