Walking Speed Beats Step-Count, According to Science. by Jodi Helmer. December 14, 2019. No Comments. When it comes to improved health, your walking speed might be more important than the total duration of your workout. New research shows following an interval walking program that fluctuates between fast and slow speeds for up to 50 minutes per week is more beneficial for physical fitness than walking.

Higher speeds could help burn more energy, stressing the body and triggering the need to sleep as part of the recovery process. Another study of dog owners found those who walked up to 9,961 steps per day (or roughly 4.16 miles) slept an average of 53 minutes longer than those who walked just 5,247 steps. Inspired by a theory of embodied music cognition, we investigate whether music can entrain the speed of beat synchronized walking. If human walking is in synchrony with the beat and all musical stimuli have the same duration and the same tempo, then differences in walking speed can only be the result of music-induced differences in stride length, thus reflecting the vigor or physical strength.

As you increase your speed, you also tend to increase your stride length. According to Science Trends, runners can cover a mile in 1,400 steps or less. The faster you go, the longer your stride tends to be as you’re bouncing from one foot to the next. Walking is defined as a movement where one foot is on the ground at all times. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, and a study published in The Lancet concluded a person that exercises five times per week paid $2,500 less in annual health care expenses related to heart disease than someone who did not walk or otherwise move for 30 minutes per day five times per week!

The incidence of walking independence in the low-score group was 21 of 61 (34.4%) patients with impaired cognitive function. According to the logistic regression analysis, the main factor associated with walking independence in the low-score group was the 10-m walking speed (odds ratio, 1.113; 95% confidence interval, 1.045–1.186) (Table 2).With regard to the compatibility of the. Walking speed is a critical indicator of your health. Your walking speed is a more accurate predictor of your life expectancy than just age or gender. Walking speed also predicts a complex battery of other health indicators including cognitive function, mental and physical well-being.

More than any other vital sign, walking speed can predict. The average walking speed of an adult is 3 to 4 miles per hour, but that all depends on age, fitness level, terrain, and other factors. Starting a walking routine can be beneficial for your health. If you walk a mile in 15 minutes, divide 60 by 15 to get a walking speed of 4 mph.

Alternately, divide the number of minutes you walked 1/2 mile by 30. Tips. Choose a pace you feel you can maintain for 30 minutes or more without stopping. Walking is one of the most rewarding lifelong activities you can choose.

While it may not be a huge calorie burner — the average person burns about 100 calories or so per mile — adding more mileage to your day can make a big difference in weight control.According to Harvard Health Watch, one study found the average person gains about 2.2 pounds a year during middle age.

Crutch users required 80 percent more energy than controls when walking very slowly, but used only 8 percent more energy than controls at the fastest speed, perhaps because of greater ease in maintaining body balance and walking rhythm.

Walking speed was measured before and after training; those subjects with initial slower speed increased their speed in 85 percent of cases, whereas those with initial fast speed showed an increase in only 9 percent of cases [Ditunno and Scivoletto, 2009].

Many consumer-grade pedometers significantly undercount steps at walking speeds slower than 0.9 meters per second (about 2 miles per hour), which is particularly problematic for healthy older adults who walk at these speeds (Martin et al., 2012).

  • Love Gina! Such a great quick workout to get your heart pumping, blood flowing, and mental and spiritual rejuvenation! Fit and fun!!!

  • Ever since my hip arthritis diagnosis (so that’s why it hurt!) this has become my go-to workout. Great to get my steps in without increasing my pain! Any chance I can talk you into choreographing some Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff or Slightly Stoopid?

  • This is one of my favorite videos! The music is so great and the moves are perfect for a nice quick workout after a long day at work! Even when I can’t bring myself to do anything else I can convince myself to put this one on and groove it out.

  • I just can’t get over this workout. I’ve been doing this every single day. Thank you so much for this beautiful workout! Love from India! ❤️❤️

  • Hi I found your site about a week ago. What a great time I’m having doing all your work outs. It’s so noce to find some thing that is not too high impack on my older knees ]. Thank you keep them coming please. From cloudy North Wales UK

  • You are awesome Gina! I am an old soul too! So glad you are too! This makes it a
    lot easier to keep up with, especially when there is health issues. So grateful to you!

  • I do all my moves from a chair because I can’t stand right now and this felt amazing. Especially, when it feels like you really speaking words of positivity into US! Thank you so much! All the best from New York City!

  • You should try to do research on Samsung health app If you haven’t. I think It’ll make a huge difference compared to the iPhone. I’ve had both android & iOS phones.

