Brisk walking is an exercise with moderate intensity and has more benefits than walking at an easy pace. Learn more about what is considered brisk walking and how to calculate your pace.
Brisk walking pace
One study defines a minimum speed for moderate-intensity as about 100 steps per minute for adults under 60 (about 3 mph). You probably have to walk at a pace of 4 mph (a 15-minute mile) or faster to get into the zone.
You can calculate your walking pace after measuring the time it takes to walk a mile or a kilometer. Pedometers and apps that use GPS or step cadence can also be used to show your walking speed.
