-FLN and Fitness Magazine present 25 Ways to Start Getting Fit Today. Walk This Way: Aim for a walking speed that's about 75% of your max effort, meaning you can speak, but only in choppy sentences. Depending on your fitness level, that may be a very brisk four and a half miles an hour, which burns about 400 calories an hour. To get the best cardio benefits, don't let your speed dip below three miles per hour. Stay fit with new tips every weekend during FLN's biggest Biggest Loser Summer Ever!
