Can someone tell me the difference between a verb and its -ing form? Which one should be used when?

For example:
To improve fitness, Peter should be doing running instead of walking.

To improve fitness, Peter should do running instead of walking.

I am not sure if these examples are 100% correct, but I hope you all understand what I am asking. When do I use "be doing " and when do I use "do"?

Any response shall be appreciated.
