  • start at around level 2 for 5 minutes, then go up to level 3 for 10 min and back down to 2 for 15min. there's your 30 for your day. 4 is a power walk and 5 is a light jog

  • i started out by simply walking for 5, then "speed walking" for 20, then back to a walk for 5...

  • I usually just start off slow then go faster and faster and then slow again and back and forth

  • Level 2 until you feel comfortable, and then try level 3 and so on.

  • I am not sure, I usually just get on and start at whatever pace feels OK to me and work my way up.
