Heart Rate Calculator

Determine the best target heart rate zone for burning fat.
If you are in good health and engage in low to medium exercise, you will typically burn fat between 60% and 70% of your maximum heart rate.
If you are in good aerobic shape (advanced fitness), select a target heart rate zone between 70% and 85% of your maximum heart rate.

Note: These are theoretical numbers based on common research. Please consult your physician to determine if these numbers are best for you.