  • Thank you, I had soooo much fun.. I am overweight but working on it and your workouts are sooo good for me. I don’t enjoy walking outdoors… I live in a river town and the hills are steep and I am not down for that..not yet anyway:) LOL

  • This was so fun! FTR I logged 1600 steps and 0.8 miles. The music was great, I was looking for something different than typical gym-type house music. Love your personality. Don’t stop singing!

  • Loved this! I woke up and just wasn’t feeling like I wanted to do the workout I planned, was feeling a bit low, but I wanted to do something this was perfect, happy, great music. Feeling much more positive now. Thanks x

  • Its not almost impossible cause the title of the video is wrong. They even explain it in the same, so you actually can run 100 meters in 9 seconds, as long as you have an initial acceleration. The title should be “Why It’s Almost Impossible to Run 100-Meter DASH In 9 Seconds” or “”Why It’s Almost Impossible to Run THE 100 Meters In 9 Seconds” When THE 100 METERS make reference to the 100 Meters Dash.

  • Ready for a super soul session Sunday! I was going to do your new workout but I feel awful. I still want to move and I love the music and choreography for this— just what I need!:)

  • what an at random walkabout this was,..new steps every 10 seconds.. no warnings..no time to figure out the moves..it was chaos..I had to make my own choreography to finish this workout.. good thing the music was fun….

  • Its funny how these US based training labs have all these high tech equipment to help their athletes run faster, yet struggle to compete with the Jamaican athletes who dont have access to these technologies.

  • So glad I found you! Staying home due to current shelter in place and tired of my old routines. You had me smiling, laughing out loud and singing along with a renewed sense of energy! Thank you Gina and please keep the videos coming������! Just purchased some workouts to stream and would love to purchase a black tank top once back in stock. You are a true blessing Gina! Hugs from California!

  • I am trying to get my 30,000 badge for 30,000 steps of the day, and I only had 2,500 to go and thank you you got me 2,000 of them and 500 to go.. x ��

  • I think that this is my favourite video so far! So much fun just dancing and sweating to the latin beats. Gina, your taste in music is spot on as usual.

  • Some routines are too fast for me to keep up with, as I’m old enough to be your mother. This one was just right. Your pink outfit looks pretty on you!

They’re my fav dance tracks & would love your moves to dance to them�� thanks again, you’re awesome!

  • Exactly what I needed this morning to get going. The weather is a little cold for me to walk outdoors and this definitely got me sweating!! I’ll be checking out your other videos for sure and I’ll save this one to do daily.

  • It was great! Thank you, it is the 3rd video or the 4th, and I love them. I love your choice of music, I love your philosophy that moving is important not the moves, so you make them simple. I need that I am rahter clumsy. Thank you.

  • Love the music. Love your energy it is very genuine. Love that you are fit but not the rail thin that’s so hard for most of us to get to. Love that I swear and feel good and accomplished at the end. A perfect add into my daily workouts.

  • I love this vid so much. I’ve started putting it at the end of my main workouts as a cool down as i like to wind down properly after an intense workout. It’s so nice to just move around in a relaxing way for a while and this is perfect for it xx

  • That was another fab workout!!! Super fun and I especially loved the second to last song. A workout that does not feel like a workout, making me feel happy and energetic. Exactly what I needed today as I don’t have too much energy to work out. Now I am feeling pumped!

  • I love your videos I used to be someone who worked our 5-6 days a week but because of financial issues I had to go get an evening job so now I have to rush to get everything done and dinner cooked and be at work by 2:30pm and then I don’t get home till passed 10pm and I have 3 kids so there’s a lot of things I have to get done in my mornings.. and your videos have become my weekend workouts I absolutely love them I’ll do 2 of the 20 min ones or a 30 min one on the weekends that’s my workout. Not working out as hard as I did before but I don’t have the time and my job is also very physical so I get about 15 thousands steps in at work. So keep up with the videos they’re great.

  • Ive been doing your workouts every afternoon to get some extra steps in during the shut in and they are so much fun. The time just flies. Thank you for such great, fun workouts!

  • I couldn’t stop smiling throughout this workout! So much fun! I can only hope my neighbours ( #apartmentliving) enjoyed it as much as I did! ��

  • Loved this! Your sweet voice, the moves, the music and your colorful clothes all just brightened my day, thank you! I’m an dance aerobic teacher from the 80’s, (now 62 years old), you are spot on! Stay well, and yes all the prayers ��. Thank you.��

  • Just found your channel and I’m really enjoying your workouts. I’m a “senior” who loves to dance and started with Dance that Walk. I found this video today and loved, loved, loved the music. Thanks so much!

