  • If you’ve never walked for exercise: Follow the beginner walking plan.
  • If you walk occasionally: Follow the intermediate plan.
  • If you walk regularly: Follow the advanced plan.

Stick with your walking plans for 12 weeks. That’s how long it takes to make your new walking program a habit. At that point, step up to the next fitness level. After that, step up at 12-week intervals. As always, it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor or physical therapist before you start a new fitness regimen.

Happy walking!
