Enter the total brisk walking time (min) and the body weight (lbs) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Brisk Walking Calories. 

Brisk Walking Calories Formula

BWC = BWT / 60 * 300 * BW/150

Variables:

  • BWC is the Brisk Walking Calories (calories)
  • BWT is the total brisk walking time (min)
  • BW is the body weight (lbs)

To calculate Brisk Walking Calories, divide the brisk walking time by 60, multiply by 300, then multiply by your body weight over 150.

How to Calculate Brisk Walking Calories?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Brisk Walking Calories.


  1. First, determine the total brisk walking time (min). 
  2. Next, determine the body weight (lbs). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = BWC = BWT / 60 * 300 * BW/150.
  4. Finally, calculate the Brisk Walking Calories.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Frequently Asked Questions

What factors can affect the number of calories burned while brisk walking?

The number of calories burned during brisk walking can be affected by several factors including the walker’s body weight, walking speed, walking terrain (e.g., uphill, flat ground), and metabolism rate. Environmental conditions, such as temperature and wind, can also play a role.

Is brisk walking a good way to lose weight?

Yes, brisk walking is an effective low-impact exercise for burning calories and can contribute to weight loss, especially when combined with a healthy diet. Consistency and duration of the walking sessions are key factors for seeing weight loss results.

How does brisk walking compare to jogging in terms of calorie burn?

Generally, jogging burns more calories than brisk walking because it requires more effort and engages more muscles. However, brisk walking is still a great exercise and can be preferable for individuals looking for a lower impact activity or those just starting their fitness journey.

Can I use the Brisk Walking Calories Calculator for walking at different speeds?

The calculator is designed for brisk walking, typically defined as walking at a pace of 3 to 4.5 mph. If you walk at a significantly different speed, the calorie estimate may not be accurate. For more accurate results at different speeds, consider using a general walking calories calculator or one tailored to your specific speed.
