Today I am spilling the beans about how I rock over 100k steps each week- and you are NOT going to believe it! It is the ultimate fitbit cheat guide! I added a couple affiliate links to this post to make it EVEN easier! 😉
Welcome fitbit friends! I am SOO glad you are here! And you're looking for some ideas on how to finally CRUSH your step goal and dominate your fitbit challenges.
I know how you're feeling, the struggle is real! Each day, you put on the old fitbit, and get on with your day. You FEEL busy. You MUST have met your step goal, right?
But still, some days you crawl into bed and you feel the sting. No step goal for you! Or maybe you hit your goal, but your marathon training friend ALWAYS beats you.
GAH! Foiled again!
The same thing used to happen to me every week, I know how you feel!
Now, every week I ROCK my Fitbit challenges. Well, today the cat is out of the bag because I have totally found ways to sneak in extra steps and fool my fitbit. And I'm ready to share!
So if you are ready to sky rocket your step count with as little effort possible, you are in the right place!
NOTE: These have already been tested using a Fitbit Flex, Charge HR and Surge, as well as the clip models. I have not tested it with the all new Alta or Blaze yet, but it should be the same for all.
Ready? Let's go!

The simplest FitBit cheat, and most people can do this, is to put your fitbit in a sock, then wrap it in a small towel, and but that in the other sock, and tape it up and drop it in the dryer in “no heat” mode, for about 40 minutes and you will rack up just over 10K in steps. Not that I ever done that… more than twice.