  • I found your videos a week ago and I’m writing to tell you, that after trying hundreds of routines and workouts, yours are incredible addictive. I never ever enjoy exercising so very much!!! Thanks soooooo much ❤️…. You have a new fan, a new subscriber and a new follower….can’t understand you don’t have millions of subscribers!! Please do more workouts dancing, they are AMAZING…and even the music you chose is the best to make you get into the routine full of good energy!! Thanks, thanks and thanks…it is all I can say…. Oh no, one more thing, make them longer PLEASE!!! ����❤️

  • This was so much fun as all your workouts are! You can go ahead and sing Gina…I was singing right
    along with you. Can’t help it.

  • Thank you for all the work you put into your videos. I am a 71 year old woman and because of YOU I have started to exercise with you daily. I love your upbeat personality and your beautiful dance workouts. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • Gina absolutely loved this! ���� Thank you for taking walking workouts to the next level ���� so many of the moves reminded me of step class and the music gets you moving and feeling energetic �� plus your beautiful smile and personality make your workouts complete! ��

    PSdoes Australia get cold in winter?? I can’t imagine it gets cold like NY ������‍♀️����‍♀️��

  • Oh my goodness!!! Love, love, these 2000 Latin steps!! I am 58 years old and I made it thru the whole workout!!! Getting back to working out, after being down for over 6 months!!! Thank you so much, I just subscribed to your channel, keep these workouts coming!!!! More…More…maybe a 3000 step is next?

  • I’m so happy I came across your vids on youtube! You bring such a spark and joy to working out! I’m very grateful! God bless you <3

  • I really like this workout! i’m 61 and I made it through this work. Thanks so much for making your workouts fun, challenging and most important do able for nearly every age and fitness level.

  • My mom wanted a fun workout to do around Christmas time, so I showed her your holiday walking workout videos (which I love!) and she loved as well! After Christmas she went back to her usual workout routine, but it wasn’t until 2 weeks ago that she requested I show her more videos “of that pretty Australian girl who wears the cute outfits and plays good music” �� Now instead of doing your videos alone a couple of times a week, I do them everyday with my mom on her lunch break as she’s been working from home due to the virus. These videos truly lift our spirits and are so motivating! It’s also super fun that I can bond over your videos with my mom now (plus we get some extra steps in the process!) Thanks so much Gina B! ps mom’s been working on the Australian accent…she’s been inspired ��

  • Your workouts are high energy but completely doable for anyone. I have arthritis in my hip that forces me to modify some exercises and moves, but I’m totally fine doing your workouts. I just found you yesterday, but already I’m hooked. Goal is 3/day: 1 after every meal. They’re short, fun and my heart rate is up! Thank you!

  • I also enjoy and look forward to working out with you in the morning…This is one of my favorite workouts. I would prefer to it as make over with only instrumental music instead of music with vocals. To me the vocals distract from your instruction…I can tell a difference when the segments are instrumental…just saying…

  • I’m a fit 67 year old and been doing aerobics and dancing since in my 20’s. Now that I’m older I don’t like to do any high impact and my dancing is line dancing which I do 2-3 times a week. I have a whole library of dvd workouts but you are by far the most enjoyable! The music is great. Love all the different genres and decades as obviously I’ve lived through most of them! I’ve never looked forward to my workouts so much. ps Found you by accident when doing some Leslie Sansone walking workouts…..Hope you never give this up beautiful girl. xxoo

  • I have been doing your exercise videos for months now and I love them! And every time I hear Latin songs, especially from my Island, Puerto Rico, I feel so proud those tunes are played and danced so many miles away. Calma… yeah! Thanks for your motivation and enthusiasm, they are contagious.

  • Where on earth have you been hiding!?! This was probably one of the most fun lockdown workouts in the comfort of my own lounge. It is so cold outside. Blessings from not so sunny London. Stay safe. #WeWillBeatCoronavirus

  • This was so fun! I told myself I was going to just do this workout (I have back issues I’m constantly fighting) I ended up doing this workout twice in a row! The music was so good and your energy is always amazing!!!

  • what he says at 7:24 cant be correct as that suggests that the fastest starters (Christian coleman) must have the fastest top speed (usain bolt)

  • According to Britney Spears she ran the 100 Meter Dash in 5 seconds. Once acclimatized to 5 seconds she could easily make 6 or 7 and Britney is not a liar.

  • Has anyone noticed that in Usain’s fastest races ever, he celebrates DURING the end of the race, meaning if he didn’t celebrate during the race, he could go even faster

  • One of the things about being a host that you can’t control is your voice. I really like this guys voice it’s smooth, not monotonous, and not pitchy either it’s perfectly in the middle

  • “Why it’s almost impossible to run 100 meters in 9 seconds”

    Fastest man in the world has a child with Fastest woman in the world

    “Why it’s almost impossible to run 100 meters in 8 seconds”

  • Hi. While we are all in lock down I have found your work outs and think they are great. Thank you so much for helping me get back on track. ��

  • Love your workouts. Your music choices really keep me going. I love listening to the incentives that you give us. Keep up the great work. I am 65 and haven’t had a problem keeping up once I finally remember the steps. Yes, I am smiling back at you.

