How to Start a Walking Program

Yes, you really can get in shape just by walking.

While just going for a walk whenever you feel like it is still good for you, if you want to make the most of the steps you’re taking, it’s recommended you establish a more concrete schedule. But rest easy: Because walking is something you probably do every day anyway, getting started can be as simple as deciding when, where and for how long.

Walking briskly for 30 minutes, five times a week is a good place to start, according to the Mayo Clinic. And aim for at least 100 to 130 steps per minute, according to a January 2019 study from International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity. You’ll know that you’re keeping the right pace if you’re breathing hard but are still able to carry on a conversation.
