To get the most from training, your clients need more than instruction. Our tools help evaluate current fitness and measure progress—helping you choose the right workout for their personal goals.
Your resting and active heart rate is a determining factor in your overall endurance and heart health. Use our calculator to test your own heart rate.
The target heart rate (THR) equation is a quick, easy method of finding a heart rate range or zone for aerobic exercise.
What Should I Use as My Target Heart Rate?
Low Intensity, Long Duration (LILD)
High Intensity, Short Duration (HISD)
How Do I Measure Heart Rate?
Some cardio equipment may contain some type of heart rate monitor. However, if it does not, or you are not using a machine, you may monitor your heart rate by checking your own pulse. While you could count pulse for a full minute, it may be easier to check the pulse for 10 second intervals periodically throughout the exercise session to monitor heart rate. When the number of beats per 10 seconds is determined, one can multiply by 6 to get an estimated number of beats per minute. For example, 25 beats per 10 seconds x 6 = 150 BPM.