  • omg i love this one so much!!! Latin music love love!!Gina you motivate me so much to workout once i have finished work…its never boring,…. thank you!!!!! Also i wish i loved in sydney to attend yr classes.X

  • Ok, i know thats a bit boring but am not an sprinter or something soo i ve never tryed 100 meter dash. But to be clear ive run 78 feet or 26 yards in 4.80 sec or 11.700 mph. Was that fast?? ������

  • A 7.22 ft tall man with the right body proportions, decent genetics and the same weight/power ratio as Usain Bolt (or one of the best sprinters).
    Pretty sure he can smash that record with a 9.3 seconds

  • Love your workouts Lucy..easy to follow and love your positive quotes in this one. Great job at keeping the healthy vibes flowing!��

  • Gina, you are truly amazing. So far I have lost 3st by just doing your videos and watching what I eat. I love the fact that the videos you do are fun and make me smile. The music in this one was amazing and I really got groovy with it! Please continue doing the great job you are doing. You are keeping me going through Lockdown in the UK. Thank you so much and God bless you and your family, including your mum Mila & your friend Sarah from your workout DVD’s hope they are keeping safe too. Xxx

  • I love this.I’ll be doing this along with the 7 DAY CHALLENGE,which I started 2 weeks ago.I got positive results with the 7 DAY CHALLENGE,so I can’t wait to add this one to the mix.Thanks so much!!

  • Not the type to write comments like this, but I’ve been watching Lucy’s videos and today marks the 100th day of me following along with a variety of her 7-min workouts and ab exercises in my own little makeshift routine. I’ve never been great at motivating myself but Lucy’s videos make working out SO MUCH easier and vastly less intimidating. Thanks, Lucy, I wouldn’t have made it here without you and your simple-yet-effective videos. Here’s to 100 more days of working out!

  • Lucy I just have one question u have posted many exercise videos I’m rather confused as to follow what video should I do all or should I just stick to one or 2 videos pls give me an immediate and positive reply its because I love ur exercises a lot with ur positive words psl give me a reply soon

  • Hi Lucy, you’re doing a real good job with this video! People can do too at the office during lunch break as a real good refresher and energizer! Thanks a lot! ♡

  • Thank you for sharing your work videos. You are so encouraging in your words regarding be yourself and not try to be like anyone.

  • This is one of my favorite workout a day after chemotherapy. It feels so good to exercise to these songs. Thank you for keeping me motivated.

  • Thank God I found some healthy tips and workouts without going into new age practices. Thank you Lucy for all your input����������

  • Hi Lucy. I have been carrying out some of your 7 minute workouts for 6 months and am so happy with the results. I have lost 24 pounds and 4 inches around my belly and chest… thank you so much. I would like to take the toning a step further though, do you have any exercises with resistance bands or gentle weights? Thanks again

  • Had two days where I was not feeling a workout. Got right back on track with prayer & listening to Lucy’s awesome advice. I NEVER listen to music with her workouts. Lucy is motivating rather listen to her!!!!

  • Thank you Lucy. I’m 31 weeks pregnant and I love these walk at home workouts. They help me to get my 20-30minutes walk first thing in the morning, then I have peace of mind even if i don’t get to go outdoors for a walk. Thank you, you are doing a great job and I’m here for it ��xx

  • Hello I just came across your work out. I might try this in the week. Am 10 stone and would love to try to get to 9 1/2 stone. I used to be 13 stone.

  • Love this Gina.b consider doing a Mandisa workout. I would literally do that 1000 times. (Mandisa is an artist ). Her music is very upbeat and has helped me through the darkest of times. She is also very inspiring with her weight loss journey and I love that she is real about who she is. Pls consider doing this @uptothebeatfit

  • Hi Lucy I am from India I just want to ask you that I do your exercises at 4to6pm is it OK. And if I do this so I can reduce my weight please suggest thank you

  • Do you have any videos for working out when you have a spinal condition and chronic pain? I love your videos and can do them sometimes but I’d love one that would help with my back. I do yoga but sometimes it’s a faff getting all my gear out, I like to use a bolster, blocks, pillows etc because I do hatha, a few sun salutations then some restorative yoga. This helps my pain like nothing else but I want to get fitter and loose weight. Any advice is appreciated ����

  • I went to work Friday and Sunday and Monday I walked all day then Monday night my legs were in pain a lot ������ but today my legs felt better ������ I love today’s video ��������
