Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The study will be conducted at the Poznan University of Physical Eduaction in Gorzow Wielkopolski. Following recruitment of eligible healthy young and older adults, the participants will be required to take part in a community settings outdoor walking test with GPS device, a balance test (Short Physical Performance Battery), physical activity assessment (PASE questionnairre), grip strength (grip meter), quality of life (SF36, WHOQO) - BREF, EQ-5D-5L), bodyfat percentage (Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology). Participants will be required to complete the community settings outdoor walking test with GPS device on one day, and the rest of the tests on a second, consecutive day. The community settings outdoor walking test with GPS device will be performed twice – the second study will be conducted one week later. Each outdoor walking test with GPS device will last for 60 minutes. The GPS device will be worn on a wrist. Patients will be asked to walk with self-selected, usual pace. The physiotherapist will start the device and stop it after each test.

Summary
Brief summary
The main aim of the study is to assess the reliability of the community settings outdoor walking test with GPS device among young and older adults. 120 subjects (women and men) are planning to take part in the research. After enrollment, all subjects twice will undergo assessment of total walking distance (km) in community settings outdoor walking test with GPS device.
We assume that the community settings outdoor walking test with GPS device will be a reliable tool for an objective assessment of the walking abilities.
