Interactive Tool: What Is Your Target Heart Rate?
What does this tool measure?
This tool will help you find your target heart rate based on your:
- Resting heart rate.
- Activity level.
Your target heart rate can guide you to how hard you should exercise so you can get the most aerobic benefit from your workout.
Do not use this target heart rate measurement if you are taking medicine that affects your heart rate, such as Reference beta-blockers Opens New Window, Reference calcium channel blockers Opens New Window, or digoxin. If you have a heart condition or other chronic disease, talk to your doctor before you start an exercise program.
