The aim of this study was to provide insight into the contribution of marching band to overall physical activity. A convenience sample was recruited from the Arizona State University Marching Band. Participants logged their physical activity and step counts for seven days. Complete data were returned by 49 participants. Repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) revealed that participants took significantly more steps per day on marching band days compared to days that did not involve marching band. These findings suggest that marching band can help to meet current physical activity recommendations when measured in steps-per-day using a pedometer.
