WALX speed guide:

Gentle stroll - Gear 1/2 - A nice pace that you can do for extended periods. 2-2.5mph (these generally are our Well Being walks)

Easy walk - Gear 2 -Slightly faster pace gained through technique. Expect Gear 2 at times throughout the walk. 2.5mph. (these are generally a crossover of our wellbeing and moderate walks)

Moderate walk - Gear 2/3 - Faster again using technique and with less recovery. 2.5mph-3mph+ (these are generally our Workout walks and longer Adventure walks)

Strenuous walk - Gear 3/4 – Adding more speed through technique and intensity, intervals, speedhyking.
