Graphic source: https://www.traininglab-italia.com/6-minutes-walking-test-2/

American Thoracic Society developed guidelines for the 6MWT in clinical settings. In healthy subjects, the 6-min walk distance (6MWD) ranges from 400 to 700 m, the main predictor variables being gender, age and height. (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0954611106000060)

The six minute walk distance in healthy adults has been reported to range from 400m to 700m

There are standard equations that help with calculating the 6MWT score. Here is one that uses your body mass index and age.

For men, An equation to calculate 6MWT score using body mass index (BMI) is as follows
6 MWD = 1140 m - (5.61 x BMI) - (6.94 x age)

For women,
6 MWD = 1017 m - (6.24 x BMI) - (5.83 x age)
