Target Heart Rate Calculator

Your heart rate is the number of heartbeats per unit of time, expressed as beats per minute, which can vary as your body's need for oxygen changes, such as during exercising or sleeping.

Target heart rates let you measure your initial fitness level and monitor your progress in a fitness program.

Your target heart rate zone is the range between 60% and 80% of your maximum heart rate.

The Target Heart Rate (THR), or Training Heart Rate, is a desired range of heart rate reached during aerobic exercise which enables one's heart and lungs to receive the most benefit from a workout. This range varies based on one's physical condition, gender, and previous training.
