I think some recommendations say that in order to get health benefits (e.g. have lower risk of some possible health issues in the future) one should do

"do at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity a week or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity activity a week".

I did some research and I think doing a brisk walk is considered average intensity activity.

But for me to do brisk walk I would need to go far from home to a place where I can do brisk walk, so my question is, is there any difference if I do brisk walk at home vs brisk walk outside: By Brisk walk at home I mean imagine you are standing on the same place but moving your legs at a faster pace, like you would do when walking, just you don't move forward. So is there difference between such brisk walk and normal brisk walk in terms of above goal?
