Target Heart Rate Calculator

Your target heart rate is the range at which exercise is considered safe and effective. It is a percentage of what your maximum heart rate should be. This calculator uses the age-based method to figure out your target heart rate for how hard you exercise. Medium-intensity aerobic exercise includes activities such as walking fast, yard work, or doing water aerobics. High-intensity aerobic exercise includes activities such as running, cycling, and swimming laps.
