6 Minute Walk Test

The 6 Minute Walk test is part of the Senior Fitness Test Protocol, and is designed to test the functional fitness of seniors. It is an adaptation of the Cooper 12 minute run. For people who use orthopedic devices when walking, as well as people who have difficulty balancing, there is an alternative 2 minute step in place test.

males: Walk Distance (meters) = 867 – (5.71 age, yrs) + (1.03 height, cm)
females: Walk Distance (meters) = 525 – (2.86 age, yrs) + (2.71 height, cm) – (6.22 BMI)
