This morning, as I checked out from my hotel and made my way to the Syndey airport, my phone told me that I walked 1,526 steps over a distance of 1.04 km, expending a total of 60 kCal (kilocalorie).

I may not exercise much, but according to my phone I'm getting quite a good workout every time I travel on business.
