Target Heart Rate Calculator

Your target heart rate is the range at which sustained physical activity—running, cycling, swimming laps, or any other aerobic exercise—is considered safe and effective. It is a percentage of what your maximum heart rate should be. The more fit you are, the higher the percentage can go. This calculator uses the age-based method to determine your target heart rate.
