Some people get a workout just by going to work. Sometimes it's not even intended, it just comes along with the job.

When I was a maxi-flatbed truck driver I got some of the best workouts just by tarping and untarping my loads, especially in summer time.

Others get a great workout each day because their job requires them to walk.

Here are six of the step-liveliest jobs, according to a study commissioned by the American Council on Exercise:

  • Mail Carriers take 18,904 steps a day on the job.
  • Custodians take 12,991 steps a day on the job.
  • Restaurant servers take 10,087 steps a day on the job.
  • Nurses take 8,648 steps a day on the job.
  • Lawyers take 5,062 steps a day on the job.
  • Teachers take 4,726 steps a day on the job.
