Free Maximum Heart Rate Calculator

If you monitor your heart rate during exercise, you can keep track of how hard you're exercising. Your target heart range is the range of heartbeats per minute that is ideal for you during workouts. If you've been inactive or your goal is to stay in shape, you should have a target heart range with a lower value of 50% of your maximum heart rate and an upper value of 70% of your maximum heart rate.
