Get active start small! Beginners Walking Plan

BEGINNER SCHEDULE
Week 1 Start with a daily 15 minute walk at an easy pace
Walk five days the first week. You want to build a habit, so consistency is important. Spread out your rest days, such as making day 3 a rest day and day 6 a rest day

Weekly total goal: 60 – 75 minutes

Week 2 Add 5 minutes a day so you are walking 20 minutes, 5 days a week. Or you may wish to extend yourself more on some days, followed by a rest day.

Weekly total goal: 75 – 100 minutes

Week 3 Add 5 minutes a day so you are walking 25 minutes, 5 days a week.

Weekly total goal: 100 – 125 minutes

Week 4 Add 5 minutes a day to walk 30 minutes, 5 days a week.

Weekly total goal: 125 to 150 minutes
